Kevin Bacon Evokes iPhone Envy for EE’s Apple iPhone 12 Pro Launch 

Campaign from EE’s advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi sees Kevin Bacon admiring his brand-new iPhone as Doug, who is not yet on EE, looks on enviously

Kevin Bacon Evokes iPhone Envy for EE’s Apple iPhone 12 Pro Launch 

Kevin Bacon has returned in the latest EE brand campaign which celebrates the launch of the new Apple iPhone 12 Pro, available on EE’s award-winning 5G network. The campaign puts the new handset in the limelight and highlights the benefits customers can receive, reminding viewers why EE is crowned the UK’s number one network year after year. 

The nationwide campaign launched on 23rd October on ITV.com and, this week, highlights of the 30-second TV advert include Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off and Channel 4’s Gogglebox.

Directed by RadicalMedia's Steve Miller, the advert opens with Kevin Bacon sitting in a café, admiring his brand-new iPhone 12 Pro in all its glory. As he continues to marvel at his new handset, passer-by Doug gazes through the café window in awe, as viewers hear his internal monologue murmur, ‘That network’.

As the music continues, the camera focuses on the unmistakable EE 5G emblazoned bag and Kevin, as he adoringly admires the handset’s beautiful design and unparalleled new camera, highlighting that the latest iPhone is available on EE’s Full Works Plan made for iPhone.

As Doug continues to look on enviously, a tear comes to Kevin’s eye as he says, “There is nothing left to want”. In response, viewers again hear Doug’s internal monologue as he thinks, “And nothing I want more.” As Kevin gazes into the distance, he poses the question, “Will life ever taste this sweet again?”.

With the inspiring music reaching its peak, Doug is transfixed on Kevin and his new handset, reaching out to place a hand on the window, we hear his pained internal monologue say, “That could be you, Doug!” Kevin, spotting the envious look on Doug’s face, advises viewers to “Get the new iPhone 12 Pro with 5G on EE, and be the envy of everyone”. 

Pete Jeavons, marketing communications director at BT and EE comments: “As the UK’s number one network for 5G, EE is the obvious choice for customers who want to get their hands on the Apple iPhone 12 Pro. Offering a powerful 5G experience, and tailored plans made for iPhone 12, EE customers can benefit from an enviable entertainment and network experience on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.”

EE continues to drive digitally integrated campaigns through its ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi with a focus on social across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, as well as other video display partners. This campaign will run across TV, out of home (OOH), and video on demand (VOD) – with edits and content developed specifically for a range of digital and social channels. 

Customers taking out iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro on an exclusive new EE Full Works Plan for iPhone between 16th October 2020 to 15th January 2021 will enjoy 24 months of the BT Sport App, with new Match Day Experience features, as part of their plan. EE Full Works customers also receive access to Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, as well as uncapped and unlimited mobile data.
