“Every great creator, athlete and innovator is driven by an internal passion - a desire to turn their dreams and ideas into reality.
This obsession is a state of mind, an inner drive. It's not about results, winning or achieving perfection.
The journey is the reward and true happiness comes from the pursuit.
It’s not about a final destination, and there is always a special place to keep going back to.”
FOOTHILL RANCH, USA, February 17, 2015: Pursuing an obsession isn’t unique to professional athletes, it binds everyone who shares a driving passion to turn their ideas into reality.
Launching February 17 and running through 2015, Oakley’s new ONE OBSESSION campaign invites and inspires people to join the brand’s global network of renowned athlete ambassadors in living out their passions.
The multi-channel brand campaign spans 22 countries and includes digital, social, advertising, outdoor, retail activations, live events and an enhanced digital experience on oakley.com/oneobsession.
#LiveYours hosts and ignites conversation around “where does your obsession take you?” The global social movement encourages fans to join over 450 Oakley athletes in sharing and celebrating their physical places of obsession around the world – from a remote mountain peak, backyard trail, secret surf spot or suburban garage. Oakley will reward #LiveYours contributions and those who are living out their obsession with surprise experiences and access to athletes who inspire them.
A “One Obsession” film debuts February 17 on Oakley.com, and all social and digital channels. The film features professional and non-professional athletes and teases a series of cinematic and intimate portraits to come.
Athlete stories of inspiration from around the globe will unfold throughout the year across multiple disciplines, including skateboarder Eric Koston, surfer Gabriel Medina, cyclist Mark Cavendish, all-star baseball player Matt Kemp, Moto GP champion Marc Marquez, cricketer Virat Kohli and badminton player Lin Dan.
Beginning in April, ONE OBSESSION will be brought to life through unique brand moments around the world. Three brand hubs will open to the public created for the community to live out their passions in skateboarding (Los Angeles), urban cycling (London) and baseball (New York).
“Oakley celebrates those who relentlessly pursue their passions and we encourage others to do the same,” said David Adamson, Oakley SVP of Marketing. “With ONE OBSESSION, we are excited to facilitate conversations with professional athletes - enabling them to connect with consumers through new, shared experiences.” Learn more at oakley.com/oneobsession and join the conversation using #LiveYours
