  2. 2. 2 TO DRIP WITH KINDNESS The brewery Ponysaurus Brewing Co. vowed to spread the spirit of Christmas in Durham, a city in North Carolina. With the help of Baldwin&, the brand created a machine that measures the spirit of Christmas. Thanks to key words the invention counts the number of nice and bad tweets in the city. When the limit is reached, the tap of the draft-beer system opens during 3 min allowing people to be served. After that, the tap closes until there is a new wave of kindness. This original campaign creates a link between the off- line and the online trough Twitter. It is a smart way too for the brand to differentiate itself from its competitors in an humorous way.

  3. 3. 3 FOOD FOR CLOTHES You love pizza? In US, Pizza Hut had the idea to create "Hut Swag", a whole range of clothes. There are t-shirts, sunglasses, scarfs and even socks. Everyone can find there what it likes. This original clothing line is commercialized in an online store. This line was created in order to extend the brand's presence and to target young people.

  4. 4. 4 A RISKY FRIENDSHIP Samsung, in order to make the promotion of its new Galaxy S6+, created a friendship test. This test was based on an experience of the professor Dunbar. He explained in the nineties that everybody has only 5 true friends. That is why, the brand organized 5 scripts, all with a bad ending. For each situation, Samsung asked you which person you would have called. We all know that the friends we have on Facebook are not really our friends but we don't always know on which person we can rely on. Thanks to this experience, Samsung can reveal who are our true friends and illustrates too its new function: a smartphone with 5 contacts beforehand recorded.

  5. 5. 5 NO MORE FLYING CARPET Recently, in US, the start-up ARCA created ArcaBoard, a concept of hoverboard. This machine is able to levitate on any surface. Thanks to 36 ventilators, you can fly up to 30 meters above the ground, for a maximal speed of 20km/hour but only during approximately 6 min. In terms of design, the hoverboard looks like a large board. The fans of Back to the future will be thrilled. In deed, this creative idea mix efficiency, technology and design.

  7. 7. 7 NATURE, THE PARADISE FOR URBANS In England, Center Parcs makes the promotion of its brand for, the first time, with animals. All the story is developed around a family of bears whose everyday life is very boring: subway-work-sleep. What brings back happiness to this family is nature. They simply enjoy to spend time together. This campaign is very different from the other campaigns of the brand. This one is more poetic. We clearly see, that the brand wants to target urban families who need to disconnect from their routine. Disconnection is a trend that grows everyday….

  12. 12. 12 TO PLAY WITH TOURISM Tourism campaigns are always the same. That is why, the Melbourne Tourist Office organized a funny game called "Play Melbourne". The system was very simple: a smartphone was placed in the center of a ball built for the occasion. The smartphone was connected to Periscope. The objective of the game was that all Melbournians pass the ball among themselves in order that cybernauts discover the beauty of the city. This playful operation shows the benefit of Periscope and is also a smart way to tempt tourists to go to Melbourne. The cherry on the cake is the interactivity of this action.

  13. 13. 13 YOUR HEART BEATS FOR WATER In Brazil, with the help of students from Miami Ad School, the brand imagined a fountain of Powerade.

This is a clever operation because it strengthens the positioning of the brand around sport. It increases too the notoriety of the brand.

That is why, the only man who goes out of the bar with a girl, is the one, who drank least during the evening. This brand advocates a moderate consumption of alcohol because most of the 18-35 consume it more and more moderately. This campaign is smart too because its positioned Heineken as an elegant product and an asset to seduce women.
