Beats by Dr Dre: Meet the Pills
To stand out in a crowded wireless speaker market, Beats by Dr. Dre invented The Beats Pills: tiny, trash-talking characters with big personalities and even bigger mouths.
Brought to life with animation from Framestore and voiced by Chris Rock, Eminem, Tichina Arnold and Mike Skinner. From Miley’s 'Wrecking Ball' to Pharell’s ‘Happy' music video, The Pills would provide outspoken comment on every important moment in Pop Culture. Most notable at the VMAs with a world's first responsive TV commercial where the characters commented on Miley Cyrus and Robin Thick’s explosive live performance.
Through the tagline, Small But Loud, Beats discovered a powerful voice that resonated deeply with their audience. By November that year, Pills sales were number one in the wireless speaker category, and the Pills became the must-have holiday gift of the year.
