Amazon - Truck Ads
When it came to love, it seems Alexa had a lot to learn. In fact, for a long time, their answer was rather…inhuman. So Amazon ads partnered with the Ad Council and their “Love Has No Labels” campaign to remind people that love has the ability to overcome bias, discrimination and hate.
Amazon updated Alex’s response to the question “What is love?” by recording real people’s answers and using a selection of them to inspire millions more.
To promote the campaign, Amazon partnered to Movia for truck side ads to help carry the message of acceptance and inclusion to thousands of people in 5 markets across the southeastern US – Nashville, Tampa, Charlotte, Atlanta and Dallas. For the Fall of 2022, ten trucks, 2 per market, are taking to the streets with ads displaying compelling images of 6 of the people whose answers were featured in the update, and the simple, very familiar line, “Alexa, What is love?”
As the results came in, we were sure of one thing… the impact was measured in more than just reach and impressions, but in the minds and hearts opened to reconsider the answer to this very meaningful question.
And in true fairytale fashion, one of the drivers meeting the woman of his dreams because of the campaign. She was super impressed with how open-minded he is. We’ll let you know how it goes and if there are wedding bells in the future!

About the Company
Every day thousands of people engage with Alexa about love; in fact, in India, people said, “I Love You” to Alexa 19,000 times a day in 2020. But when asked about love, Alexa’s response was an AI-centric, “Sorry, I don’t have human love figured out quite yet.” With this campaign, we’ve evolved Alexa’s response to better represent a diverse world. We handed the mic to eight Amazon customers representing diverse backgrounds and asked them what love means to them. We captured audio and film of each individual answering the question and produced the Alexa responses you hear along with a 0:30 second TV spot and 2:00 minute short film.
