Interlex Introduces “Oso Generoso” Campaign for Travelodge Hotels in the Hispanic Market


July 21, 2006

This summer Hispanic families may have been surprised to see a giant teddy bear leaping across billboards and dancing on their TV screens. The venerable if updated icon was Travelodge Hotels’ “Sleepy the Bear.” Charged with spreading Travelodge’s family-friendly appeal to the Hispanic market, Interlex implemented its Multicultural Transcreation approach to the challenge. Rather than literally translating Sleepy’s name, the agency nicknamed him “El Oso Generoso,” which means “The Generous Bear” in a sing-song rhyme. The multimedia campaign generated considerable brand lift and increased Hispanic room nights by over 20%, successfully positioning the Travelodge brand as a clean, reliable, safe and family-friendly place to rest after a long day of fun in the sun and highway driving. As part the campaign, Interlex also developed the Spanish-language brand: “Travelodge. Juega bien. Duerme mejor.”READ MORE
