Volkswagen GTI Bannerbahn

If you have ever waited for the traffic lights to turn green while sitting in a Golf GTI, you know why people drive them. The GTI is about horse power and about speed. And this is exactly what Dutch agency Achtung! translated into a fun, playful campaign for the German car brand: Try to catch a GTI on the “Volkswagen Bannerbahn”.

The campaign connects paid banner media space with the real world by challenging the user to catch a Volkswagen Golf GTI. Click on the zig-zaging car that is actually driven by a real driver in the real world. Oh, and if you succeed you can actually win the real car.

Volkswagen Bannerbahn is another great concept that bridges digital with reality.

Coca-Cola | Small World Machines | Bringing India & Pakistan Together

In March 2013, Coca-Cola set out to break down barriers and create a simple moment of connection between two nations — India and Pakistan. The initiative “Small World Machines” provided a live communications portal between people in India and Pakistan and showed that what unites us is stronger than what sets us apart. The key to engaging with each other through the machines was simple: people in India and Pakistan could complete a task, like touching hands, drawing peace, love, and happiness symbols — together.

Coca-Cola | Ice Bottle

During its ice bottle giveaway in Colombia, Coca-Cola gave away an average of 265 frozen bottles an hour, the company says. Here’s how they did it: “Micro-filtered water” is poured into silicone molds, then frozen to -13°F. The ice bottles are shipped empty; servers fill them with soda right before handing them over. (So in fact it’s more like a bottle-shaped glass.) To prevent your delicate fingers from getting stuck to the ice, each bottle is wrapped with a branded elastic band, which Coca-Cola hopes you’ll wear as a bracelet after you’re done with your drink. That’s one way for the company to make the most of this marketing effort.

Milka | Last Square


French customers of Milka chocolate recently got a disappointing surprise. When they opened their candy bars, they discovered one of the squares was missing. The culprit wasn’t a sneaky kid or supermarket mouse but the candy brand itself, which used the clever stunt to communicate its brand message: “Dare to Be Tender.”

Milka tapped Buzzman Paris for the “Last Bar” campaign. The effort centered on the notion that the last piece of chocolate is always the best one, so to encourage French consumers to be more “tender,” the brand was giving them the opportunity to give that very special morsel to someone they cared about. The wrapper just above that missing piece was printed with a special code, which people could enter online to have the chocolate bite delivered to the loved one of their choice. Or, if they weren’t as loving as the brand hoped them to be–they could always send it to themselves.

Astra | Bottletheatre

The Astra Bottletheatre.
Astra is Hamburg’s most loved beer and anti-premium. Its heart beats for its home turf, the red light district of St. Pauli. It was about time to solve one of St. Pauli’s biggest problems: The district has developed into a run-down area — littered with piles of empty bottles.
To change that, Astra simply changed the value of an empty bottle, giving people a good reason to clean up the streets themselves.
