Ambient or Guerilla ads

 

WWF - Target practice - ambient, China


Located in the Bejing Fang Zhuang underground passage were these special WWF posters, that turned an innocent walkway into human target practice.
Over 9000 people walk through this passage every day, and the campaign was so succesful that the hallway was literally jammed with people as the gunshots echoed through the hall. AD agency: Ogilvy, Bejing.

Anything & Whatever soft drinks - Vending machines


JWT Sydney had the fun job to design the vending machines for “Anything” & “Whatever” soft drinks. The cans of these drinks may looks the same but on the inside there's six different flavours - so you never know what you are going to get. The client wanted JWT Sydney to do something that would bring this point home - the result, funny vending machines.

People Opposing Woman Abuse, POWA


Every 26 seconds a woman is raped in south africa which is a mindnumbingly depressing number, made even worse when you realize that children are rape victims as well but not included in the 26 seconds statistic.

TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris Johannesburg placed these paper towel dispensers in every club that had 1500 or more people attending. It may look like a regular towel dispenser at first, but when you yank and 'violently' pull the towel out - a skirt appears on it asking "what have you done?" Sure, this accuses practically every man out there for being a rapist, but to change perceptions POWA wants every south african male to consider their own actions.

The men who saw these ads weren't offended, in fact after their initial campaign burst, popular 5FM Dj Gareth Cliff gave the idea praise - he had seen the ad as he happened to perform at a club where the ad was placed.

Drive Agency for St. Louis Symphony

Using massive stencils and some spray chalk, crosswalks all over the city were transformed into sheet music to promote upcoming concerts and attract a new, younger demographic.

Drive Agency is a full-service advertising agency in downtown St. Louis, MO, specializing in non-traditional advertising. At night, it's St. Louis' only commission-free art gallery that supports local and national artists.
