As part of the campaign, Megan Thee Stallion will perform live in Times Square on New Year’s Eve as part of a sponsorship with the Times Square Alliance, a business improvement district that runs the event. Other NYE sponsors include Kia, Carnival, Fontainebleau Las Vegas, Kay Jewelers and the Sino American Friendship Association, according to Times Square Alliance’s website.
The campaign, which was created with Barkley, also includes social content around Mother Fitness’ origins and a TikTok “Real Squat Girl Fit” challenge run by Megan Thee Stallion that will involve challenging people to do fitness squats. In addition, Planet Fitness is selling co-branded merchandise with the singer, including a hat, sweatshirt and water bottle.
“Megan allows us to be front and center with breakthrough messages that tied to Planet Fitness in an authentic way,” said Medeiros.
Digital and social parts of Plant Fitness’ campaign begin today and the commercial will begin airing on Dec. 30 on linear and connected TV. Planet Fitness worked with Crossmedia on media duties.
