The teens of Laguna Beach follow in the footsteps of Hollywood's recently "Ex-It" couple, Nicole Richie and DJ AM, who starred in the brand's past campaign. The campaign will feature both womens and mens products. The Company recently launched its mens collection of jeans, tops and footwear.

Dari Marder, Creative Director, BONGO, commented, "The Bongo demographic is the MTV viewer, so we could not think of a better way to reach our consumer. The concept behind the campaign is a party. So we rented an amazing mansion on PCH in Santa Monica, hired an Orange County band, 'The Colour' and let the gang do what came naturally. Alex, Jason, Lauren, Stephan, Kristin and Tallan had a blast on set and it comes through in the campaign. Alex who has an album coming out this spring got on stage with the band and sang, while the boys got a little carried away by pushing each other in the pool."

The campaign was shot by celebrity photographer Roxanne Lowitt and was created by the Iconix in-house marketing and creative team. The ads feature Bongo Spring '06 products that will be available in department and specialty stores nationwide this Spring. The campaign will also be featured on the internet and in-store. Alex, Jason, Lauren, Stephan, Kristin and Tallan will also make public appearances on behalf of the brand.
