When approaching a campaign to launch the series DC Super Hero Girls, Warner Bros. and LA-based ad agency The Woo decided to flip an old superhero paradigm on its head. They discovered girls didn’t aspire to become like their favorite superheroes, the characters are beloved for qualities girls saw in themselves. Strength, kindness, intelligence - these were the powers that united and inspired. Enter “She’s Like Me.” "DC Super Hero Girls" is a popular animated franchise that first found a devoted audience as a web-series and has recently been rebooted as an animated show on Cartoon Network. Featuring Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Supergirl, Green Lantern, and Zatanna — not to mention other popular characters from the DC universe — these teenaged supers have to balance their lives as crime-fighters and as normal high-school students trying to figure out their place in the world. In the spirit of the series and based on ample research about its viewers, The Woo and Warner Bros. crafted a campaign built upon a deep belief in empowering young girls and their families through entertaining, positive content. Featuring the photography of Josh Rossi (who rose to fame after photos of his young daughter dressed as Wonder Woman went viral), and three videos of young girls heroically facing everyday situations, they created moments that would appeal to both kids and their parents. And appeal they did - with the spots quickly achieving millions of views.
