Jung von Matt/Elbe, Hamburg wanted to not just talk about how awake k-fee Caffeine Drink makes you feel, but to actually "wake people up" direct, straightforward way. "Sleeping policemen" were made to look like K-fee cans. As a result, cyclists bumping over those things would wake up, and notice the cans. The target group - young people - are far more likely to ride fast across these things thus getting the extra bumpy-ride.

    Can't wait until the next time it rains and cyclists start sliding off the rain-slicked plastic bumps and falling in front of moving trucks. I nominate this for the new Cannes category - Advertising that hurts.
