SKYN® Celebrates Moon Landing’s 50thAnniversary with Campaign Reminding Us to Explore Ourselves
Decades after we first set foot on the moon, the idea of self-exploration is still considered taboo and sex toys remain illegal in many places, a perception SKYN® hopes to change. To accompany the take-off, SKYN® is launching a campaign with a film that pays tribute to exploration, using historical footage from NASA, and asks: “We were never afraid of exploring planets located millions of miles from us… so why then are we so afraid to explore our own bodies?"
The film will be accompanied by an outdoor campaign featuring the tagline “Exploring space is wonderful. Exploring ourselves should be too”, with billboard trucks circling the headquarters of NASA in Washington, D.C. and SpaceX in L.A.
SKYN® recently ventured into new territory itself. Earlier this year the brand introduced its own ED pill that can be ordered online and which comes in special packaging, a designer case that always stands on its own. By normalizing ED and the notion of self-exploration, the popular brand hopes to carry out its mission to erase stigmas and make us more comfortable with ourselves.
The rockets are all very phallic, and so are some of the glorious space images, which is fun. Art direction is really quite nice here, but I find the connection between exploring space and exploring myself a little thin.
