We love a bit inovation in out of home. And just when you think you've seen it all, the University of Technology and Engineering (UETC) surprised us with a fantastic example of utility marketing using the outdoor medium. With the help of BPN and Clear Channel, families in Peru were given access to potable water through... wait for it... yes, a billboard.

Very few individuals experience the thrill of driving a powerful
5.0 litre supercharged engine, or even just hearing the dominating roar such an
engine provides, yet Land Rover has innovatively allowed travellers to
familiarise themselves with this through its latest campaign, ‘Push the pedal
hear the engine’.
Moving away from laborious, tedious advertising, Land Rover built
a special digital outdoor campaign to publicise its all-new Range Rover Sport,
featuring an accelerator pedal, responsive interactive content and directional
sound. ‘Push the pedal, hear the engine’ delivered the speed and thrill of the
SUV’s powerful engine to travellers at Gatwick, Manchester and Stansted
Airports over a four week period.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? For me, it is without a doubt the ability to fly. (Imagine being able to avoid morning rush hour!) So imagine my surprise when I saw the latest instalment of Pepsi Max's #Livefornow campaign. In just 2 days, the video has racked up nearly one million YouTube video views. It may not quite be Red Bull Stratos, but the idea is the same. The stunt has got everyone talking, so for Pepsi Max, it's gold dust!

Now I’m not the biggest football fan. But I’m a girl, so
that’s a given. For men, I can only imagine that to have your name chanted by a
packed stadium of adoring football fans is an experience that every guy can
only dream of. That’s why when I came across this new campaign from Nivea Men,
I thought it was definitely one to share!

Fans frustrated with the 34-minute power
outage at the Super Bowl in New Orleans were flooded with innovative
advertising messages to keep their interest going during the blackout. Chief
amongst these brands was Oreo, which stole the show with a tweet-cum-ad - while
players milled about on the fields in darkness, the brand created an image of
an Oreo set in light, shadow and darkness. The ad pointed thousands of
followers to the line below the image that went: ‘You can still dunk in the

Many have hailed augmented reality (AR) as a passing fad
with no real beneficial use bar novelty value. This however comes as a surprise
to marketers who see AR as a vital tool to generate brand excitement and
believe it will become a mainstream technology in the near distance future.
To financially ailing industries such as music and
publishing, this couldn’t come at a better time. By incorporating AR technology
they will once again be able to provide the customer with desirable extras
they’d struggle to find elsewhere. Already, AR technology can allow readers to
hold their phone in front of a printed page and see extra content on their
handset. The opportunities are endless and we just need to look to huge brands
such as Nokia and Google to understand the full potential the medium offers.

When we talk about how digital marketing
channels have evolved in recent years, often we refer to the take off of social

slightly overlooked – that has benefitted hugely from the technological advancements
that digital has to offer. Out of home media has undergone something of a
digital revolution of late – and I’m talking far beyond the digital six sheets
that now frequently grace our west-end underground stations.
