EE SHOWS HOW EVERY DAY CAN BE INCREDIBLE WITH THE iPhone 15 ON EE
22nd September 2023, London - EE has today launched its new campaign, Incredible Your Everyday, following the story of a father helping his daughter to live out her dreams of becoming an astronaut by using the new iPhone 15 to create a DIY rocket. Running across TV, Out Of Home (OOH), social and digital, the integrated campaign celebrates the unique moments in everyday life that can be made incredible with the iPhone 15 coupled with the UK’s best network.
Launching with an emotive TV spot debuting during tonight’s Rugby World Cup, the campaign was created by Saatchi & Saatchi and directed by Ben Strebel. The work builds on last year’s Dream Big creative platform, highlighting how every day can be incredible when you combine Apple’s best ever iPhone with the UK’s best network.
The film follows Leila, an ambitious amateur astronaut, who enlists her dad to help her build and paint a rocket of her own, after watching real life space launches on her iPhone 15. After several days of painstaking teamwork, they launch their creation into the atmosphere, cheered on by supportive family members watching the action through a crystal-clear video call. The familiar voice of Kevin Bacon narrates the mission explaining, “Human achievement. The drive to understand, to improve. These are the things that bring us greatness.”
Placing the iPhone 15 at the heart of their mission, the spot showcases how the special moments in everyday life can be elevated into something incredible with Apple’s most advanced smartphone technology along with EE’s superfast and reliable network.
Alongside a suite of bespoke social executions, the work will also sit across hero Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) and OOH. Situated in a number of high footfall locations such as Holland Park roundabout, the static and motion creative shows the silhouettes of Leila and her dad, watching as their rocket soars into the night sky. This heartwarming scene is overlaid with the new handset and a reminder to ‘Incredible your everyday with an incredible iPhone, the best network, and an everyday price’.
Pete Jeavons, Marketing Communications Director at EE, comments: “We know our customers have been highly anticipating the launch of the iPhone 15 and so we are delighted to offer this coveted smartphone on the UK’s best network. This campaign showcases how the speed and reliability of EE’s network, combined with Apple’s best ever iPhone, mean that even DIY rocket builds can be made incredible.”
Will John, Executive Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi adds: “There are moments in our everyday lives that mean everything. We wanted to celebrate them and show how technology can help elevate them into something incredible.”
The iPhone 15 line-up is available with a wide range of EE price plans with trade in options available. Those who take a Full Works Plan for iPhone and a 36-month Flex Pay agreement receive inclusive access to Apple One for 24 months, which bundles together Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and iCloud+ with 50 GB of online storage.
