As it seems that the popular sitcom "Friends" has found a new life -- and audience -- through Netflix, this clever pre-roll campaign from Ogilvy, Paris is helping it along in France, too.

To promote the debut of all ten seasons of the sitcomin the country, the agency created responsive video ads that were tailored to the content that YouTube viewers set out to watch. The "Friendly Preroll Campaign" for Netflix tagged some of the top-searched videos and created pre-roll from "Friends" footage that related to the subject at hand.

For example, people viewing makeup tutorials would see Joey's Japanese makeup ad, those searching for cats got to see Rachel's hairless kitty and dance video searchers would see Monica and Chandler's famous moves.
