RuPaul’s Drag Race fans were watching the show illicitly online. We needed to alert them it was coming to British broadcast TV - without a budget for a major campaign.

“A Whole New Ru”, re-imagining the show as a self-help guide for the Ru - sorry, New - Year, through fan-friendly content steeped in the show’s culture. Including a workout video, fake wearable tech product, guided meditation (yep), a real phone-in chat line, and a whole lotta GIFs.
WHAT THE F**K THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO I HAVE EVER WATCHED
