Best Night Ever

Best Night Ever

We created three video exclusives: two music videos with Azealia Banks and Ellie Goulding featuring unreleased tracks, and an interactive fashion video with US model Charlotte Free. We let the talent speak for itself, with ASOS product, styling and art direction complementing what they do best. A product carousel and world first ‘Want it, Pin it’ button increased dwell time by 32 hours and let viewers shop the product direct from the videos.


Interactive Video

The interactive videos featured across (desktop and mobile), ASOS’s YouTube channel, fashion blogs, mobile in-app media and Spotify, with the interactivity delivering two days and 18 hours of additional time with the brand. Videos featured a world-first ‘Want it, Pin it’ button allowing viewers to pin their favourite scene straight to their Pinterest boards and win the product, leading to over 28,000 re-pins (35x higher than our previous re-pinned content).

Celebrity content

Each celebrity shared details of what makes their #BestNightEver, such as party product edits, styling tips, beauty secrets, story-based interviews and playlists. They even gave live style advice via our innovative world first ‘Shop-along’ Google hangouts. This content was hosted on an celebrity hub (desktop and mobile), and print editorial, mobile apps, emails, YouTube, Twitter, G+, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Inspirational content

Because we know that our girl doesn’t stop getting ready once they’ve bought the outfit, we created an ‘inspire hub’ with practical how-to videos providing a wealth of ideas for styling, hair, make-up and nails. A series of #InspireMe videos received over 30k views on YouTube.

We wanted to give our girl ways to share her #BestNightEver with her friends, and even the world! The campaign’s hashtag #BestNightEver was used more times than any of our UK competitors’ brand or campaign tags including Topshop’s #Whosthatgirl. Images of our audience’s #BestNightEver were pulled in via a Global Party Feed and a world first Cover Photo Booth let them personalise their party photos to generate a totally unique Facebook cover photo. The Facebook app featuring both tools had over 55,000 unique visitors, a 58% return rate and an average dwell time of over three minutes.
