Paramount Global today announced a new brand positioning and trade campaign around the tag ‘Popular is Paramount’ to reflect “the company’s indisputable strength in making popular content and content popular for every audience.”
“‘Popular is Paramount’ is a celebration of our company, content and creative excellence,” said CEO Bob Bakish. “It simply captures what we do best — giving audiences what they want, with smart strategies that maximize the reach and power of our unified portfolio to successfully market and distribute IP all around the world at scale. Our content engine is driving huge and undeniable momentum, underscoring our ability to produce big, mass market hits across genres, demographics, formats and platforms.”
Directed to the advertiser, distributor, investor and creative communities, the campaign was produced in-house and will run through the summer of 2023. It features Par’s biggest IP, aiming for “eye-catching declarations of content leadership in all genres and formats, including film, television and streaming.” It will roll out across owned and paid media, as well as “high-impact” out-of-home placements in New York and Los Angeles.
