The experiential outdoor campaign forms part of Colgate’s “share a smile” project to raise money for the children’s charity, Barnado’s.
Ocean Outdoor’s premium Eat Street full motion screen dominates the main pedestrian walkway into Westfield London and, as an extension to their existing campaign, allowed Colgate to invite hundreds of Saturday shoppers to smile on camera and then almost immediately make their star appearance on the giant billboard which is normally the preserve of models, recording stars and big brand advertisers.
Colgate aims to capture one million smiles this summer and has pledged to donate £100,000 to Barnado’s when it reaches that target.
Sam Coleman, Communications Director, MEC Global, said: “Colgate’s most recent campaign required members of the public to interact with the campaign. Ocean’s Eat Street digital platform enabled almost immediate interaction to occur, creating an exciting proposition for consumers to get involved and therefore enhancing engagement with the brand itself. It was a great success.”
The campaign was created by VML London, digital was planned by Kinetic and managed by Grand Visual. Photographs uploaded by people to Colgate’s Facebook page are also being selected and displayed on digital outdoor screen across London, Birmingham and Liverpool.
