Execution

To prove I WILL WHAT I WANT, we signed a woman who was sure to be judged, supermodel Gisele Bündchen. We announced the seemingly unlikely partnership, then as people reacted on social media, we used their comments in our TV ads just two days later. A web experience became a live social media experiment, with the entire online discussion about a single person happening on one website, in real time.

Outcome

I WILL WHAT I WANT featuring Gisele made uber-masculine Under Armour a symbol of women’s athletic aspiration, generating 1.5 billion media impressions.
