Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The Asahi Shimbun enjoys the second largest circulation in the world, but its place in the home has been taken over by the so-called ‘four screens’ (TV, PC, Phone, and Tablet). Circulation has declined. Our challenge: Revitalise the paper’s image as a valuable home media.

Creative Execution
They printed The Massage Circulation Ad featuring a diagram of acupressure points.
Cut out... slip on... and knead.
Easy enough for anyone to deliver a great massage.
The cut out section also served as a letter of gratitude.
The Massaging Circulation Ad connected families in ways digital media couldn’t.

Results and Effectiveness
Tweets, blogs, and e-zines mentioned the ad.
75% of the readers responded positively.
The ad is displayed at the Japanese Newspaper Museum, NEWSPARK.

Even more importantly, families began to gather around the newspaper again.
