Teenage Dream

As tumultuous news pushed youth gun violence to the sidelines, Sandy Hook Promise knew they needed to evoke deep emotions to break through. We juxtaposed a pop-cultural embodiment of our collective youthful ideal – Katy Perry’s #1 hit “Teenage Dream” – with the real-life experiences of school shooting survivors, exposing the huge gap between our idealization of high school and the reality students face today. With no paid media, we gained broad exposure, broke through, shifted opinions, and drove action across the cultural spectrum.

Without relying on a mass shooting or a body count, Shock Market weaponized gun violence data to generate enough earned media and social conversation pressure to demand accountability from the one person who could leverage his executive power to take action. And a little over a month and 2.49B earned media impressions later, he actually did.
