Specsaver goal line technology ad

Whilst on holiday last week, I was reading the British tabloids (which is comically expensive to buy in Cyprus) after Englands horrific display at the world cup in South Africa leading to an early flight home for the team and stumbled across this after the Germany game which nearly made me fall off my chair with laughter….

This was 2 days after the whole Lampard / over the line / how was that not allowed / wouldn’t have a difference incident. The timing could not have been better and for me it is spot on!

The speedy turnaround is thanks to it being created by the Specsaver in house creative team who were also responsible for the equally brilliant Lynx spoof ad.

MINI vs Porsche – BRING IT

Very clever campaign by Californian  ad agency Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners for MINI.

MINI U.S. President challenges President and CEO of Porsche cars North America to a race!

Now, if the challenge is accepted, we all have it in our mind who has the quicker car but even when (or we might be surprised, IF) MINI lose this is going to generate huge media and social interest.

And in my mind it’s so perfect for the MINI brand.

Well done BSSP

Heineken Champions League prank!

A truly geeeenius piece of buzz marketing done for Heineken by JWT Italia (well beyondM25).

They got 200+ football lovers partners/lecturers/bosses to convince their man to reluctantly go to a classical music concert on the same night that the AC Milan vs Real Madrid champions league match was live on Sky Sports, one of the biggest clashes you can find in football.

Once the concert started words start appearing on the screen behind the performers and it soon becomes clear that they have been pranked and then they start to show the match cementing the message that Heineken are ‘made to entertain’

In the days following, the stunt was tweeted, blogged and covered in the news (TV and Print) all over the world – Brilliantly clever!
