This 10k USD hat comes with a complimentary 10k USD marketing campaign

Newly founded Swedish advertising agency Backroad is launching ”The 10k Merch Store”, where the world’s first 10 000 USD hat and beanie to come with a free 10 000 USD marketing campaign can be bought. 

But while 10 000 USD is a lot of money to pay for a hat, it’s a lot more compelling for a marketing activation.

Backroad’s creative director, Erik Ström, says:

"It’s our first year as an agency, and we wanted to spread our merch to the world. But then we thought, why not throw in a marketing campaign to the people who gets it? Marketing is, after all, what we do."


He continues:

"Of course it’s a wink to exclusive and over-priced brands, too. If it’s possible to sell everyday objects for hundreds of dollars with people lining up for days to buy a hat with a specific logo, why not go all the way up to 10k while at it.

At Backroad, we believe in ideas that gets spread organically. The way to achieve that is to create activations that your target group think is interesting enough to pass on to their friends. And those ideas doesn’t necessarily need a huge budget to render great results."
