Rutger in norway

For the first time in their history, the Dutch Army worked with a digital content-central campaign. We sent an embedded reporter -

a journalist with leading opinion-blog Geenstijl  with a group of army trainees on training location in Norway. Instead of reporting, he actively joined the training. Unsurprisingly, he proved to be unsuitable for the job. Our target group intuitively understood what it takes to be suitable

for the job, delivering on the campaign objective.







Project details

The existing ‘geschikt/ongeschikt’ campaign platform has difficulties in reaching the younger target groups (18-25 y.o.).

The challenging life in the Royal Army develops unique and lasting bonds.
