Ad of the Week: McCann Montevideo ‘I CANN Eau de Créativité’ (Uruguay)

Icann 1

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of McCann Montevideo, the agency has launched a limited-edition perfume called ‘I CANN Eau de Créativité’ that symbolises its commitment to creativity.

With the purpose of making it a medium to boost creativity, the idea was developed based on the idea that McCann’s role is to encourage creativity among clients and in their brand development, therefore it wanted to create a product that would boost creativity among its own people.

The thinking behind the name ‘I CANN’ emphasises that everybody can develop and express the power of their own creativity, and a campaign to promote it has been starred by agency staff.

Innovative Ad of the Week: Sony Pictures ‘Ghostbusters Waterloo’ (UK)

Ghosbusters main

This week brings to an end a pretty spooky burst of outdoor activity for London commuters, who were surprised and delighted by a giant sculpture of the iconic Stay Puft Marshmallow Man at Waterloo, as part of a complete train station takeover by Sony Pictures to promote the new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie.

The ‘super-sized’ out-of-home campaign, a collaboration between Sony Pictures, JCDecaux (campaign concept), Feref (creative), MGOMD and Talon (media), played up the idea of ‘something strange in your neighbourhood’ by transforming London’s Waterloo Station into a film-themed showcase for the past two weeks.

Innovative Ad of the Week: Entertainment One 'The BFG Dream Jar Trail' (UK)

Bfg

To promote the upcoming movie remake of Roald Dahl's 'The BFG', Entertainment One has launched a experiential campaign which uses Google's Nearby Notifications beacon technology to bring six-foot "dream jars" to life. 

A total of 50 "dream jars" have been dotted around London in an initiative which plays on the concept that the BFG bottles dreams and blows them into childrens' bedrooms. The six-foot jars contain the childhood dreams of a range of celebrities including film director Steven Spielberg and actor Mark Rylance. 

Adding a new layer to the campaign through the help of Zenith by using Google's beacon tech, which launched last month, Android users (with Bluetooth switched on) that pass by one of the activations are notified that they are in close proximity (within 15 metres) to one of the real-life jars. If a user clicks through, they are given more information about the jars, the installation and the film. IPhone users can access the same content through Google Maps or Google Now.

Ad of the Week: Tiger Beer 'Made in Asia' (USA)

Tiger beer

For its US launch, Tiger Beer went back to its Asian roots by repurposing a New York discount store into a pop-up showroom displaying more than 700 products showcasing the finest art, fashion, technology and design from artists in the region.  

The idea aimed to celebrate the true craft and creativity of the brand's origins, in contrast to the cheaply made Asian cliches and counterfeit goods that would usually populate New York's Canal Street stores.  

Members of the public could gain entry to the store simply by presenting a Tiger Beer coaster from one of several nearby bars.

Innovative Ad of the Week: Bombay Sapphire ‘Free the Spirit’ (Germany)

Bombay 1

BBDO Düsseldorf has put the spotlight on Bombay Sapphire with the world’s first holographic message in a bottle – a new innovation that lets the Spirit speak for itself.

With more and more gin brands entering the market, it’s getting harder for brands to stay visible and stay on top of barkeepers’ minds, said the agency. As such, it has cast the spotlight on the Bombay Sapphire to engage the gatekeepers to its consumers – the barkeepers – with a limited edition pack that carries a holographic message in a bottle.

OOH Ad of the Week: Naked Juice 'Pollution-eating giant poster' (UK)

Naked Juice and blowUP media have teamed up to install a ground-breaking  pollution-eating Giant Poster in the heart of London, promoting Naked’s healthy juices to millennials in an environmentally healthy way. 

The ad showcases not only one of its fruit smoothies but at the same time how it is doing good to clean-up the air pollution surrounding the poster. The ad was treated with PURETi, a photocatalyst that reacts with natural UV light to eat pollution, which not only enables the poster to clean the air around it but also keeps it cleaner. 

The campaign was planned and bought by OMD UK and specialist agency Talon.

Ambient Ad of the Week: PETA 'Behind the Leather' (Thailand)

In the charity sector, many approaches are taken in order to get a hard-hitting message across. The latest effort from PETA Asia is something quite extraordinary. 

Working with Ogilvy & Mather, PETA set up a pop-up store in one of Thailand's hippest shopping centres. The twist? Shoppers were shocked to find a little more than they bargained for when browsing the latest exotic-skins bags, belts, jackets, gloves and shoes...

OOH Ad of the Week: Ekstra Bladet ‘The News Fridge’ (Denmark)

News fridge

How do you generate hot sales at 5 degrees Celsius?

Well, that’s a good question to ask the guys at Ogilvy Denmark as the agency’s latest execution for Danish tabloid newspaper Ekstra Bladet took a fresh approach to flogging newspaper copies, resulting in a 30% increase in sales.

With the rapid uptake of online and mobile news consumption, selling print newspapers is never an easy job – these days people find printed news old and outdated. But Ekstra Bladet claims to be the first for breaking news in Denmark. So how could it prove that?
