  • 7-Eleven

7-Eleven has launched a new brand campaign called “Take it to Eleven!” The new “Take it to Eleven,” tagline and campaign is born of the notion that 7-Eleven has always been a brand with customer-obsession at the core, going over the top to feed people’s joy and always meeting them where they are by offering small delights that are a bright spot in the day. The Dallas-based c-store behemoth, with nearly 12,000 stores in North America, has more than doubled its marketing investment in 2021, following a period where happiness among Americans reached a 50-year low, according to the University of Chicago. As the pandemic attracted customers to the convenience store category, 7-Eleven commissioned extensive research that revealed that consumers saw the brand as the “ingenious accomplice” amid the unpredictability of life. A new full-funnel integrated campaign, developed with the brand’s creative and media agency 360i, “Take it To Eleven,” embraces an attitude that makes a big deal out of even the smallest of things. It’s full of youthful energy and zeal — all against the backdrop of a 7-Eleven parking lot — a stage where everyone, every subculture, is welcome to be themselves. The campaign is directed by Harmony Korine — the creative force behind Kids, Spring Breakers and Gucci collaborations. The campaign launched on April 28 across television, online video/CTV, OOH, social, display, radio and digital audio.
