On Valentine’s Day, would you take your fiancee to a fast-food?

Would you take your fiancée to a fast-food on Valentine’s Day? Definitely not. Unless it's a transformed Burger King with valets, violinist and waiters.

Burger King wanted to link the love of the Whopper with love itself. So, Buzzman created Whooper Valentine. An initiative which gives a chance to the biggest Burger King fans to surprise their fiancée on Valentine’s Day. On this special occasion, the Champs Elysées restaurant was completely transformed with valets, violinist and waiters and 10 couples had the chance to enjoy their whopper.

Whopper Valentine. Would you take your fiancee to a fast-food on Valentine’s Day ?

"Playthings" safety PSA is charming yet dead-serious at the same time

Evolve's "Playthings", the most viewed gun safety PSA in history, reaching more than 7 million people, gets a print campaign that further illustrates the importance of keeping guns locked up when ever-so-curious children are at home.

The charmingly provocative ads feature kids playing with all manner of taboo household items – condoms, mom’s lacey lingerie, maxi pads, sex toys and tampons – with the simple reminder: ‘If they find it, they’ll play with it.’  That’s an embarrassing prospect if kids find a lacey bra, but it’s a terrifying one if they find an unlocked gun.

Rebecca Bond, Evolve’s co-founder said: “Owning a firearm, and living with them in our communities, comes with the heavy responsibility of safety. Let’s face it, kids find everything.  Some things are simply embarrassing.  Some things are potentially lethal and there is absolutely no do-over.  Hoping that kids exercise good judgment – or are even capable of doing so – is not a bulletproof plan for any parent. We have to keep finding more ways for everyone to take on these conversations; ensuring that no other lives are tragically impacted by lax and avoidable safety behaviors.  Wouldn’t that be amazing?”

Jesus and His Marketing Stunts in a great self promo

Advertising stunts have gone from obscure operations to mainstream media. Clicks and shares are now conventional media measures. Stunts are harder to write, shoot, manage, produce and edit than traditional 30 second television spots.

To showcase its unique production and post-production offerings, 1one created a promotional video in partnership with integrated advertising agency lg2 that gives viewers a seat at an iconic brand planning session led by the most famous advertising client of all time, Jesus. The table talk fictitiously reveals how 1One helped the Messiah top his previous branded efforts — no small task when you’re trying to outdo giving sight to the blind or turning water into wine.

“With the evolution of media, and the viewer becoming more intelligent (and cynical) towards traditional advertising, we need to create stunts that can't look like anything short of amazing,” says Jean-René Parenteau, executive producer and associate, 1one. “When it comes to doing that, you want an expert, not someone who's just hoping they can pull it off. This has been our focus for the past five years. Stunts aren't a new trend for us. It's what we've always done and focused our expertise towards.”
