Kaspersky Lab: One Dollar Lesson

Phishing, trojan apps, brute force methods, etc. With more that $100.000.000 stolen in 2014 from GameOver Zeus malware, we all understand that online safety is crucial. That’s the reason Kaspersky Lab experts have designed an interactive and spectacular web-project called ‘One dollar lesson‘.

One Dollar Lesson

Take their digital dollar and embark on a virtual journey that starts at three possible locations: a laptop, a tablet, or a smartphone, and goes through the endless spaces of the world wide web to the destination point — a bank server.

One Dollar Lesson

The creative graphical content goes hand-in-hand with information about the different tricks and methods fraudsters use to steal your money and banking credentials.
A dollar is your guide and vehicle in this virtual reality – depending on the situation it shifts from an airliner to a fighter aircraft.

There are three stories you can trace: sending money to a charity in need, transferring money from one account to another, and shopping online. In each case, you’ll see different scenarios. Every one dollar payment will face numerous obstacles like that aim to hack weak passwords, etc. All these risks are shown figuratively. Fortunately, there are ‘good green guys’ in this world who save our dollar and help it reach the destination point.

Samsung: Hearing hands

Samsung promotes their video call centers with a heartwarming stunt. The story goes like this. Muharrem Yazgan, a deaf Instanbul man walks down the street with his sister but this is not a regular morning. People around him are using sign language to communicate with him. Hidden cameras were recording his day until he came to a Samsung digital kiosk and sees a woman from Samsung's call center who uses sign language to talk to him. He smiles and sheds a few tears.

Leo Burnett Instanbul spent a month teaching sing language to his neighbours.

Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels

Love has no labels. This installation with dancing and kissing skeletons proves that before anything else, we are all human and calls us to stop discrimination and embrace diversity. To put aside labels in the name of love.

Did you know that we do 98% of our thinking in our subconscious mind? This might be the reason that many people in the US still report feeling discriminated against, though most Americans agree that people should be treated respectfully and fairly.

The important thing is to educate ourselves and watch for biases when they surface. Implicit bias influences how people are treated and how they interact with each other. It can also perpetuate disparities by altering someone’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment or get a fair trial.

To end bias, we need to become aware of it. And then we need to do everything within our power to stop it. In ourselves, others, and institutions. The world will be a better place for it.

"Playthings" safety PSA is charming yet dead-serious at the same time

Evolve's "Playthings", the most viewed gun safety PSA in history, reaching more than 7 million people, gets a print campaign that further illustrates the importance of keeping guns locked up when ever-so-curious children are at home.

The charmingly provocative ads feature kids playing with all manner of taboo household items – condoms, mom’s lacey lingerie, maxi pads, sex toys and tampons – with the simple reminder: ‘If they find it, they’ll play with it.’  That’s an embarrassing prospect if kids find a lacey bra, but it’s a terrifying one if they find an unlocked gun.

Rebecca Bond, Evolve’s co-founder said: “Owning a firearm, and living with them in our communities, comes with the heavy responsibility of safety. Let’s face it, kids find everything.  Some things are simply embarrassing.  Some things are potentially lethal and there is absolutely no do-over.  Hoping that kids exercise good judgment – or are even capable of doing so – is not a bulletproof plan for any parent. We have to keep finding more ways for everyone to take on these conversations; ensuring that no other lives are tragically impacted by lax and avoidable safety behaviors.  Wouldn’t that be amazing?”

Jesus and His Marketing Stunts in a great self promo

Advertising stunts have gone from obscure operations to mainstream media. Clicks and shares are now conventional media measures. Stunts are harder to write, shoot, manage, produce and edit than traditional 30 second television spots.

To showcase its unique production and post-production offerings, 1one created a promotional video in partnership with integrated advertising agency lg2 that gives viewers a seat at an iconic brand planning session led by the most famous advertising client of all time, Jesus. The table talk fictitiously reveals how 1One helped the Messiah top his previous branded efforts — no small task when you’re trying to outdo giving sight to the blind or turning water into wine.

“With the evolution of media, and the viewer becoming more intelligent (and cynical) towards traditional advertising, we need to create stunts that can't look like anything short of amazing,” says Jean-René Parenteau, executive producer and associate, 1one. “When it comes to doing that, you want an expert, not someone who's just hoping they can pull it off. This has been our focus for the past five years. Stunts aren't a new trend for us. It's what we've always done and focused our expertise towards.”
