PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, Air Wick introduces its new brand campaign, Home is in the Air, with a heart-warming short film featuring a military family of eight. The film, inspired by the important role that scent plays in creating an atmosphere at home, tells the story of how one adored father stationed overseas was brought closer to home for holidays.
In the video, Air Wick captures three defining scents of The Feller family home – from a broken-in baseball glove to a cozy fire where the family enjoys sleepovers to a time-tested family recipe of apple pie – and creates a custom Air Wick scent collection just for the father, Kearen, a devoted soldier who has missed many pages of his home's story due to his deployment in the Middle East.
"Family and home are key elements that create the holiday atmosphere, yet thousands of Americans spend this time miles away from home," said Tiffany McLaud, Marketing Director, RB. "We were inspired by the Fellers' story and are proud to celebrate the special role that scent plays in creating the atmosphere of home."
In addition to the Home is in the Air video, the multimedia advertising campaign includes a 30-second equity television spot that takes viewers on a journey, depicting how a home's story is in the air all around us, from the scratches in the floor boards to favorite family photos. The spot will air on television starting December 29, 2014 and illustrates the role Air Wick and scent play in making a house a home. Both videos debuted on YouTube on Thursday.
