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.

Motorola - Skip the sevens

With a bold move Motorola goes against Apple and Samsung and urges people to skip the sevens and opt for a Moto Z with Moto Pods.

In a perfect timing, with Samsung's Note 7 blowing up -literally- and Apple's iPhone 7 disappointing release, Motorola claims true innovation. In the following video you'll see a focus group of Apple fans getting “tricked” into believing that the company’s Moto Z is a new iPhone prototype.

Motorola - Skip the sevens

The copy:
When the first generation of the iPhone came out, it changed everything. It was the rebel, the challenger. And it knocked us off our perch. But that was nine years ago.

It seems like the smartphone category is focused on incremental improvements. Display sizes increase by fractions of an inch. Cameras change by a few megapixels. And you often have to wait years for the next big thing. 

We admit that we played that game too. Until now. So this year, skip the sevens. Go for something new, something different. Because, while everyone else is figuring out how to improve their smartphones, we reimagined what a smartphone can be.

The Moto Z with Moto Mods doesn't just give you a slightly better camera, you get a Hasselblad with 10x optical zoom. Instead of small speakers, you get rock JBL stereo sound. Instead of another year of 5" screens, you get a 70" projection.

Our industry was built on thinking differently. Some have forgotten. So for now, we'll carry the torch. Different is better.

Jack Daniel's records covers of old Christmas carols‏

Jack Daniel’s has his own way of doing things. Even on Christmas. At least in Bulgaria.

To inspire their audience to stay true to themselves in the midst of the holiday season Jack Daniel’s Bulgaria and NEXT-DC teamed up to revitalize the age old Christmas carols, which hardly ever change with the seasons. To achieve that, NEXT-DC scouted some of Bulgaria’s most prominent underground musicians to create a band—The Jacks—and together they undertook the uneasy task to set an alternative tone for anyone who wants to escape from the typical holiday cliché tunes.


The band recorded three covers of well-known songs — Jingle Bells, We Wish You A Mеrry Christmas and Silent Night in typical Jack Daniel’s style. The three songs, performed by the newly formed band The Jacks, were accompanied by alternative videos, which are more akin to current rock or indie hits. To set the tone for a different celebration, the three music videos appear as pre-roll ads whenever someone plays a typical holiday tune.

Whopper Move Out case study

A few months ago Burger King in France with the collaboration of Buzzman made a promise: to help those who don’t have the chance yet to have a restaurant close to their place. Burger King reopened in France in 2013 with 20 restaurants. The goal is 400. Thus, Burger King created Whopper Move Out, a relocation company that only helps people living in a city where there is no Burger King to move in a city where there is one. And for free. The campaign had a huge return on earn media. This is the case study.

A "Stalker" viewed your LinkedIn profile. BBDO for Vier

What a great and creepy way to launch a new thriller series. BBDO Belgium used the "who’s viewed your profile" LinkedIn's feature to anounce the launch of "Stalker" on Vier.

They took advantage of that feature by creating a fictional LinkedIn profile named ‘Stalker’ and filled it out with broadcast info, an exclusive trailer and some personal yet very disturbing details.

Then ‘Stalker’ started visiting profiles. Each of the 12.0000 users received from LinkedIn a notification that "Stalker, self-employed at a place near you" viewed their profiles. Then curiosity did its part and 63% viewed Stalker’s profile.

People liked the idea and spread the word on Twitter. Even without having a Twitter account of his own, ‘Stalker’ got around 27,600 Twitter impressions.

Mercedes E-Class Estate: The Transportable Banner

When Mercedes asked BBDO to make a bannering campaign that shows how spacious the new E-Class Estate is, they came up with a smart idea that transformed the classic banner into a medium that proves Mercedes’ promise.

BBDO introduced the Transportable Banner. A banner showing the E-Class Estate, which is suddenly being ripped out of its framework by two guys and transported to the E-Class Estate parked right behind it. Finally the two guys store it nicely in the trunk of the E-Class Estate.

FAR CRY 4: What are you made of?

For the European launch of Far Cry 4, Grey Paris creates a unique interactive campaign with 42 million possible routes, offering a completely different experience from one user to another.

Grey Paris has created 1 digital platform with 4 interactive rites of passage and 42 millions possibilities:
- A deadly face-to-face with « An eye for an eye »
- An impenetrable mind maze with « Rabbit hole »
- A hypnotic trance with « Mind Blossom »
- A blindfolded sound chase with « Escape »

Each rite is composed of interactive films in which the user has only a few seconds to make a decision and get out of the extreme situation he is trapped in. Each choice he makes triggers another sequence of events, pushing the user to make another choice and so on and so forth...

At the end of each rite, the user’s choices are analysed with a specific algorithm that determines his personality based on 5 criteria: toughness, violence, bravery, endurance and wisdom.

High-end cinematographic quality within the digital world. The numbers are staggering.
It took one year to conceive, develop and produce this campaign. In order to create a highly immersive experience, Grey Paris worked with the production company Stink & Stink digital and film director Nieto who brings all his cinematographic experience in this project. They shot over 168 different video sequences that, combined with the 42 million routes possible, reach the gold number of 100 days required to watch the videos from each of these routes.

1 new rite of passage will be revealed every week, starting today, October  22nd and ending November 12th, two weeks before the launch of FC4 on November 18th

Paw Justice: Animal Strike

An animal strike that changed a law. Paw Justice with the help of DDB New Zealand collaborated with Google and YouTube and blocked videos with animal content in order to make people sign a petition to force the goverment to change a law that allowed legal-highs to be tested on animals.

The insight was simple. People love to see entertaining videos of animals online. So a nationwide block of these videos would definitely spread the word.

Street posters, print ads, TVCs and billboards, where also used in the campaign, along with a website with the petition and a strike toolkit with all the files needed for the public in order to upload then to their social media profiles, YouTube channels and websites to block their own animal content.

This incredible collaboration made the Prime Minister John Key announce that there will be no further testing of legal-highs on animals in his country.

The Hunter and the Bear in Pharrell Williams' book

The hunter and the bear, heroes of one of the most acclaimed digital campaigns of the last decade are back with another friend, the amazing Pharrell Williams. Get ready for an exhilarating adventure...

This year, Tipp-Ex®, N°1 correction brand in Europe,Bic® and Pharrell Williams go together to make history by creating the first participatory book instantly translated into 5 languages. A real technological feat imagined by Buzzman agency for a world first!

The idea: Tipp-Ex® and Buzzman asked Pharrell to write a book about the source of his inspiration. A few hours before the book launch, struck by panic due to fierce readers seeking to steal the book, the bear decided to cover the whole book with Tipp-Ex® to protect its contents.

With this blunder starts a new Tipp-Ex® adventure ... To participate, you will have to enter the cabin of the hunter and the bear and help find the thousands of words, which have been covered in the book.

Obviously, the hunter, the bear and even Pharrell will be there at every moment with hints to help you complete the book. The more words you find, the closer your name will be in the credits alongside Pharrell Williams.

Once completed by users, the “Social Book” will be printed and published.

Profits will be donated to an organization supporting disadvantaged children as they attempt to, hopefully, rewrite their lives.

Canal+: ‘Wilhelm Scream’ Mockumentary

"The Woman Who Can’t Watch Movies" is the widow of Sheb Wooley and she can't watch movies because he keeps hearing her husband's screem. “The Wilhelm scream,” is a legendary stock audio scream, recorded by Sheb Wooley and used  in the 1951 film Distant Drums. It was named after the character Private Wilhelm in the 1953 western The Charge of the Feather River. It has been used in over 200 films since then (including Star Wars, Toy Story, Indana Jones, Lord of the Rings and more).

Intel and Toshiba: The Power Inside

The third social film experience from Intel & Toshiba is here. They started two year ago with "Inside Experience" and now with the "Power Inside" we deal with an alien invasion. It seems that extraterrestrial moustaches and unibrows take over the upper lips and eyes of people around the world.

Your face can join the Uricks (the aliens) or the Guardians. Just visit or to watch the trailer and audition to be in the film. To join the Urick team and potentially be featured in the film you have to upload a photo to the Facebook Page, and the facial recognition software will add a moustache or unibrow. You can also upload videos of yourself removing a moustache to join the Guardian team.

The Power Inside. A social film from Intel/Toshiba starring Harvey Keitel

Directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon  (“Blades of Glory” and “The Switch”), the movie stars Harvey Keitel (“Reservoir Dogs”), Craig Roberts (“Submarine”), Analeigh Tipton (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”), Reid Ewing (“Modern Family”) and Zack Pearlman (“The Inbetweeners”).

The first episode of the social film will be available on August 15 and continue online over the next six weeks.
