The Fairtrade Foundation: Farley & Bell

This hard-hitting stunt from AMVBBDO demonstrates how people are often seduced by nice branding and don't think to question where their food might come from.

Salespeople from a fake new brand called Farley & Bell approach people on the street asking them to sign up to a new fruit and veg box scheme. What they didn't expect was that these fresh and cheap fruit boxes would be delivered to their front doors by exhausted and struggling children.

Then they learn that Farley & Bell is actually a fake brand, created to highlight the exploitation of farmers and child labour in countries such as Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire by food companies.

“Sometimes you just don’t think what’s behind the cheap price. You get drawn in by a deal and pretty packaging,” says one shocked buyer.

U.K.'s "Fairtrade Fortnight," is running from Feb. 27- March 12 and the stunt took place on the streets of West London.

Jonathan Smith, head of campaigns at the Fairtrade Foundation said: "Whether in the UK or in Malawi, no one deserves to be short-changed for a hard day’s work. Farmers get a better deal when they sell their crops on Fairtrade terms. Through Fairtrade, farmers can invest in better farming practice, earn more money for their crops, and make sure their children are fed and can go to school. Communities can also invest in clean water and clinics, improving everyone’s health."

Air France "French Kiss & Ride" by Duval Guillaume

Saying goodbye to your loved once at the airport is always a very intense moment. However, long queues and the necessity to be there on time prevent you from doing just that. But not when you live in Belgium and travel with Air France. To emphasize the convenience of travelling with Air France from Bruxelles-Midi, Duval Guillaume developed the campaign “French Kiss & Ride”: Kiss & Ride, the French way.

Air France French Kiss & Ride


The French Kiss & Ride is, first of all, a spot in the underground parking of the train station: parking is free so you can say goodbye properly - totally different from any other standard Kiss & Ride zone, where you can only stay for about 2 minutes.

To make your goodbye even more memorable, Duval Guillaume created a special spot in the train station. Here everyone could take the time to say goodbye to their loved ones, before taking the train to a faraway destination. The goodbye was filmed, and the movie was sent to your mailbox as a souvenir, and to share on social media. In and around Bruxelles-Midi different posters and digital banners showed the way to the French Kiss & Ride spot. Influencers and travel bloggers were invited to share pictures and movies with their followers. No doubt: from now on there is time to say "Au revoir, mon amour!" before you leave for a flight.

84 Lumber Super Bowl Commercial - The Entire Journey

The most controversial spot from Super Bowl 51 comes from 84 Lumber. Fox didn't allow them to run the entire spot so they aired half and directed people to their website to see the rest.

It's about a Mexican mother, traveling with her daughter through the desert in order to make it to the US but eventually, they end us facing Trump's wall. Throughout the journey, the little girl collects pieces of fabric and stitches them together to make an American flag. The two immigrants don't lose hope, they don't turn back but instead, they find a big door and walk through it. The end line reads "The will to succeed is always welcome here".

Rob Schapiro, the chief client officer at Brunner, the agency behind the spot, told Washington Post "Ignoring the border wall and the conversation around immigration that’s taking place in the media and at every kitchen table in America just didn't seem right. If everyone else is trying to avoid controversy, isn't that the time when brands should take a stand for what they believe in?"
