The campaign was conducted across different media, including TV, cinema, outdoor display, digital and the web and was seen by millions of consumers. 83% of adults saw the TV ad an average of seven times. Over 10 million people saw the cinema ad.

In August 2011, LG began trade advertising (both print & digital) to communicate the arrival of LG 6 Motion, and produced a mailshot with training information about '6 Motion', a mini-disk with images and information about the '6 Motion' range of washing machines. LG's '6 Motion' consumer advertising campaign commenced in September 2011 and it included London Fashion Week sponsorship, TV advertising, press and digital advertising.
