According to global shopping service, Klarna, only 9% of surveyed shoppers find online shopping ‘fun.’ To help change that, Klarna is continuing its “Swedish for smooother shopping” US launch campaign with a uniquely-targeted, shoppable entertainment/interactive experience.

Klarna’s “48 Hour Smoooth Room”, a first-of-its-kind digital pop-up gives shoppers a chance to explore, and win, some of the Internet’s most coveted items – straight from the brand’s own advertising. For 48 Hours only from 12pm EST on 7/16 to 12pm EST on 7/18 People can shop-and-win the items before the timer hits 0:00. The 48 Hour Smoooth Room website can be accessed directly here.

The 48 Hour Smoooth Room continues “Swedish for Smoother Shopping,” Klarna’s recently launched 360-degree integrated brand campaign, created with agency Mirimar. The room will be discoverable via a series of hyper-targeted digital ads that will run for 48 hours only. The digital ads are shoppable films, released all at once, shamelessly leverage one piece of Swedish film that’s been rewritten into fifteen unique shoppable films, each targeting a specific consumer interest – from fashion, gaming, sneakers, to beauty and aquarium hobbyists – and highlight the unique item available to scoop up.

From the films, consumers are led directly to the disappearing digital room, available on desktop and mobile, where they can ‘shop’ (i.e. win) a series of prizes including a Sonos Speaker set ($1,500), a Dyson Airwap Styler ($550), an Anine Bing fanny pack ($499) and a Fender Squier in Pink ($400).

The “Klarna: Swedish for Smooother Shopping” campaign, leans into the company’s Swedish origins to introduce Americans to the revolutionary online shopping service.
