Hyper realistic curved screen

Just when we thought the TV screens were sitting nice and flat against our walls, the industry introduces curved screens – fuckers. So, Samsung advertises its brand new curved TV; “Curved UHD TV” – through a customized spectacular! And apparently it has a very realistic screen. How to advertise very realistic? That’s right.

Tossing Royal Dwarves

We’re pretty sure that the RVD (Royal Propaganda Service) will not be amused by this ad. After all, tossing princesses is definitely not something to be promoted. Then again, if your name is Kingsday and you’ve watched the Wolf of Wall Street a few too many times, this just might be the perfect activity on… More.

In case of love at first sight

“…Break glass plastic” Simple but sweet, this Valentine’s guerrilla campaign by Kingsday for the Flower Council of Holland. That’s how we like advertising.

Missing numbers

Amsterdam is known for its narrow houses and alleys. In the Jordaan there used to be even smaller alleys in between the houses. These alleys often lead to run down accommodation for the poorest of the poor, hidden behind the rows of houses facing the main streets. When the ‘front row’ houses were expanded most… More.

Beer on the go

With the phrase “Beer, even on the go,” Bavaria is the first beer brand in 15 years to sell beer at gas stations along the highway. Of course not their regular label, but their 0.0%. To celebrate this milestone, they’ve partly turned a gas station into a bar and dubbed it “Café A4 West.” Not… More.
