ANDY Awards 2015 Call for Entry videos seek your bravest work

Disposing bombs, operating on someone's brain or fight fires may be tough jobs to do. But it's nothing compared to being an Ad Man.

Wieden + Kennedy made 3 funny videos for the ANDY Awards 2015 Call for Entries. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist who would choose the bombs over an advertising job trying to make killer social media campaigns in a week. A surgeon and a firefighter who also point out the stress and the courage it takes to conceptualize and run a campaign.

Beside the three films there is a series of display and social media ads. You can also take an interactive quiz on the website

Mercedes E-Class Estate: The Transportable Banner

When Mercedes asked BBDO to make a bannering campaign that shows how spacious the new E-Class Estate is, they came up with a smart idea that transformed the classic banner into a medium that proves Mercedes’ promise.

BBDO introduced the Transportable Banner. A banner showing the E-Class Estate, which is suddenly being ripped out of its framework by two guys and transported to the E-Class Estate parked right behind it. Finally the two guys store it nicely in the trunk of the E-Class Estate.

Burger King: Fight to skip the line mobile game

The problem: Burger King went back in France after 15 years and due to the very few restaurants opened so far, people complain on the social media as they line for hours before ordering.

The solution: Buzzman invented the first mobile game ever created to cut the line.

Users can download the application (, defend their menu against swarm of hands and win the Fast Pass. The Fast Pass is valid for 15 minutes, and will allow the user to skip the line just by showing his screen to a cashier.

FAR CRY 4: What are you made of?

For the European launch of Far Cry 4, Grey Paris creates a unique interactive campaign with 42 million possible routes, offering a completely different experience from one user to another.

Grey Paris has created 1 digital platform with 4 interactive rites of passage and 42 millions possibilities:
- A deadly face-to-face with « An eye for an eye »
- An impenetrable mind maze with « Rabbit hole »
- A hypnotic trance with « Mind Blossom »
- A blindfolded sound chase with « Escape »

Each rite is composed of interactive films in which the user has only a few seconds to make a decision and get out of the extreme situation he is trapped in. Each choice he makes triggers another sequence of events, pushing the user to make another choice and so on and so forth...

At the end of each rite, the user’s choices are analysed with a specific algorithm that determines his personality based on 5 criteria: toughness, violence, bravery, endurance and wisdom.

High-end cinematographic quality within the digital world. The numbers are staggering.
It took one year to conceive, develop and produce this campaign. In order to create a highly immersive experience, Grey Paris worked with the production company Stink & Stink digital and film director Nieto who brings all his cinematographic experience in this project. They shot over 168 different video sequences that, combined with the 42 million routes possible, reach the gold number of 100 days required to watch the videos from each of these routes.

1 new rite of passage will be revealed every week, starting today, October  22nd and ending November 12th, two weeks before the launch of FC4 on November 18th

IKEA: Halloween. A tribute to Shining.

You've got to love Ikea's Halloween tribute to Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic, The Shining.

We see a little boy bicycling late at night in the corridors of an empty IKEA store just like in Shining. Full of references (skeletons, music, flashing lights etc), the spot reveals the IKEA's late night shopping hours. See it twice to see how many you will find.

Reborn to be alive: If you are going to do stupid things, at least become an organ donor and save up to 8 lives.

Every year people die waiting for an organ donation. The waiting list is too long. The donor list too short. The Belgian non-profit organisation Re-born To Be Alive wants to raise awareness about organ donation and make the topic more easy to discuss.

Duval Guillaume came up with this campaign for Re-born To Be Alive. It wants to make people aware of the fact that one donor can save up to eight lives. The brain however cannot be donated. And in some cases that’s a good thing.

Plan Parent: Too young to watch. Old enough to get married.

The numbers are staggering. Every minute 27 girls are forced into marriage. That’s 2 every second. Child marriage is a global problem.

The practice violates girls’ human rights, curtails their education, harms their health and sharply constrains their future.

Plan Belgium with the help of Duval Guillaume agency helped these girls to take over ‘age warnings’ in prime time on national television, in movie theaters and in youtube trailers and explain the problem. In these touching movies, 3 separate girls tell an emotional story and paint a true picture about this horrible tradition.

The start of a solution is simple: more education. Getting girls to school means delaying marriage. And by becoming a Plan parent that’s exactly what you’re helping to achieve.

Little girls hijack age warnings during prime time

North Face: Never Stop Exploring

Imagine going for shopping and while you are checking the clothes, the floor starts to shift and disappearing into the wall. This is the situation the customers of a North Face pop-up store in Korea had to deal with. The walls of the store were rock climbing walls and the customers had to hang on to the footholds or fall down. Then a North Face jacket appeared hanging from the center of the ceiling and customers had 30 seconds to decide if they would take a leap and grab the jacket before falling down.

A great stunt from Innored that delivers North Face's 'Never stop exploring' message.

Bosch glides through your home one night... to vacuum

Bosch's employees break in your house, at night, while you sleep, to vacuum! Yes, you've read that right. BBDO Belgium challenge was to prove that the new Bosch Relaxx'x ProSilence vacuum is incredibly quiet so they send 2 guys to open two houses and vacuum them without waking the occupants. Then they went back in the morning to show to the house owners what they've done. Definitely a new approach to vacuum advertising.

Ikea: There's no bed like home

A dreamy spot from Ikea with A woman falling from the sky in various beds until she wakes up in her own. The wonderful voice over is actually a reading from Shakespeare's The Tempest Act 4, Scene 1, 140.

The "Beds" spot is the third instalment of The Wonderful Everyday campaign which looks at the spaces in the home where our days begin and end: the bedroom and the bathroom. Places that serve our basic everyday needs. They are the private comfort zones in the home where we wake up and get dressed for the day ahead, then undress, recharge and relax in the evening. They are the most essential rooms in the home yet they are often the most neglected.

The Tempest. Act 4, Scene 1, 140. Prospero to Ferdinand:

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air.
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself—
Yea, all which it inherit—shall dissolve,
And like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

If you don't live under a rock you most certainly have seen Tatia Pilieva's "First Kiss" for Wren. Now, the director asked strangers to undress each other and get in bed. Nothing else. The story goes in a similar way. People are feeling awkward a first but as they begin undressing things heat up.

Tatia Pilieva made this film in collaboration with Showtime for the promotion of the sevond season of Masters of Sex.

Hyundai Genesis: The Empty Car Convoy

Very impressive stunt filmed at Hyundai's Mojave Desert test track, to showcase the new technologies of the new Genesis 2015.

We see a big truck and 6 cars behind it moving in one lane. 5 of the drivers climb out of the sunroof and make a jump to a moving truck. Stuntman Buddy Joe Hooker stays in the lead car behind the truck. He puts on a blindfold, folds his arms to his chest and he lets ASCC(Advanced Smart Cruise Control), AEB(Automatic Emergency Braking System), and LKAS(Lane Keep Assist System) work their magic when the truck hits the brakes.

This kind of stunts are Volvo's game but Huyndai's Empty Car Convoy will surely be a viral hit.

NAR Mobile: Donor Cable Project

How a mobile company can increase blood donations by 335%?
Y&R Moscow created Donor Cable, a bracelet for Nar Mobile that you can use to donate power from one smartphone to another. The message "Donate energy to save a phone, and donate blood to save a life." urged users to donate blood in order to help kids in Azerbaijan that are born with the blood disorder thalassemia. Azerbaijan is No1 in the world in thalassemia and babies who suffer from it need extensive blood transfusions.

I would say kudos to the agency and the client for the Donor Cable bracelet for a true life-saving project. BUT why are they going to Cannes with this idea since the same one is already been done and with the same name by Leo Burnett. See the case study below the credits.

JCDecaux: Google Street View Unpaid Bills

A huge bill to your client make be the answer to get that meeting you wanted. This is what JCDecaux together with BBDO Belgium did. They sent 53 of Belgium’s biggest advertisers a framed picture of their campaign on Google Street view. They attached a letter and a detailed invoice to inform them that their billboard had been visible on Google Street View for years and years without being paid for. Instead of paying of course they just asked from the advertisers a meeting, so they could listen to their sales team about the digital technologies they provide.

To address the problem of Drunk Sleeping, the bar chain Yaocho with the help of Ogilvy & Mather and Geometry Global, turned sleeping drunks into human billboards against excessive drinking. All they needed was duck tape, printed headlines, logos and a hashtag. See the case study.
