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:
Formel 1-säsongen har dragit igång på allvar på Viasat Motor. För att hylla den svenska F1-föraren Marcus Ericssons intåg i högsta serien gjorde Viasat (världens första?) Reinsta-annons baserad på en aningen oturlig serie bilder.
Debuten för svensken skedde på Jerez-banan i Spanien, något som användaren ”27Shine” ville föreviga på Instagram. Men att fånga Marcus på bild visade sig vara lättare sagt än gjort. På 7 av 9 bilder saknas bilen helt i bild.
Reinsta-annonsen (totalt nio bilder + slutruta) lades ut på ett antal motorrelaterade Instagram-konton, se exempel nedan:
When LG launched the new curved, 4mm thin OLED-TV, touted as one of the thinnest televisions on the market, we found a lucky coincidence. The leading Nordic electronics mag, “Sound & Vision” happened to be exactly 4 mm thin – the same as the television itself, leading to a unique media placement on the magazine’s spine.

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.
E-mail marketing don’t typically scream “creativity,” but this Scandinavian campaign for VIASAT
defies convention with its smart use of the media. VIASAT, a broadcast company, loves sport. That’s why they offer the broadest range of sport in Scandinavia. We wanted to promote this in a direct email.
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.
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.
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.
The Australian Koala Foundation is encouraging people to Adopt a Koala into their family by adding a ‘K +1′ button on their blogs or webpages (the Koala equivalent of Google’s +1 button). The initiative was born because more koalas are losing their habitat and their food source of eucalyptus trees in the wild; the Foundation is highlighting their plight.
