Puma definitely knows their audience. Today on the blog, you’ll learn how they use the knowledge of their audience to create a great advertising campaign.

First let’s look at one ad. We see young people having fun at night. They’re bowling, playing darts, foosball, table tennis, and pool. They’re also singing a song. They sing:

Everywhere we go (Everywhere we go)

People want to know (People want to know)

Who we are (Who we are)

So we tell them (So we tell them)

We are athletes (We are athletes)

Mighty, mighty athletes (Mighty, mighty athletes)

Remember to play the ball (Remember to play the ball)

Loser buys a round for all (Loser buys a round for all)

Here’s my number just in case (Here’s my number just in case)

Put the falafel in my face (Put the falafel in my face)

Because we are athletes (We are athletes)

Mighty, mighty athletes (Mighty, mighty athletes)

We are athletes (We are athletes)

Mighty, mighty athletes (Mighty, mighty athletes)

If the bouncer doesn’t like us (We go to another place)

Then at the end we see Puma’s slogan: Here’s to the after-hours athlete

Puma knows their audience well. They’re an athletic shoe, but most people actually wear their shoes while they’re hanging out with their friends. To combine these two ideas–athletic shoes and hanging with friends–Puma focuses on the games we play when we’re out at night.

And they’re right. Everyone loves playing games and having fun with their friends. So let Nike be the shoe that you wear while you run. Puma will be the shoe you wear while you’re having fun with your friends.
