Huggies Wrote a Song Praising Babies' Bottoms
Huggies diapers have curves to better fit babies of all shapes and sizes. What better way to show some love than with a catchy tune?
There's smushy, cushy, mushy and tushy butts for starters. Extra props for working mostaccioli into "Baby Butt Bop." Quality Meats crafted the earworm and accompanying TV spots.
"We wanted to make a fun, quirky dance-styled song to highlight a variety of different shapes of butt, and associate each with some sort of active moment," says Quality Meats co-CCO and co-founder Brian Siedband. "And in general be as specific as possible with interesting details and actions. Inspiration-wise, we liked the repetitive nature of 2010s hip hop but wanted to lean into a vibe that was less 'cool' and more fun and weird. Which morphed into a funky Euro-ish electronic kinda thing."
Videos feature snippets of the song as babies play, run around and make messes.
"We knew were onto something with this track because we couldn't get it out of our heads, and not in an annoying way but in a good way where we just wanted to keep listening to it and singing it ourselves," Gordy Sang, also an agency co-CCO and co-founder, tells Muse. "And we noticed it had the same effect on everyone else we forced to listen to it, including our families. There's something magical about it, maybe the way he says 'butt?'"
