Netflix is keeping Canadians guessing in the newest element of its “You Gotta Get It, To Get It” creative platform.
Following in the footsteps of the popular “Pep Talk” TV spot, which features a hockey coach motivating his players with references to a rousing film speech he never actually quotes, Netflix Canada and DDB Canada’s Vancouver office have launched a new print and social component of the campaign.
The series of 12 ads is meant to prompt speculation about which movie or television show they portray. One, for example, features a leg protruding from a wood chipper — a nod to the Coen brothers’ film Fargo.
“Pep Talk,” took home the gold at this year’s Marketing Awards in the “Film: Television Single 30 Seconds and Over” category and a bronze Film Craft Lion at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity.
