    Viral OB tampons - Johnson & Johnson new viral campaign marks the return of feminine hygiene product on the market after an interruption of production. To apologize, more than 65 000 women received an email that led them to their own personal music video, and an apology they’ll never forget. This viral had more than 1 million hits only in one weekend, 1 million Facebook shares, 1.8 million Twitter impressions and 1 million coupons only after 3 weeks. The OB viral has been the reel talk talk on the web and the marketing press. After 3 months the viral had 27 millions unique video views  and one year after more over 47 million of views. A Little sorry got big.

    The film director Christian Langlois and The creative agency Lowe Roche  created a satire of a power ballad music video. Immersed in a tacky atmosphere a sticky pop singer makes apologies to the consumer, imploring her to follow him again and pick up where they left. Syrupy, charming, excessive, dripping, It's surprising. The tricks only possible in interactive viral communication pushing this message in a rarely seen level of customization and personalization.
