Claritin wants to see how people celebrate living Claritin Clear, with short, UGC-style video that shows someone living as if they don’t have allergies.

SHOW ME THE BRIEF

Make a short, :05-:10 video for Claritin allergy brand that looks & feels like UGC (user-generated-content) that you would see on social platforms like TikTok & Instagram Reels.  The videos should show how people are living Claritin Clear by visually & playfully dramatizing the feeling of living as if you don’t have allergies – that Claritin Clear feeling.  When you feel Claritin Clear, everything is more dramatic, more vibrant, more entertaining & over-the-top.

NOTE:  You do not need suffer from allergies to submit content for this assignment.  We do want you to be able to visually demonstrate a sense of freedom & optimism you might experience when you’re living as if you don’t have allergies.  If you are an allergy sufferer & have treated your allergies at some point with Claritin, please let us know, as this could be beneficial in our selection of video content for use.

Background:
Claritin is a global allergy relief brand that millions of people around the world trust to relieve them of their allergy symptoms.  Claritin is powerful allergy relief that works for 24-hours & is non-drowsy.

In 2024, Claritin is launching a new creative campaign that brings the Live Claritin Clear platform to life in a new, more modern & relatable way.  We are bringing new meaning & life to “Claritin Clear” – reminding consumers that only Claritin gives you the clarity to experience life as if you don’t have allergies.

What We’re After:
We already have larger TVC/OLV films that dramatize what it’s like to Live Claritin Clear & live as if you don’t have allergies.  For this content, we want short, social video assets that look & feel very native to social platforms.  With that in mind, a key inspiration for this social content is the “Be Like” meme structure found across many social platforms, where consumers express their feelings, emotions, points-of-view on many topics, using the “_______ Be Like _______” structure.  Download the brief from the sidebar for examples of this structure.

For Claritin, we want to focus on quick “Claritin Clear Be Like _____” social videos.  What are the moments that capture the superior feeling you get when you feel like you can finally live as if you don’t have allergies.  Moments you would miss out on if we were not living Claritin Clear.

We want quick, visual gets, in either outdoor or indoor setting.
And, we are seeking diversity in interests & types of people.

Tone:
Instead of focusing on the negative symptoms of allergies, Claritin is unabashedly optimistic & uplifting. Honest but not blunt.  Active but not unpredictable.  We want people to be able to enjoy life, and we lead by example. We get a smile out of making people smile and the only thing we take seriously is not taking everything so seriously.


Creative Direction:

We need two types of videos:

  • Videos that feature adults (ages 18-40) that we will use for Claritin.
  • Videos that feature children (ages 2-8) that we will use for Children’s Claritin.



All content should feel native to TikTok, Reels, etc. – filmed on iPhone or other mobile device for visual & social channel authenticity.

For these social videos, they need to look & feel like UGC (user-generated-content), as if we just found them on TikTok or Instagram Reels.  We want to create a series of assets that feel organic to social & visually & playfully dramatize the Claritin Clear feeling.  When you feel Claritin Clear everything is more dramatic, more ‘over-the-top,’ more vibrant & vivid, more entertaining & fun. 

So, go beyond everyday scenarios.  Over-dramatize usual scenarios to make them stand out with a bit of over-the-top humor.  When you Live Claritin Clear, you do more than just walk a dog – you confidently walk 8 long-haired dogs through an outdoor park with trees & grass & pollen & allergens all around you.  It is here that we will help people understand that living Claritin Clear is not just living your life, it’s living your absolute best life. We love hyperbole & exaggeration that is entertaining & leaves people with a smile (without being slapstick funny).

What are moments where you need to not only feel free from allergies, but also not be hindered by drowsiness (Claritin is non-drowsy allergy relief, after all).  Feel free to lean into situations where allergy sufferers need to be fully present, focused & engaged, like dancing with roller blades on during a very pollen, spring day. Avoid situations that are sleepy & low-energy, like reading a book or meditating.

Content we’d love to see:
Outdoor or Indoor:  Lean into situations where outdoor & indoor allergens are present.  Outdoor – summer or spring pollen from trees, flowers, grass, wild greenery/weeds.  Indoor – dust, pets, indoor plants/flowers.

Allergy cues are nice, but it must feel authentic & part of the story.  For example, a person cycling with a very furry dog on their back/in a backpack. The dog (pet fur) in this example is an obvious allergen. Being able to ride a bike without any signs of allergies from the dog is a quick get to what living claritin clear is like. Or it is someone dancing while mowing their very grassy, pollen-filled lawn. 

For anything filmed outdoors, we’d love to see content that features a real life blue sky & green grass.  Claritin is known for their “blue sky + green grass vista” on their packaging box, so content that is filmed with a visible blue sky, a few fluffy clouds, and green grass will likely get chosen.  We want to see this come to life with people in situations that include showing some real life blue sky & green grass.  So, for example:(Download brief from the sidebar for example)

For anything filmed indoors, include some natural light within the indoor environment so it doesn’t feel too dark or enclosed.  So, for example:(Download brief from the sidebar for example)

NOTE:  WE DO NOT WANT CLARITIN PACKAGE IN THE CONTENT.  BRAND SHOULD NOT BE PRESENT IN VIDEO.

Non-Drowsy:  Activities & moments that require a bit of clarity & alertness are great.  It’s here that we can drive home the fact that taking Claritin means you don’t have to worry about being groggy or sleepy, because you’re clear of allergies & clear of mind, allowing you to do incredible things.
