Allan Gray Investments - Patience Puzzle - Billboard, South Africa

Allan Gray Investments and King James Advertising Cape Town created this puzzle-billboard that took four weeks to reveal the sender. Placed next to a busy commuter road, each day for four weeks a little bit more of the headline was revealed. After four weeks you could read "Purpose is nothing without patience" and the sender, Allan Grey Investments.

Feed SA - Trolley - ambient, South Africa.

Feed SA is a charity dedicated to feeding disadvantaged people throughout South Africa. TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris says: "We placed decals of hungry begging street children at the bottom of supermarket trolleys bearing the Feed SA website and the line "See how easy feeding the hungry can be?" Any food placed in the trolley would appear to be given to the child."

People Opposing Woman Abuse, POWA

Every 26 seconds a woman is raped in south africa which is a mind numbingly 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.
