Here’s the highly acclaimed Clash Royale mobile video game ad. When you play the game, its 100% flat. Straight 2D. The 3D rendering in the ad is therefore misleading in the extreme but no-one seems too bothered. 20 million plus votes on the app store.
Fashion brand Balenciaga created a $2300 handbag in the style of an Ikea plastic bag. Ikea responded. Text at bottom spells out how to identify the original IKEA FRAGA bag, e.g. ‘are you able to fold it to the size of a small purse?’, and does it cost 99 cents?
Great response. Mucho social media. Win for both brands.
