To create a branded entertainment campaign for NIVEA MEN that truly reflected
the most irritating parts of men's lives, Break Media utilized its proprietary
Acumen research platform to survey its panel of thousands of guys who shared
the things in their lives they found most irritating. Break Media's creative
lab used these insights from real men to craft the stories for the web series.
"This has been a true partnership since the start bringing together brands in
NIVEA MEN and Made Man that wanted to build an incredibly entertaining content
series," says Mitch Rotter, Break Media's EVP of Programming, "The scale of
production and talent involved in this program rival the best of television in
a digitally optimized format and voice and brings together the ideal mix of
publisher, brand, and talent to bring the final product to life."
"Despite the array of razors in the marketplace, men continue to dread the
shaving experience as both painful and irritating," said Evan Eckman, Vice
President of Marketing – North America, Beiersdorf Inc. "With more than 90
years of men's grooming experience at NIVEA MEN, we understand men's skincare
needs better than ever - with our wide assortment of balms and gel solutions
specifically formulated for men with sensitive skin. By partnering with Break
Media on this initiative, we hope to help men silence shaving irritation once
and for all."
The NIVEA MEN campaign with MadeMan.com will launch the brand's Shave Gel,
Sensitive Face Care Gel Moisturizer, and Sensitive Post Shave Balm. In
addition to the web series, NIVEA MEN will have a mobile optimized content hub
on MadeMan.com that will feature editorial content created for NIVEA MEN,
including a sweepstakes opportunity (Shave off Your Monday Morning
Irritations) with a weekly winner. Prizes will include noise-cancelling
