What would be the best way for competition to react to such an internationally successful advertising campaign?

As the campaign is generally for self- improvement rather than friendships or concerns for others. 4. Describe how the Nonunion Walker brand has achieved serialization through the Keep Walking campaign.
Nonunion Walker has used the three key things that all iconic brands have in common tame, resonance and adoption) to appeal to all of their market. They have also applied values that are applicable to all males across the globe and based their campaign on the growing trend of becoming a better man.
