It was Father’s day yesterday and, as always, brands jumped at the opportunity to market to dads. Well, not all of them. Samsung UK thought it would be more interesting to target those to whom Father’s day can be a great opportunity to celebrate someone they love: yes, Samsung UK decided to help children celebrate their hero dads.

With the #DadIOU (Dad I Owe yoU) campaign, Samsung UK helped people to show their appreciation to their dads on this Father’s day. The campaign, created by Cheil UK, was about asking Samsung’s followers across its social media channels to tweet their pledge to their dads.

Samsung then selected tweets on a first come, first served basis and forwarded them to a dedicated team of illustrators who crafted and designed bespoke illustrated IOU coupons. The personalised IOU coupons were tweeted back to the users as an image that could be printed out and shared with their dads on Father’s day.

This could involve turning an IOU of mowing the lawn to delivering a team of gardeners to spruce up the place, or supersizing a car wash into a full valet service.

Oh if you “forgot” to celebrate your dad yesterday, here is your chance to make up for it:
