Heart or Humor
Logitech today announced the launch of a brand campaign, DEFY LOGIC, featuring creators, artists, and activists who are defying expectations and breaking barriers to inspire and change the world. The centerpiece of the new campaign is an ad that will air during the 2021 Super Bowl, featuring GRAMMY-award winning rapper and songwriter Lil Nas X and his upcoming song “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).”
“DEFY LOGIC celebrates people pursuing their passions and breaking new ground, despite what current conventions, past precedent or traditional thinking might suggest is possible,” said Heidi Arkinstall, chief marketing officer at Logitech. “By spotlighting the stories of these extraordinary individuals, and on such a major stage, Logitech hopes to support new generations of creators, artists, and activists ready to do amazing things that defy logic.”
The creative is documentary-style, with the game-day spot featuring vignettes highlighting diverse individuals pushing boundaries in creative innovation, sustainability and equality—and how Logitech products help enable them on their journey. The Lil Nas X spotlight shares his creative process, including writing a song, recording in the studio, and engaging with his fans on social media. His feature in the campaign kicks off a multifaceted partnership between Logitech and Lil Nas X, using his logic-defying story to inspire and empower other young creators like him to share their passions.

In addition to Lil Nas X, the campaign features visual artists YesYesNo (Zach Lieberman and MolMol Kuo), light artists NONOTAK (Noemi Schipfer and Takami Nakamotol), graphic designer and illustrator Mercedes Bazan, makeup artist Kimberley Margarita, musician Yvette Young, and variety streamer Meg Kaylee. The campaign also highlights change-makers in sustainability, diversity and equality, including gender equality advocate and founder of EnrichHER, Dr. Roshawnna Novellus; Intersectional Environmentalist founder Leah Thomas; education activist Melz Owusu; and teenage climate activists and Kids Against Plastic founders Amy and Ella Meek.
