PHD and Nick Jr. UK Launch 'Media First' 'Shimmer and Shine' Advertising Campaign

PHD has brought out-of-home specialist Clear Channel together with, the UK’s fastest-growing parenting publisher, to promote Nickelodeon's hit preschool series Shimmer and Shine!

The partnership, launched on Friday October 26th, will see nine different pieces of Channel Mum influencer content run on Clear Channel digital screens in shopping malls across the UK.

The series, which airs on Nick Jr. features twin genies-in-training, Shimmer and Shine, who grant wishes for their human best friend, Leah.

The campaign features leading mum influencers performing the iconic Shimmer and Shine ‘Genie Dance’ from the show with their kids in content designed to reflect the programme’s content and style.

The upbeat content features a diverse mix of 10 different mums from around the UK and the digital screens will be running full motion video to maximise audience engagement and stand out.

Content will also be tailored to feature mum influencers in malls in their home regions, where many are already local celebrities.
