This isn’t exactly as advert, but it’s one that could definitely have worked well if he had worked together with a charity like Missing People, or the American equivalent. User fouseyTUBE on Youtube created this video to house an experiment that would test the public to see if they would intervene in a kidnapping. It’s sad that this happens and children go missing like this a lot, and you could stop it just by helping and questioning more.
Here’s a bit of good human kindness to start your weekend off. The film is made to raise awareness of the situation for children in Syria, and to raise funds to SOS Children’s Villages is their winter-campaign. Children in Syria are freezing and you can help by donating a coat. They placed Johannes, a young boy in an obviously freezing bus stop in Norway, in a thin jumper and tested people waiting in the bus stop to see if they would help him. It’s very heart warming when you see them take their big coats off to give to him, leaving themselves in t-shirts mostly. Hope you all have a good weekend!
Just turn the captions on at the bottom of the video player to see the English subtitles!
Would you give your coat?
I’ll admit, I don’t watch Game of Thrones, so I have no idea what part of the show this is from but I am told it’s for the Season 3 DVD release of the show. Measuring 10 metres by 7.5 metres it was installed on London’s Liverpool Street encouraged people to interact with the art, and “scale” the wall, being only open to allow this for 6 hours of the one day it was installed. In a first for these kind of 3D street art adverts it works at more than one angle, which is pretty special as you can only see others full glory from one angle.
Other examples of 3D Street Advertisements are in my four part collection here:
“This year Valentine’s Day will be the most romantic ever! We placed 1500 ‘In Case of Love’ emergency cases carrying a beautiful red rose throughout Paris in crowded, and well-known romantic areas. In case you meet your love at first sight, it’s easy to make it known. Just break the glass and take the flower. The only thing you have to do yourself is to declare your love.”
Just a nice, simple offline guerrilla execution for an online business, I’m liking!
Happy Valentines! I’m posting this really late on Friday so it still counts! Otherwise this would have been scheduled for Monday! I saw this on the off chance on one of those “Skip Ad” Youtube ads, probably the first one I didn’t skip! Wilkinson Sword created a kind of billboard, in a town centre, of a giant picture of a man’s mouth. With sticks stuck out for “stubble”. It’s an advert for Valentine’s, so what do you think the sticks are when you pull one off? Roses! A nice bit of creative Valentine’s advertising from Wilkinson Sword here, I am liking a lot!
Another brilliant prank installation from The Walking Dead team. They do some great creative work with their zombies to produce some cool advertisements. This one features one of the well known New York grates in the floor, this time altered and filled with zombies! Primed and ready to stick their hands out to grab innocent passers by
