Levi’s® premieres GO FORTH and social challenge on Facebook
The Levi’s® brand today premiered “Levi’s® Legacy,” its first-ever global ‘Go Forth’ advertising spot, and unveiled a digital engagement program celebrating pioneers around the globe. Launching exclusively on Facebook, the 60-second film and digital program tap into the power of the interconnected global community to spark change and create positive action unrestricted by geographic barriers.
The premiere of “Levi’s® Legacy” will reach nearly 325 million people worldwide on Facebook before appearing on movie screens and TV around the globe mid August. Through Facebook and Levi.com, Levi’s® fans and viewers will be encouraged to support the spirit and influence of today’s modern pioneers who are working to create a better world.
Filmed by Berlin-based director Ralf Schmerberg, the 60-second film titled “Levi’s® Legacy” is an emotional journey into the lives of young people expressing their hopes and dreams for a better world in meaningful ways. Featuring the poem “The Laughing Heart,” by Charles Bukowski, the film delivers a message of hope and empowerment that underscores the theme “Now Is Our Time”. The film closes with the Levi’s® brand’s ultimate call to action: ‘Go Forth.’
The integrated global ‘Go Forth’ campaign will appear in 24 countries and 19 languages and act as a rally cry to create positive change in the world today. The creative campaign was developed by Wieden+Kennedy and marks the first time the Levi’s® brand has delivered a singular creative platform to a global audience.

Through Facebook, people can pledge their support for the cause and share their intentions with friends around the world. Levi’s® goal is to reach 100.000 pledges on Facebook – and reaching this goal will help bring clean water to up to 8,000 people – for life.
Shining a global spotlight on the work of Water.org is a continuation of the long-standing commitment of the Levi’s® brand to raise awareness for global water issues and reduce wasteful water usage. As part of this commitment, the Levi’s® brand recently introduced Water
