Bloody Ad Age

… won’t let you embed videos on a website but it’s worth following this link to see world’s best practice in viral outdoor advertising. To promote Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America series, they parodied Trump’s Build That Wall meme by building (overnight) large pop-up walls in front of three Mexican restaurants.

Who cares that they had to pull them down straight away; footage captured and shared, and millions in TV and Internet exposure in the bank. Simple formula: mix current affairs and humour, snapshot it and reap the benefits.

Bankwest outdoor sign: We're a fan of everything

Latest:  oOh!’s newest digital billboard in the Perth CBD. Now over 260 screens across Australia. This large format site is oOh!’s third in the CBD. It really re-enforces their OOH pre-eminence in Perth. Elder St is west facing and captures east bound traffic from Subiaco and West Perth on to the Freeway South entrance, as well as Elder St traffic heading towards St George’s Terrace. oOh!’s network continues to expand nationally, in retail centres, airports, office towers, cafés, gyms, venues and universities.

Real time traffic data that makes a point

Everyone in New York thinks that it’s quicker to go to JFK than EWR (Newark Liberty International Airport) but it ain’t the case. United wanted people to choose EWR, its New Jersey hub, so they sent real time traffic data to digital displays on New York taxis, which of course is how lots of people get to the airport.

Taxi sign: Here to JFK 1:30 Here to EWR 0:44
