You're The Worst Social Campaign

Entered in Humor

About this entry

Breakups? The worst. Or maybe the best? With social leading the charge, FXX focused on humor to promote the season 4 premiere of the hit comedy series, You're the Worst. The goal was to make fans laugh with custom content and even encourage them to share their own ridiculous breakup stories on social.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Using custom humorous illustrations, graphics and footage captured directly with cast, an array of uniquely hysterical assets, and well…baby turtles, FXX created a humorous social campaign for season 4 that spoke directly to the fans. To round out a funny social campaign, FXX created a social media holiday, "Day of the Dumped," a dedicated microsite, and even a Facebook live re-enactment of popular You're the Worst Scenes using baby turtles.


Engagement on social platforms was high leading into the premiere and continued throughout the season. The Facebook live baby turtle event garnered over 106k views. The humorous social campaign garnered over 349k content responses. Fans continued to laugh and share their positive reactions throughout the social media channels.
