Kellogg’s* Vector* Celebrates Rec Sports’ Return by Turning Couches into Sports Bags
By Strategic Objectives
MISSISSAUGA, ON, February 22, 2022 – With one of the longest rec sports offseasons coming to an end and rec leagues finally starting back up, Kellogg’s* Vector* is helping Canadians get back in the game with the launch of Off The Couch Bags – a line of five, one-of-a-kind, limited-edition sports bags made from the couches we’ve been stuck on for so long. Sport lovers can visit OffTheCouchBags.ca to learn more about the collection and enter for a chance to win one of these unique bags filled with boxes of Vector Cereal, which provides the protein and energy to help Canadians get back to the sports they love.
“People who love Vector crave sports. Being able to get back on the ice, the court or the field is a big moment and we want to support them in making that happen,” says Christine Jakovcic, Vice President Marketing & Nutrition, Kellogg Canada Inc. “With whole grains, vitamins and minerals to provide protein and sustained energy, Vector has always energized Canadians’ passion for an active lifestyle and the Off The Couch Bags are another way we are helping Canadians celebrate the exciting and long-awaited return to sport.”
Handcrafted in Canada, the Off the Couch Bags are made from actual, pre-loved couches purchased from a community-focused charitable organization and created specifically for Canadian’s favourite sports. The line-up includes:
- The Socctional – A soccer bag to help you hop off and throw on those cleats
- The 40-Loveseat – Top your local ladder with this lovely periwinkle racquet bag
- The Ol’ Leather – A baseball bag made of worked-in-to-perfection couch leather
- The Chestpressterfield – A couch got ripped so you can too with this gym bag
- The Slapshottoman – Go from recliner to first-liner with this hockey bag
“After being benched for so long on our couches, it was important that Vector be a part of getting athletes back to the sports they love,” adds Steve Persico, Co-Chief Creative Officer at Leo Burnett Toronto. “Ripping up the couches we’ve been stuck on and turning them into sports bags is a symbol of turning our pent-up energy into something positive as we finally get back in the game.”
The Vector Off the Couch Bags campaign is running online with social and digital video ads driving to the website – OffTheCouchBags.ca – for more details. Strategy and creative was led by Leo Burnett Toronto with media buying by Starcom and PR communications by Strategic Objectives.
