Bucharest, February 5 , 2024 – # RBJ – Medic One and MullenLowe Romania sign the newest Meltus campaign developed for Zentiva, following a creative pitch won in 2023. Titled “Meltus – The whole house is coughing”, the campaign addresses combating coughs through the Meltus product range suitable for soothing the entire family’s coughs.
Once coughing makes its presence felt in a family member, there is a risk of rapid transmission of the infectious cause through coughing to all household members. The campaign emphasizes this reality, starting from the Romanian expression “toată casa” (the whole house), which denotes the entire family.
“Meltus is a range of products suitable for soothing the coughs for the whole family, or as we commonly say, the whole house. The natural extracts and unique formulas are ready to bring relief and ease coughs for the whole family. We believe that every family deserves the best care when dealing with coughs, and through the new campaign, developed in collaboration with the Medic One and MullenLowe Romania teams, we invite everyone to discover Meltus syrups, in both adult and children’s variants, by watching the new creative executions in a mix of target-relevant channels: TV, radio, online, and OOH”, said Daniel Petre, Head of Marketing CHC, Zentiva Romania.
Inspired by those moments when we attribute faces and even various expressions to different objects, the creative execution of the campaign surprises viewers by personifying houses, turning them into living characters that experience coughing just like the entire family. Thus, the central idea, “The whole house is coughing”, becomes a reality, vividly illustrating that viral infections spread rapidly and can affect every person within the household.
“At Medic One, we take pride in our ability to bring a fresh and different perspective to each project, and ‘Meltus – The whole house is coughing’ is no exception. Together with our colleagues at MullenLowe Romania, we have managed to add value through the chosen creative approach. In a world flooded with advertising campaigns for health-related products, we enjoy shaping a concept that also stands out for its relevance, demonstrating that differentiation in the category is not just about adding a touch of novelty and beauty, but it relies on carefully processed insights translated into a great creative manner”, said Oana Cociașu, Managing Partner, Medic One.
“Meltus – The whole house is coughing is the result of a creative approach in which imagination meets reality. Based on natural ingredients and proven effectiveness, Meltus helps soothe the coughs of the entire family. Drawing inspiration from the magic of everyday life and moments when various objects seem to have their own expressions, we have transformed houses into living characters. Through this execution, we have brought to life the expression ‘the whole house is coughing’, personifying houses in a highly expressive manner – both in the TV spot and across the other communication channels”, said Silviu Antohe, Executive Creative Director, MullenLowe Romania.
Medic One, a full-service agency specialized in medical marketing and communication, and MullenLowe Romania, the brand agency that offers multi-channel creative solutions based on relevant data analysis and insights, present the new Meltus campaign through a diverse mix of deliverables, including a TV spot, online videos, YouTube ads, OOH, web banners, and a radio spot.
