Gary the GObot is brought to life in UltraSuperNew Singapore’s Campaign for Storefriendly
Singapore based Self Storage company Storefriendly is helping people to de-clutter their lives in a new campaign created by UltraSuperNew Singapore.
The campaign highlights the futuristic aspects of the brand and its service, with its fun characters portraying the diverse demographics of individuals across all age groups – shoe collectors, social butterflies, business owners and more.
The track which accompanies the film, ‘Make Space for the Future’ was created by an A.I. programme with lyrics written using machine learning after showing the program 200 pieces of Storefriendly assets. This bought Gary the GObot to life, who has now become the voice for the brand!
Storefriendly is a brand with a distinct focus on Tech and Innovation as its key differentiators. Customers won’t need a keycard to get access to their belongings, the self-storage facilities are all equipped with the latest facial recognition technology, and helpful automated GObots, named Gary, are on hand to do all the heavy lifting.
The brand aims to help Singaporeans make space for the future by using storage facilities to store ‘every-other-day’ items such as weekend wakeboarding or collector items – in order to declutter their lives and show how life doesn’t need to be dictated by lack of space in apartments/houses.
“Re-launching Storefriendly across Singapore, we wanted to prove that self-storage can adapt and innovate with futuristic solutions. Partnering with UltraSuperNew, they pushed us out of our comfort zone with an engaging creative direction and surprising music video that snatches your attention. Perfectly highlighting our automated robots and cutting-edge service to challenge preconceptions on how to best use the space Singaporeans really have at their disposal, at home and with us,” said Jes Johansen, CEO of Storefriendly.
Sy Chia, Associate Creative Director of UltraSuperNew added, “We used predictive-text keyboards (after feeding it 200 pieces of Storefriendly assets) to create the narrative of this futuristic, Y2K-inspired music video. The campaign’s quirky nature came from experimenting and working closely with Storefriendly, which is an integral part of our agency’s DNA.”
