Norwegian Red Cab

Interactive Billboard Takes Norwegians on a Live Taxi Ride Through NYC.


Background
Norwegian Airlines is the third largest low-cost carrier in Europe. They have been named Europe’s
Best Low Cost Airline two years in a row. The company has 417 routes to 126 destinations.
All at low, low prices.

Brief
But most people, even in Norway, are unaware that Norwegian Airlines have a number of new
direct long-haul flights to places like New York.

How can we increase awareness about flying long haul among the target audience? Especially in
Norway? And make them engage with a destination like New York in a new way?

Idea
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.

Results
The campaign top-trended/shared in Norway the first days and generated over +500.000 views
the first month on Youtube and facebook.

+820 articles generated on both in Norway and on a global level and +44.600.000 impressions
in social media.

January 2015 had a considerable growth in long-haul operation, read more here.

Like for Lives / Australian Koala Foundation

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

Porteur – Ride with Glasses

img_1317

Bakgrund:
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.

Utmaning:
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.

Ide:
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

Resultat:
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..

LG G3 – “Low On Battery?” inflight banners

Background
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.

Idea
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“.

Results
Reach:
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.

Sales:
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).

PR: 
The story have been picked up by tons of blogs, forums and media worldwide,

VIASAT ❤ SPEED (the world’s first Reinsta-ad)

Background
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.

Idea
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.

Results
The Reinsta-ad (ten images in total) was published on a number of F1 related Instagram accounts, see example below:

LG – 4 MM (AN EXTRAORDINARY PRODUCT DEMONSTRATION)

b08bf2aa9b5a9a702d71d0b0c0f25f50BACKGROUND
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 2014, LG launched their new OLED-TV, the world’s largest and slimmest (only 4 mm) OLED TV.

CHALLENGE
How could we get the target audience to experience how slim a LG OLED-TV really is? And spread the word?

EXECUTION
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.

RESULTS
The unique product demonstration quickly attracted attention of over 700 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.

LG – Xmas Story

(OBS: LG Xmas Story börjar vid 01:00 in i videon)

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.

#somuchbetter -> #somuchbetterspp

 

CHALLENGE
How do you get lots of people talking about retirement savings? On Saturday nights?

BACKGROUND
“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.

SOLUTION
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
called #somuchbetterspp

RESULT
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.

LG G2 Smartbanners (Recognize and Respond to Competitors’ Hardware)


Background:

Challenge:
How could we get other smartphone users to consider a LG G2?
People who love their iPhones, Galaxys and HTCs?

Strategy:
We chose to confront them. On their own phones.

Idea:
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.

Result:
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.

LG – The Inside Story (the world’s first tweeting refrigerator)

 

Campaign site (translated demo version)

Challenge
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?

Solution
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.

Results
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.

What were the objectives for the creative work?

Our objective was to raise awareness of the oppression of the Russian LGBTQ community: a subject completely ignored by domestic and international press.

In 2012, Russia passed an anti-gay propaganda law banning Pride parades for 100 years. Subsequently, Russia saw a surge of hate crimes motivated by homophobia.

No one acknowledged this, offered support or reported the story either in or outside of Russia. With media under strict control new ways of reaching out and raising awareness were needed.

What was the strategy behind the creative work?
We got GOWEST, an initiative supporting the Russian LGBTQ community, trending on Twitter within Russia. And, in doing so, forced Russian and international press to pay attention.

What was the creative work?
The campaign began with a single tweet. It urged people to visit gowest2013.com and compose their own tweets inviting Russians westward to Stockholm Pride. Importantly, the tweets were automatically translated into Russian. The geotag was changed to Russian cities which enabled the topic to start trending on Twitter within Russia.

What effect did it have in the market?
From a single tweet on 14th May 2013 all this happened:

Reach
In just three days, GOWEST was trending on Twitter in Russia. An incredible wave of tweet-invitations were sent from gowest2013.com, reaching over 3.7 million Russian Twitter accounts. *source: tweetreach.com

PR
The cause was picked up and retweeted by influential celebrities. This not only helped GOWEST trend in Russia, but these endorsements sparked the attention of the international press, helping GOWEST explode with worldwide coverage. Even Russian mainstream media featured the initiative. Stockholm Pride estimates the PR coverage generated was 10x higher than previous years.

Social response
GOWEST started with a single tweet and resulted in direct response of 110,000 interactions (likes and follows) in the first week alone. Earned media for the campaign period is estimated at 680,000,000 (impressions) worldwide. *source: tweetreach.com

Sales
The secondary objective of GOWEST was to raise attendance at Stockholm Pride by 8%. The activity drove a 33% rise, smashing the objective by 300% and a year-on-year increase of 800%.

Other
GOWEST was the first and only campaign to focus on the oppression of Russian LGBTQ community, precisely when the cause was being ignored by domestic and international media. It has since inspired other local and global initiatives in support of the same cause.

Stockholm Art Week – Stockholm is your Canvas

SIYC_logo

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.
