Sao Paulo Clothing Store Uses Mannequins Drones to Advertise Black Friday Deals

You may find this advertising initiative a bit creepy, innovative or both, depending on how your feel about headless mannequins floating outside your high-rise office window.

Camisaria Colombo, a famous Brazilian shirt store wanted to advertise their Black Friday deals to businessmen who don’t have time to leave their offices.

Sao Paulo agency Salles Chemistri had the answer: replace the heads of lightweight mannequins with helicopter drones and fly them up to the windows of office buildings in the city’s business district.

Parking Lot Installation Turns Drivers’ Everyday Cars Into Hot Wheels

Hot Wheels my Ride

Since their introduction by Mattel in 1967, more than 4 billion Hot Wheels cars have been produced, finding their way into the hands of children and avid adult collectors alike. While most of the common series of cars can be found for under $2, the highest price ever paid for a Hot Wheel was when a collector paid nearly $72,000 for an extremely rare 1969 pink Volkswagen Beach Bomb.

To help people envision their everyday car as a Hot Wheels car, agency AGE Isobar created a cool installation installation in a shopping centre parking lot in Sao Paulo.

Drivers could drive their car directly into a life-size replica of the Hot Wheels plastic blister package, and have their picture captured and shared on Facebook. The production crew captured images of nearly 3000 cars in just a week.

São Paulo Bar Targets Drinking Drivers With 'The Responsible Sip'

Blá Bar Responsible Sip

Drunk driving is a huge issue no matter where you live. In Brazil, harsher traffic laws were introduced a few years ago but unfortunately did little to decrease the number of drunk drivers on the roads there.

São Paulo’s Blá Bar came up with a way to drive home the message to their customers, ‘The Responsible Sip’. Drivers were identified by the parking staff as they entered the bar, and when they ordered a beer it arrived at the table in a special glass printed with a series of humorous quotes of how the evening might proceed if they continued to drink more alcohol.

While most drivers switched to non-alcohol drinks for the remainder of the evening, others continued to drink. Those drivers were given the number for a taxi with their bill.

The stunt was created by QG Propaganda, Brazil.
