Innovative Ad of the Week: Sodimac ‘Hijacked Highway’ (Peru)

Sodimac

Peru’s largest home improvement chain Sodimac has partnered with McCann Lima to create the biggest VR experience ever produced in the country. The “Hijacked Highway” is a 360-degree virtual-reality experience that allows co-pilots and passengers in selected cars to ride along the Panamericana Sur with a unique point of view.

More than 40,000 VR cardboard glasses were distributed along the highway tolls stops, allowing auto passengers to see 20+ real life home improvement offers that virtually replace the billboards.

The VR initiative intervenes in specific spots throughout the Panamericana Sur, replacing the traditional billboards and visual clutter that drivers have to endure. The experience presents 3D animated images of Sodimac’s main summer offerings in funny and surprising forms - the underlying idea being to show consumers that Sodimac is an expert when it comes to transforming and enhancing any space.

Innovative Ad of the Week: Mazda ‘The Head Turning Billboard’ (Canada)

Mazda

The new Mazda MX-5 RF is a real head turner. Well, at least that’s what a new OOH campaign from JWT set out to prove…

With an objective to create something as innovative and engaging as the vehicle itself, the agency hand-picked a high-traffic video wall in the heart of the financial district and opted for a simple headline, supported by a counter that keeps track of all heads that turned to look at the billboard.

Could Yahoo’s new “smart” billboard transform OOH advertising?

Yahoo pic

Yahoo has filed a patent for a new type of “smart” digital billboard that could potentially transform the OOH industry by taking data collection via the medium to a whole new level.  

Remember that scene in Minority Report where Tom Cruise walks through the shopping centre and gets bombarded with advertising? It’s sort of like that, but maybe not quite to the same level…

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.

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.

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?
