Droga5 NY created the “Be Free, Baby” campaign for Huggies which envisions a world where babies are free from rash and irritation, and parents are confident in protecting their baby’s delicate skin. It celebrates authentic parenting moments and the joy of babies feeling comfortable in their skin. 

The highlight is this film “If You’re Rash-Free and You Know It” with a reimagined punk-rock nursery rhyme to portray the playful freedom of rash-free babies. Max Weiland of production company Love Song directed the :60 showcases authentic moments in parenting and the carefree (sometimes chaotic) nature of babies whose behavior isn’t rash (or more accurately, isn’t affected by diaper rash) thanks to Huggies new Skin Essentials diapers.

Music house Milk & Honey reimagined the original nursery rhyme “if you’re happy and you know it” as a punk-rock anthem.

“What I’ve always loved about the Huggies brand--and all the ‘We Got You, Baby’ work--is that they always talk directly to baby, centering the story on their experience,” said Ted Meyer, creative director at Droga5 NY. “In this work, I love that even as we’re launching a new line of products, we’re doing it in a way that puts babies first--their joy, their comfort, their silly, happy messiness. Ultimately, it’s a story about babyhood and what it can be when babies are free to be themselves.”
