100 Candles for Neiman Marcus

Neiman Marcus is promoting its 100th anniversary via a video on YouTube. Neiman executives told Ad Age it’s an unorthodox move, but they think there’s a place for their luxury brand on the video-sharing site.
“Like with anything, you hear people in meetings say, ‘Did you see the thing on YouTube?'” said Ginger Reeder, VP-corporate communications at the Dallas-based retailer. “And if it starts to permeate our consciousness, we can only assume it’s in our customers’ as well.”
Buying the home page on YouTube for a day generally costs about $250,000, according to media-buying executives familiar with the pricing.
