Create a 3-SOME
Fitzroy Amsterdam has developed a very bold new campaign for the new Doritos flavour: Sensational Salsa. It gives young people the chance to invite two complete strangers to form a threesome with them. Aptly named Skip or Trip! If these two strangers do not respond within 9 hours, they will be stuck with each other. Creating the chance that you will be going on a Late Night Triangle Trip to Moscow, Istanbul and Berlin, to experience the nightlife each city has to offer.

Meet the super humans

Wow. Or maybe, ouch. This TVC by Channel 4 to promote its coverage of the Paralympic Games might hit it like a punch in the stomach. It will give you goosebumps. I quote Slate Magazine that says it’s the most amazing Olympic video you’ll ever see. Must watch. Must share.

A coin to stop the seal killers

Another very nice “offline interactive” idea made in Germany to raise awareness on the stupid and cruel seals killing happening around the world in countries like Canada, Russia and Norway just to name a few. Every year almost a million seals are killed for their pelts, their fat and their flesh. A huge number that gets even more awful if you think how cruelly the animals are killed (using a firearm!).

A billboard was installed encouraging people to use their small change to make seal hunters disappears. Citizens walking by the installation were prompted to throw the coins to the wall enabled by hundreds of magnets until the image of the killer was completely covered and disappeared from the sight. What a great way to have people interact for a few minutes with the campaign message. Love it.
