Listerine launches ‘Mouth Off’ digital campaign… it stinks.

Without holding its breath, Listerine has enjoyed the sweet smell of success with its mouth-cleansing products and it has certainly bared its teeth with its new YouTube campaign.

The brand has breathed fresh life into its product by launching its ‘Mouths Off’ digital campaign and using a ‘rap battle’ between six rappers to decide who is ‘baddest’ for the mouth.

Personally, this is like pulling teeth and such a campaign is unlikely to come up smelling of roses. The press release talks of reaching out to ‘young adults’ but I fear only children with milk teeth will be interested. If you ask me, it stinks.
