Rogers introduced today a new brand platform that focuses on the investments it’s making to bring Canadians the best communications and entertainment experiences from around the world.

The platform features a new TV spot with John Krasinski lip-syncing and dancing to ‘Shake It Off’ (Taylor’s Version) as he’s streaming music on his phone while boating on Lake Simcoe in Ontario. In the spot, Krasinski thinks he’s alone out on the lake only to discover a local fisherman watching him from a distance. The spot ends with “We do our thing, so you can do yours. We got you.”

“Taylor Swift is a global phenomenon and with her upcoming concerts in Toronto and Vancouver, we thought it would be a fun way to showcase the power of our 5G network and introduce our new brand platform,” said Terrie Tweddle, Chief Brand and Communications Officer.  “The new platform is all about putting our customers and their experiences front and centre in everything we do.”

The campaign, developed by Publicis, will be in market from July 10 to September 22 and will feature high-impact advertising, including billboards, transit and airport takeovers, and a significant online presence. Outside of the core TV spot, the campaign will feature three engaging online videos with Krasinski. To download the main television spot, click here. To find out more about the platform, click here. In Quebec, the company has created a tailored platform, Là on jase, which means, ‘Now you’re talking,’ and will launch a customized campaign in the fall.
