McDonald’s plays off of sneaker culture to hype up its latest offering with Big Mac x Bacon Limited Edition Collaboration

The Big Mac turns 50 this year and to celebrate the iconic burger in an interesting and relevant way, this campaign drops the burger right in the centre of hip-hop and streetwear culture in a bold and irreverent way.


Alexander Wang x Adidas, Supreme x Louis Vuitton, Fenty x Puma, Big Mac® x Bacon. To kick-off the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic Big Mac, McDonald’s Canada is releasing the Big Mac x Bacon: Limited Edition Collaboration.


The collab launched with a weeklong teaser campaign across the country, filled with cryptic black and white imagery and design that played off fashion and sneaker culture, hinting at a mysterious upcoming collaboration: “BM x B.” A teaser TV spot aired during the Grammy’s to hype up the new mystery collab. “It’s the combination of two greats. Two powerhouses,” a mysterious voice said.

On January 30th, it was revealed that this next great release is actually the collaboration of Big Mac and Bacon. A series of cheeky black and white films across television, online, and outdoor, feature high fashion types analyzing and explaining this new collab’s importance to culture.

“We really wanted to showcase the Big Mac in a modern and relevant way by integrating it into pop culture, while at the same time not taking ourselves too seriously,” says Antoinette Benoit, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald’s Canada. “We took inspiration from how a fashion company might launch an exclusive collection by revealing the promotion as a limited-edition collaboration, through a series of billboards and ads until we finally revealed the Big Mac, treating it like the cultural icon it is.”

“Over the course of its 50-year history, the Big Mac has become a culinary icon and the recipe has remained unchanged since its introduction. That’s pretty remarkable,” says Jeff Anderson, McDonald’s Canada Chef. “The addition of another Canadian classic—bacon—to the sandwich for a limited-time symbolizes the modern McDonald’s journey, with innovative menu items alongside much-loved classics. "

“The Big Mac x Bacon was designed to feel contemporary in outlook,” says Peter Ignazi, Global Chief Creative Officer, Cossette. “The look and feel were a departure from traditional McDonald’s campaigns to support the weeklong teaser period and misdirect fans into thinking the collaboration was between two fashion or cultural icons. We created a complete design system that included a custom bacon logo and an edgy modern typeface."

Samsung Galaxy - Over the Horizon. A blind man's photographic journey

‘Over the Horizon‘, a new campaign for Samsung Galaxy is based on the real life story of Alexander Zhuravlev, a blind photographer from Russia, who was able to take a step beyond the horizon of his own possibilities.

The campaign aims to inspire ordinary people to push beyond their own comfort zone and understand that daily life has much more to offer than they expect.

Samsung Galaxy - Over the Horizon Cheil Russia

The campaign features Alexander Zhuravlev – a photographer with only 2% residual vision.

Alexander became blind at the age of 11 as the result of an illness. Despite seeing almost nothing he is a passionate skier, a traveller and an enthusiastic photographer.

He lives at full throttle and believes that disability will only hold you back if you allow it to.
Driven by wanderlust, Alexander visited India alone and has travelled further since. He says that he can feel the world around him through the rest of his senses.

And 2% vision is enough to see what is most important: sunlight, colours and the horizon.

During his latest journey to South Ural, the Russian region famous for its severe climate and beautiful landscape,

Alexander took a series of photographs using a Samsung Galaxy smartphone to create a social project comprising an online video, a website and a photography exhibition.

His exhibition opened in The Lumiere Brothers Gallery in Moscow.

The Fairtrade Foundation: Farley & Bell

This hard-hitting stunt from AMVBBDO demonstrates how people are often seduced by nice branding and don't think to question where their food might come from.

Salespeople from a fake new brand called Farley & Bell approach people on the street asking them to sign up to a new fruit and veg box scheme. What they didn't expect was that these fresh and cheap fruit boxes would be delivered to their front doors by exhausted and struggling children.

The Fairtrade Foundation - Farley & Bell

Then they learn that Farley & Bell is actually a fake brand, created to highlight the exploitation of farmers and child labour in countries such as Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire by food companies.

“Sometimes you just don’t think what’s behind the cheap price. You get drawn in by a deal and pretty packaging,” says one shocked buyer.

U.K.'s "Fairtrade Fortnight," is running from Feb. 27- March 12 and the stunt took place on the streets of West London.

Jonathan Smith, head of campaigns at the Fairtrade Foundation said: "Whether in the UK or in Malawi, no one deserves to be short-changed for a hard day’s work. Farmers get a better deal when they sell their crops on Fairtrade terms. Through Fairtrade, farmers can invest in better farming practice, earn more money for their crops, and make sure their children are fed and can go to school. Communities can also invest in clean water and clinics, improving everyone’s health."

Air France "French Kiss & Ride" by Duval Guillaume

Saying goodbye to your loved once at the airport is always a very intense moment. However, long queues and the necessity to be there on time prevent you from doing just that. But not when you live in Belgium and travel with Air France. To emphasize the convenience of travelling with Air France from Bruxelles-Midi, Duval Guillaume developed the campaign “French Kiss & Ride”: Kiss & Ride, the French way.

Air France French Kiss & Ride

The French Kiss & Ride is, first of all, a spot in the underground parking of the train station: parking is free so you can say goodbye properly - totally different from any other standard Kiss & Ride zone, where you can only stay for about 2 minutes.

To make your goodbye even more memorable, Duval Guillaume created a special spot in the train station. Here everyone could take the time to say goodbye to their loved ones, before taking the train to a faraway destination. The goodbye was filmed, and the movie was sent to your mailbox as a souvenir, and to share on social media. In and around Bruxelles-Midi different posters and digital banners showed the way to the French Kiss & Ride spot. Influencers and travel bloggers were invited to share pictures and movies with their followers. No doubt: from now on there is time to say "Au revoir, mon amour!" before you leave for a flight.
