Diesel: Be Stupid Advertising Campaign
“Be Smart” – that is what our parents and teachers told us since we were young. While Diesel, an international jeans brand, takes “Be Stupid” as its philosophy. Are you feeling inexplicable? Maybe the following slogans will help you take away your doubts.
Diesel Stupid Philosophy
Like balloons, we are filled with hopes and dreams. But. Over time a single sentence creeps into our lives. Don’t be stupid. It’s the crusher of possibility. It’s the worlds greatest deflator. The world is full of smart people. Doing all kind of smart things… Thats smart.
Well, we’re with stupid. Stupid is the relentless pursuit of a regret free life. Smart may have the brains…
but stupid has the balls. The smart might recognize things for how they are. The stupid see things for how they could be. Smart critiques. Stupid creates. The fact is if we didnt have stupid thoughts wed have no interesting thoughts at all. Smart may have the plans… but stupid has the stories.
Smart may have the authority but stupid has one hell of a hangover. Its not smart to take risks… Its stupid.
To be stupid is to be brave. The stupid isnt afraid to fail. The stupid know there are worse things than failure… like not even trying.
Smart had one good idea, and that idea was stupid. You can’t outsmart stupid. So don’t even try. Remember only stupid can be truly brilliant. ( Source from Diesel )
The “Be Stupid” campaign is looking for 100 creative individuals (so-called stupid acts) to feature its coming Diesel Stupid Music Video, and will double up as Diesel’s 2010 clothing catalogue. Meanwhile, the unique video will not only exhibit the new collection, it will also expose the participators and their creative cause by directing people to their personal website and social networks. The following is the campaign, enjoy it and you will find what the real “Stupid” is.
