Osmo Teams Up with WE ARE Pi to Launch National Advertising Campaign Aimed at Inspiring Childhood Creativity by Kaz

The “‘Me, Mo & Osmo”’ campaign asks kids to draw something that will cure the hiccuping Mo the Monster

Osmo Celebrates the Holiday Season With Interactive Play Campaign

WE ARE Pi creates “Me, Mo & Osmo”, inspiring children’s creativity; introducing kids across the nation to Mo the Monster and the colourful, creative world of Osmo.

The 30 second and 15 second TV spots bring the interactivity of Osmo to life in a story co-created with children from the script stage to the final drawings featured in the story. The campaign ran on TV and social channels in the United States through the Holiday '16 season. 

The world of Osmo is a place where children play beyond the screen, where technology is magical and learning is fun. The Osmo experience is rooted in the creative physical world, but brings those handcrafted ideas to life in a digital world. 

Jerome Scholler, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Osmo adds : “For parents struggling to balance the on and off screen time that they allow their kids, Osmo is the perfect solution offering a "tangible play" experience that helps kids get out of the locked-in relationship with the iPad screen, and reconnects them to the people and objects around them. We believe the new campaign created with our partners WE ARE Pi, perfectly portrays this unique proposition.”

Alex Bennett Grant, managing director at WE ARE Pi says, “Osmo is exactly the kind of brand WE ARE Pi was founded to partner with, they are a team of thought leaders moving the modern play experience forwards with a goal to give kids a more healthy relationship with devices. A purpose like that made it a joy for our gang of pirates to bring Osmo to life with entertaining storytelling that we hope will get them a few steps closer to realizing the mission.”

The Desperados Bass Drop by Kaz

We came, we saw and we dropped the bass like no-one has ever dropped the bass before. Teaming up with uber-experimental dance label The Barong Family, DJ Mike Cervello and acclaimed neuroscientist Dr Daniel Levitin we dared to remix the rules and take the bass drop to a higher level, literally.

Our Bass Drop experiment is the first music festival to be held in zero gravity. We transformed an aeroplane into a pulsating club, with a light show and sound system and flew to 30,000ft above Las Vegas. As the plane dropped to 15,000ft so did the bass, and when the bass dropped so did the dance floor sending the crowd floating and dancing in zero gravity.

The crowd were an eclectic mix of lucky winners and influencers from all over the world who joined us in Las Vegas for this wild experiment.

Here are some words from the press:
