Evolve: Playthings. A dildo fight becomes a strong PSA.

Kids are having a dildo fight in front of their moms. Yes it's funny at first. But there is more to that. A very smart way for Evolve to make a strong PSA. I don't want to spoil the surprice so just watch it.

NAR Mobile: Donor Cable Project

How a mobile company can increase blood donations by 335%?
Y&R Moscow created Donor Cable, a bracelet for Nar Mobile that you can use to donate power from one smartphone to another. The message "Donate energy to save a phone, and donate blood to save a life." urged users to donate blood in order to help kids in Azerbaijan that are born with the blood disorder thalassemia. Azerbaijan is No1 in the world in thalassemia and babies who suffer from it need extensive blood transfusions.

I would say kudos to the agency and the client for the Donor Cable bracelet for a true life-saving project. BUT why are they going to Cannes with this idea since the same one is already been done and with the same name by Leo Burnett. See the case study below the credits.

JCDecaux: Google Street View Unpaid Bills

A huge bill to your client make be the answer to get that meeting you wanted. This is what JCDecaux together with BBDO Belgium did. They sent 53 of Belgium’s biggest advertisers a framed picture of their campaign on Google Street view. They attached a letter and a detailed invoice to inform them that their billboard had been visible on Google Street View for years and years without being paid for. Instead of paying of course they just asked from the advertisers a meeting, so they could listen to their sales team about the digital technologies they provide.

McDonald's: Save the Sundae Cone

A giant billboard with a melting McDonald's Sundae Cone was placed in the middle of Bukit Bintang, one of the most famous shopping districts in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. People could use their smartphones and spin the fan on the billboard to bring down the temperature, stop the melting and receive a 10 minutes voucher for a free Sundae Cone. Funny, interactive and relevant to the product. Nice work.

Yaocho: The Sleeping Drunks Billboard

This stunt will make all drinkers in Tokyo to think twice before they drink. There is a big problem in Japan with thousands of people who drink till they drop and sleep on the street. To address the problem of Drunk Sleeping, the bar chain Yaocho with the help of Ogilvy & Mather and Geometry Global, turned sleeping drunks into human billboards against excessive drinking. All they needed was duck tape, printed headlines, logos and a hashtag. See the case study.

Heineken‏: The Better Halves

You have half of the ticket for the Champions League Final. Would you ask your better half to perform the Champions League anthem live to get you the other half? That’s what Heineken and the digital advertising agency NEXT-DC asked Bulgarian fans and the answer was positive.

62 wives and girlfriends took the stage all because of their men and their passion for the game. Custom hardware and voice recognition software detected the three performances that were closest to the timing of the original anthem. They were awarded with the second half of the ticket and a seat at the Final.
