CHICAGO (June 24, 2019) – Empower’s rapidly growing Chicago office is launching three national TV commercial spots for client Dremel, the leader in rotary tool systems and subsidiary of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. The 15-second and two six-second spots take a humorous approach to even the tidiest of homeowner’s most dreaded cleaning struggles. View the videos.

The Creative Media Agency garnered insights from social listening that revealed the mentality and attitude of “Cleaning Maximizers.”

“They are obsessed with cleaning, technology and a DIY mindset,” said Chief Creative Officer, Tinus Strydom. “We centered the Creative around the opportunity to let clean freaks in on a big secret – there’s now a silver bullet for their spot cleaning needs. We also found that couples working together makes spot cleaning easier and more enjoyable. Furthermore, when a couple finds the right cleaning solution there’s no more fighting over who’s doing what in the chore routine. This data helped anchor the script and direction with a human element,” Strydom explains.

Even clean freaks don’t want to be bogged down with endless hours of scrubbing, wiping and mopping. That’s why the Dremel Versa power cleaning tool is the perfect solution for those daily tasks that can undoubtedly make you want to throw in the towel. These TV spots inspire them to tackle the toughest household grime with one awesome green clean machine.
