Walking waxing stunt ‘So good, it hurts’
The Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto tore a strip off its competitors with this novel street-based promotion.
A man covered in waxing strips walked around town, inviting consumers to rip off a promotion coupon for a 25% discount on their next visit to Fuzz Wax. Each strip bore a cartoon face indicating the expected level of pain associated with waxing that part of his body. A simple, effective idea that really brought to life the brand’s slogan “So Good, it Hurts”.

Consumer technology is reshaping our world, and it’s only the great brands that stay on the crest.
