Leanforwards – A&E Trade Campaign

Client: A&E / A&E Networks

Project: Trade Campaign

Visit: The Museum of Leanforwards

What the hell’s a Leanforward? that’s the question we asked A&E when they asked us to help them unveil their nueroscientific discovery of the “Leanforward” viewer to the marketing world. They told us that Leanforwards were highly evolved viewers who preferred the kind of deeply engaging programming found on A&E. Recent studies had revealed that these “Leanforwards” actually leaned forward and immersed themselves in both the programs and the ads. This made them “humans of interest” to the media buying and planning hominids housed in North America’s innumerable marketing and media buying firms. It also made the “Museum of Leanforwards” the perfect pilgrimage for aficionados of high engagement marketing.
