Most people, even in Norway, are unaware that Norwegian Airlines have a number of new direct long-haul
flights to places like New York, Los Angeles, SF and Bangkok.
To promote its direct long-haul service to New York, Norwegian Airlines invited shoppers in an Oslo
mall to take a virtual taxi ride around Manhattan. An interactive digital screen was connected live
with a custom-designed taxi.
People who took part could choose where to go, and control the 360 degree live stream camera on the
roof of the car while the driver gave them stories, about the city.
The campaign was top-trended/shared in Norway the first days and generated over +400.000 views
from 194 countries the first month on Youtube and facebook.
+700 articles generated on global level and +26.000.000 impressions in social media.
The film will also soon appear on inflight screens on all of Norwegian’s long-haul flights worldwide.

What if sharing a cute image could save the koalas?
The endangered koala probably gets more likes in social media than dollars in donations. But that’s all about to change.
The Australian Koala Foundation’s new social media initiative, Like for Lives, urges people to post a picture of a koala on Instagram or Facebook together with the promise: For every like this picture gets, I will donate 50 cent to savethekoala.com

Jimmy Östholm är inte vilken cykelentusiast som helst. Han har vigt större delen av sitt
liv till att förbättra upplevelsen för cyklister. För ett par år sedan startade han Porteur,
ett cykelmärke som kanske är mest känt för sin unika design, men också för One-for-One
samarbetet med UNICEF.
För att stärka relationen mellan varumärket Porteur och den innovationsdrivna målgruppen,
ville Jimmy som först ut i Norden, utforska möjligheterna kring cykling och Googles nya
storsatsning Google Glass.
På Ride with Glasses kunde du under sommaren följa Jimmys resa och läsa om alla tester
som han gjorde med Google Glass. Syftet är att ta på sig ledartröjan för vad som kan bli
framtidens cykelupplevelse, ge mer frihet och säkerhet till cyklister och inte bara driva Porteur,
utan hela branschen framåt.
Exempel på test: The Beauty of Biking
Något som började som ett relationsbyggande projekt mellan Porteur/Jimmy och cyklister
har skapat ett så stort intresse både i målgruppen och branschen, att Jimmy inom kort
kommer att lansera en helt ny typ av produktinnovationsidé på Kickstarter.com baserad
på Google Glass. Stay tuned..

The battery life of the LG G3 smartphone was at the release superior to all other smartphones
on the market including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and HTC One.
LG Nordics therefor wanted to target people with an extra need of a good battery life. We found
them up in the air, as there are no battery chargers onboard: Passengers using smartphones on
Norwegian Air’s wi-fi system.
We invented a new media placement.
When you log on the wifi, the ads recognized your hardware and compared it to the G3 and
delivered a message: “Low on Battery?” followed by “Level up with LG G3 and surf until touch-down“.
An estimated number of 1.2 million passengers flying to/from the Nordics, using wifi
during the flight were exposed to see the exclusive ads during the campaign.
During the campaign, LG G3 has topped the charts as “the most sought after phone”
and “best selling” in all the Nordic countries. (especially at airport stores).

The Formula 1 season has just started on Viasat Motor and it has never been more exciting for the Swedish F1 fans. For the first time in 23 years, a Swedish driver is challenging the elite in the highest league.
In homage to the Swedish driver, Marcus Ericsson, Viasat launched the world’s first Reinsta-ad based on a slightly unfortunate series of pictures.
The user “27Shine” wanted to immortalize Marcus debut at the Jerez Circuit on Instagram. But to capture the rapid F1 car on picture turned out to be easier said than done: in 7 out of 9 pictures, the car was missing.
The Reinsta-ad (ten images in total) was published on a number of F1 related Instagram accounts, see example below:
LG is one of the leading providers of consumer electronics but had not been able to establish a strong position in the Nordic TV market. But in February 2014, LG launched their new OLED-TV, the world’s largest and slimmest (only 4 mm) OLED TV.
How could we get the target audience to experience how slim a LG OLED-TV really is? And spread the word?
We realized that leading Nordic hifi magazine, “Sound & Vision” also happened to be exactly 4 mm thin. A coincidence leading to a unique product demonstration on the spine.
The unique product demonstration quickly attracted attention of over 500 technology sites and blogs around the world, including Gizmodo, Mashable, The Verge, Feber.se, Itavisen.no and computerworld.dk (some of the most prominent media to create awareness among the target group), which in turn generated a large spread in social media and truly emphasizing the LG Electronics tagline: It’s All Possible.
Xide is an alcopop with a simple message: No history. No Tradition.
When one of our biggest traditions, Christmas, was approaching – Xide wanted to inspire people to celebrate it in a new way.
Many are looking for the perfect X-mas playlist on Spotify. A playlist that doesn’t contain the usual X-mas track played every year.
Through a banner on Spotify, people could direct access new and different Christmas playlists such as X-mas Jazz, X-mas Metal and X-mas R’n'B. The playlists were collaborative and you could add your favorites.
In 10 days, more than 5000 songs were added to the playlists and almost 2000 followers.

Inför fas två i LG:s kylskåpskampanj “The Inside Story” flyttade det twittrande kylskåpet till nordpolen. Under två veckor uppfyllde självaste Jultomten svenska folkets önskningar genom det live-streamade kylskåpet och varje dag hade man chans att vinna en julklapp för den bästa önskningen.
Önska kunde man göra genom både Twitter och i ett formulär på www.lg-insidestory.se. Bland julklapparna återfanns några av LG:s storsäljare som LG G2 och G Pad tillsammans med mer ”juliga” klappar.
Att ha flest följare har sedan länge varit en outtalad tävling bland Twitter-anhängare. Men vem följer egentligen flest? LG:s senaste kampanj ’Follow the Most’ är en kapplöpning om att följa flest konton på Twitter.
Med överlägsen prestanda, fantastisk skärm och kraftfullt batteri är nya LG G2 den ultimata mobilen för den moderna och inbitna smartphone-användaren. De som hänger med i sociala medier och följer väldigt många bör därför använda LG G2 för den bästa upplevelsen.
Upplägget är mycket enkelt: Är du en av dem som följer flest konton på Twitter den 31 januari så blir du den lyckliga vinnaren av LG:s nya storsäljare.

How do you get lots of people talking about retirement savings? On Saturday nights?
“So Much Better” on Channel 4 is the most popular Saturday TV-show during fall in Sweden.
The hashtag #somuchbetter is always #1 on Twitter trending topics during Saturday nights.
Retirement savings, on the other hand, is something almost never talked about on Twitter.
SPP, a pension company, is a sponsor of this year’s “So Much Better” and to become a topic
of conversation we decided to kidnap the hashtag #somuchbetter with a new promoted hashtag
It quickly became the “official” So Much Better tag during the evening and after a few hours
there were thousands of tweets made together with SPP who also tweeted about pension using
the same hashtag.
In fall 2013, LG launched the new G2 Smartphone.
It was quicker, smarter, had better display and longer battery time.
How could we get other smartphone users to consider a LG G2?
People who love their iPhones, Galaxys and HTCs?
We chose to confront them. On their own phones.
We created smart banner ads that recognized the mobile hardware, compared it to the G2 and delivered a customized message, pointing out shortcomings of the competitor.
The banners gained click rate up to 830% higher than average. (*Source Havas Media)
After only five days, the banners had been picked up by 7,130 blogs, tech forums and newspapers worldwide.
To raise awareness of the new range of door-in-door refrigerators from LG, we needed to get the buzz going online. The Internet is full of lively conversations, but when was the last time someone had one about a fridge?
We created the world’s first tweeting refrigerator. The fridge was set up at the production company “Baluba” run by Swedish comedian Peter Settman and his friends. Every time someone opened the doors, the fridge sent out a tweet with an attached live video stream. People got an “inside” view into the daily work and a chance to see visiting celebrities.
We didn’t have to start the conversation. The fridge did it for us: several international news sites picked up the story about the worlds first tweeting refrigerator.
But not only that: the search word “LG” rose by 32% in Sweden during the campaign. The campaign message spread globally to over +1.200 influential blogs and newspapers which gave LG some well earned PR. Estimated PR value = 1.7 million Euro. Earned media with a reach of 76 millions.
How it works
Viasat Football is the number one channel for football fans.
To kick-off the new Premier League season, fans could show their passion in a live banner.
It soon became a serious love game between supporters of rival teams.
The ad was updated in average every 8th second on Sportbladet (the largest sports page in Sweden).
In 2012, Russia passed an anti-gay propaganda law that banned gay parades for a hundred years. Subsequently, Russia saw a surge of hate crimes motivated by homophobia. No one acknowledged this or came to their support.
Since a strict control of media was imposed, we needed to find new ways of reaching out and spread the word about the situation.
We urged people to compose a tweet-invitation on gowest2013.com to invite Russians westward to Stockholm Pride. The tweets were automatically translated into Russian and the geotag was changed to a Russian city as we were aiming for the trending topic list inside Russia.
After only 3 days, GOWEST became a trending topic. An incredible wave of tweet-invitations was sent from the website reaching 3,7 million Russian Twitter-accounts. International media and influential celebrities picked up the story, which resulted in the festival being mentioned 10 times more in media than previous years. Number of attendees to Stockholm Pride rise by 33%.
The campaign also inspired many other initiatives supporting the Russian LGBT-community. But more importantly: What started as a single tweet contributed to placing a serious issue firmly on the global agenda.

Our brief was to put Stockholm Art Week on the map and create buzz. We took it literally and created an app that captures your movements on a map of Stockholm using GPS, and transfers this to an artist who paints the movements on a real canvas. Your ‘art walk’ became a brush stroke on the co-created art piece. People could visit www.stockholmisyourcanvas.com and see how their brush strokes – and the whole canvas – came to life through a live streamed link to the artist’s studio.
The campaign generated PR for Stockholm Art Week in local and national TV, radio and newspapers as well as international buzz online. The finished canvas was displayed at the closing party and then sold. The were used to support young artists in Stockholm.

Providing people in the developing world with simple means of transportation can make a huge difference in their life. We created a new bicycle brand and product to address this issue – in a both practical and pragmatic way. For every bicycle sold, we donate a UNICEF bike to children in need. One for One.
