D Love is the diminutive new star of a fully integrated campaign which launches across BBC TV, BBC Radio, commercial radio, online and in store on 17 November to highlight the benefits of digital radio.
He is a 15-inch tall, smooth dressing soul puppet, from Stockport - although in his mind that’s just outside Detroit. Think of him as somewhere between Lionel Richie, Isaac Hayes and a Thunderbird puppet.
The TV ads depict the diminutive soul man spreading the love for digital radio with his pet dove and encouraging others to join the movement. He is always accompanied by his faithful pet dove, played by a real life pigeon that had been reared around the puppet since it was a chick.
The campaign will also feature a music video starring D Love, interviews with his dove, posters, online banners, in store, digital radio guides, and radio ads which will be aired across the BBC Radio network and on over 60 commercial radio stations. He will be interviewed by BBC Radio DJ’s Fearne Cotton, Richard Bacon, Suzie Klein and Clive Anderson as part of his launch. Read Less
