The CampaignIt doesn’t really come as a surprise if we state that Belgium’s National Day is kind of the same every year: the King’s speech. Formal national ceremonies. And the national military parade. However, this year, few minutes after the military parade somebody posted an instant hit on Facebook: a Belgian tank and its soldiers passing by the Drive in at Quick to get some fries and burgers! The Facebook post quickly conquered the internet. It soon became the main topic on all National TV channels and in all national newspapers (before conquering international media like ‘Daily Mail’ and ‘Viral Hog’ later that week).
Creative ExecutionSo, what happened? Just a few hungry soldiers after the military parade? Of course not. We hacked National Day by orchestrating a tank and a few military ‘actors’ to pass by the Quick Drive in. We asked an ‘arbitrary’ civilian to film the scene, post it to Facebook while tagging Quick Belgium, of course. And off it went. Quick re-posted few hours later to make it go even faster. So, while all brands were trying to get attention on Belgian National day with some beautiful ads in the newspaper, the Belgian iconic brand Quick was actually the only brand that was talked about, via the power of social and content. The next day Quick obviously claimed it was an advertising stunt. The audience engaged and loved it.
3.015.273 combined views (original post + Quick re-post) A combined reach of over 42 million people. 30.075 likes Thousands of comments. (93% positive) National Day became the day with the biggest search queries on ‘Quick’ from 2015 to date. A 268% uplift to the Quick website.
We knew that Facebook post would come and that Quick would be tagged in it. So, we were all set to put some paid behind the re-post of the original Facebook post. By doing so, reaching our core target audience.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work.
The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.
PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
