Madness or people with a sense of belonging?

I am fascinated by The North Face advertisement “Question Madness”. Mark Schaefer talks in his new book “Marketing Rebellion” about how the company highlights the madness of extreme sports people, who build a true sense of belonging. As Mark Schaefer wrote in his book

“Belonging is primal and fundamental to our sense of happiness and well-being.”

This advertisement tells stories that serve, inspire and entertain the extreme sport climbing community. This is truly new advertising people want to see today where we are moving towards an ad-free world. We all want to belong to a community that shares our personal values. Meaning companies need to serve their fans.

Watch the video and share your thoughts. Is it madness or people on the quest of belonging?

Be more human and let the marketing rebellion movement begin.

Mark W. Schaefer is an internationally-acclaimed speaker, author and college educator. His other books include “KNOWN”, “The Content Code,” “Return On Influence,” and “The Tao of Twitter,” the best-selling book on Twitter in the world.
