KFC: #LittleMoneyBigFun vs #RichKidsOfInstragram

Great Spoof of the #RichKidsOfInstragram from KFC Romania. Rich kids use this # το upload photos ranging from private jets and Ferrari's to diamonds and high-end designer clothings.

MRM//McCann Romania introduced the #distractiepebaniputini (#LittleMoneyBigFun in English) and asked Romanians to choose a photo from a rich kid and upload their own side-by-side version.


Young Romanians loved the idea and the parody began. You can see the images in the tumblr page.

The results are impressive: 21% increase in sales

The Generational Content Gap infographic

Depending on which generation you belong, you consume content differently. So, when you make content it's very important to know who your target is.

This infographic, based on a survey of BuzzStream and Fractl is clearly showing the diversity among age groups.

The data are from 1200 people from three generations - Millennials (people who born in between 1981-1997), Generation X (born 1965-1980), and Baby Boomers (born 1946–1964).

Key takeaways:

Quantity: Baby Boomers consume 15-20 hours per week. Gen X and Millennials consume 5-10 hours.
Time: Late Evening, (08 PM to 11:59 PM) for all generations, so posting at that time is a good idea.
Device: Laptops are the first choice. Then PCs. Over 25% of Millennials use mobile as their primary device. Make sure that your site is responsive Don't forget to optimize for mobile. More than a quarter of Millennials use mobile as their primary device for viewing content.
Length: 300 words are the desired length for all generations.
Platform: Facebook is the king.
Visual: Images are the most shared visual content.
Genres: Each generation has their own unique preferences. Baby Boomers consume world news and politics. Millennials are first in technology. Gen Xers are first in healthy living and personal finance.

JCDecaux gets too personal with Marketing Directors

Closing business presentations with leading marketing directors is always a struggle. They are always very busy. JCDecaux found the perfect way to tackle that.

Instead of just mailing an invitation for their presentation about ‘The effectiveness of outdoor’, JCDecaux and BBDO Belgium came up with “Personal Billboards” to prove the effectiveness of the medium.

For every director they wanted to contact, they made a billboard with his a photo without asking for permission. Each billboard only had their name and a contact address of JCDecaux.


Then they waited for a reaction, so the marketing directors could tell for themselves how effective outdoor still is. They reacted exactly how JCDecaux wanted: confused, shocked and a little annoyed that people kept contacting them to know what the purpose was.

JCDecaux responded with an e-mail apologizing for any inconvenience: “We just wanted you to experience the effectiveness of outdoor advertising, As you said it yourself, you got so many reactions from only one single billboard. Just imagine what our entire network could do for your brand.”

After, they could to sign up for the presentation… And why wouldn’t they free up some of their time now? After all, it’s hard to disagree with yourself, right?

So every single one of them booked a presentation, and JCDecaux reached a response of 100%. Talk about effectiveness.

Re-born to be alive launches first radio campaign‏

Organ donation is a serious decision that people should strongly consider. Duval Guillaume and Ray Gun made the "heartbeats" radio campaign for Re-born to be alive, a nonprofit organization that stands for the promotion of organ donation and transplantation.

With this campaign Duval Guillaume wants to raise awareness about organ donation, the possibilities people have, to spark discussions about the topic and make people understand that life can be passed over to someone else, making a person's death the continuity of another's life.

The campaign will be aired on FM Brussels.

Carlsberg's poster is probably the best poster in the world

Carlsberg reintroduced its iconic strapline in the UK with a first of its kind OOH campaign.
A poster who works as a beer tap!

It's easy to say that a poster that gives free beer is #ProbablyTheBest poster in the world.

Carlsberg - Probably the best poster in the world

The poster was located at The Truman Brewery in London’s Brick Lane and offered to people over 18 free beer for one day. The stunt is part of the new £12m TV campaign which is based around the theme “If Carlsberg did...”

Carlsber's “Probably the best...” slogan was revived in 2015 after four years (they had dropped it in 2011 after nearly four decades).

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America releases “Not Allowed”

It seems like a joke that you can carry a gun at Kroger's but not a skateboard, an animal or a squirt gun. The problem is that it is true!

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America releases “Not Allowed” a new film ad today and the launch of “World’s Longest Receipt” highlighting the cost of Kroger’s failure to adopt gun sense policies that protect the safety of their customers and employees.

The "World’s Longest Receipt"

Here is the Press Release for this serious issue:

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America releases “Not Allowed” a new film ad today and the launch of “World’s Longest Receipt” highlighting the cost of Kroger’s failure to adopt gun sense policies that protect the safety of their customers and employees.

The launch comes as Moms Demand Action today applauds Safeway & Albertsons, the country’s second largest grocery store chain, for responding to Moms’ calls and clarifying their company-wide policy prohibiting firearms in their stores.

“Moms are thrilled to see Safeway and Albertsons leadership stand up for gun sense by clarifying and reinforcing its firearms policy – this gives us another clear alternative of where to shop alongside other gun sense stores like Target, Costco and Whole Foods, especially while Kroger has not yet responded to our call to keep customers and employees safe from gun violence in their stores,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

As part of the effort to highlight Kroger’s failure to update it’s store policy, Moms Demand Action released a new 60-second ad produced by Grey Toronto, featuring individuals open carrying firearms in the aisles of a supermarket, behavior that is permitted by Kroger policies, in contrast to people carrying other objects that are prohibited from most Kroger stores, including skateboards, animals, and squirt guns.

“Our new ad shows how Kroger policies are inconsistent and alarming – particularly given that the laws in a majority of states do not require a background check, permitting or even training to open carry a firearm,” continued Watts. “In all states, businesses have an obligation to protect their employees and patrons and until Kroger steps up, Moms will put our money where our mouths are and shop at stores that put our safety first like Safeway and Alberstons.”

Also today, Moms Demand Action released the “World’s Longest Receipt”, an ongoing tally of dollars spent at Kroger competitors with gun sense policies. Moms invite customers to enter the amount spent at stores that put the safety of our families first — stores like Whole Foods, Costco, Target, and now Safeway and Albertsons. As receipts are entered, the site will display an ongoing tally of the total dollars spent elsewhere.

“Kroger needs to know that their refusal to act is costing them money as Moms take our grocery shopping elsewhere,” added Watts. “Now we’re keeping track of all the money Kroger is losing to its gun sense competitor and with the help of our supporters, we will create the World’s Longest Receipt.”

Moms Demand Action’s petition calling on Kroger Family of Stores President ad Chief Operating Officer Michael Ellis, and W. Rodney McMullen to prohibit open carry in its supermarkets was launched in response to incidences of gun violence in and around stores, as well as open carry demonstrations organized by gun extremists who brought loaded semi-automatic assault weapons into stores (photos here). The petition has over 360,000 signatures.

Moms Demand Action’s Kroger campaign follows similar efforts aimed at Target, Starbucks,Chipotle, Sonic, Chili’s and Jack in the Box that led these companies to take swift action to stand with Moms and enforce or adopt policies that prohibit open carry to protect the safety of their employees and customers.
