The Last OG Other Projects
TBS tapped Wil Power Entertainment to maximize awareness around the highlyanticipated The Last O.G. television series. We developed and executed an African
American targeted campaign including beauty salon and barbershop influencer outreach,
experiential activations and social media management.
Understanding the cultural significance of beauty salons and barbershops as a way to drive buzz and WOM within the African-American community, WPE activated selected beauty and barbershops in the top AA markets across the nation. Beauty and barbershop activations included customized ‘instore’ merchandising to enhance the salon experience for AA patrons as well as street teaming activities to increase awareness and appointment viewing for The Last O.G. series.
Salon Takeovers and Screening Parties
To promote The Last O.G. and to highlight the shows storyline , our salon ambassadors distributed branded premium assets (designed and developed as custom pieces for salon distribution) to top beauty salons and barbershops in key markets . The branded swag and
subsequent distribution were an effective way to reach a captive AA audience, while organically messaging about the television sitcom through branded premiums.
The branded swag items served as a conversation starter and buzz driver of the shows theme.
Social Media Strategy
Tasked with coordinating salon social media, we developed a curated list of beauty salon influencers with engaged fan bases that aligned with The Last O.G's target demographic. To maximize reach, we worked with salon influencers to develop creative
concepts that felt authentic to their fans.
