Many of you may have seen Captain Manchester prancing around the city, performing good deeds wherever he goes. As part of a brilliant campaign, we’ve brought the friendly Captain out into the world once again to spread joy to all those who need it.
Not quite sure who Captain Manchester is? Or just confused overall about what the campaign is about? Tunafish Media, a marketing agency in Manchester, is here to break it down.
Who Is Captain Manchester?
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well, it’s not Captain Manchester, because he can’t fly. But he sure is helpful! Captain Manchester is our local superhero that’s looking to make everyone’s day. As a previous marketing campaign in 2013 for Forever Manchester, Captain Manchester was born!
When the campaign originated, an anonymous man dressed as the Captain appeared around the city, helping people with paying for their parking tickets or buying their food for them whilst documenting it on his social media. He even put up balloons across Manchester just to put a smile on all of our faces! After the campaign had ended, it came out that a marketing agency in Manchester was behind it all… that’s right, Tunafish Media (ourselves) and Forever Manchester were the not-so-evil masterminds behind the entire thing!
Present Day Captain Manchester
Back to the present day, where Captain Manchester has dug up his costume, gave it a good iron and is off out onto the streets of Manchester doing all sorts of good deeds once again. This time, we’re teaming up with 40+ companies that are based in and around Manchester and lending them the Captain Manchester outfit so they can spread the joy!
Throughout May, you will see various Captains’ running around the city, getting up to all sorts of non-mischief and putting a smile on someone’s face for the day. All this excitement is for a wonderful charity, Forever Manchester, and will help them reach out to the local community and help them gain a new audience throughout the month.
Who is Forever Manchester?
