Burger King runs weather activated DOOH campaign

Through analysing 3 years of Burger King ice-cream sales data, it was established that when the temperature reaches 20 degrees this results in an ice cream sales uplift. Utilising the Liveposter platform and a live weather trigger allowed Posterscope to switch copy in real time from a “cold creative” to a “hot creative”. In addition Liveposter also enabled Burger King to display dynamic real time content referencing, for example, the local temperature, the location of each site and reference the time of day.  The campaign ran through July-September across London Digital 6sheets, Roadside 48sheets and Mall D6s.

Cadbury's Introduce the World's First Flavour-Matching Facebook-Powered Vending Machine

To celebrate Cadbury’s wide flavor range and unique selection of sweets, Australia’s leading chocolate brand created the Joy Generator- a vending machine that dispenses chocolate flavors based on a person’s Facebook likes and interests.
Users simply walk up to the machine, sign into Facebook, and are served a free chocolate bar with a flavor unique to their personality. Customers then take a picture with their flavor in the brand’s social media enabled picture booth.
Users get matched up with one of twelve flavors. Those who register as energetic should expect to receive a “Crunchie” bar. For the exotic posters and frequent travelers, the “Turkish Delight” may be a better fit.
This experiential stunt created with Red Agency is part of Cadbury’s integrated brand strategy. The campaign includes a series of new packaging, outdoor activities, digital executions, engaging social content, and additional experiential activations- all of which communicate Cadbury’s dedication to flavor innovation.
The online profiles created by social media users demonstrate the diverse range of interests, beliefs, and perceptions that society has. Cadbury’s Joy Generator acknowledges those characteristics on an individual scale, and thus establishes strong emotional bonds with potential consumers.

Wrigley’s Coffee Cup Sleeve gives Customers Clean Teeth on the Go

South African coffee seller,Seattle Coffee Co. has teamed up Wrigley’s Orbit gum to help customers start the day energized and fresh, ready to face whatever challenges arise.
With the help of South African advertising agency DDB and design studio Tag 8, Seattle Coffee Co is adding new coffee cup sleeves with individual samples of Orbit’s gum. The campaign, exclusive to South Africa, is called “Coffee On The Go, Clean Teeth On The Go.” Through this direct-marketing technique, Wrigley is trying to bridge the gap between coffee drinkers and gum chewers.
The design by Tag 8 features the gum integrated directly into the sleeve, with a doodle of a man reaching for it with one hand, a cup of coffee in the other. The concept also makes the combination of the gum and coffee less jarring, since it can be handed off to a customer singlehandedly, rather than adding it later just for the sample to be forgotten or lost in a bag or pocket.
