Melt the ad and freeze the audience!

This is an extremely creative idea created by Greenpeace. Greenpeace is well known for the chaos they create, but this is actually one of their tamer approaches. However, the fact that it is tame does not mean that it’s not effective and also totally interesting. And the fact that they can come up with a unique ad about global warming when these campaigns have been done to death is equally impressive.

The idea:

The viewer walks by the billboard to find a frozen block of ice on the wall. However, throughout the day, the sun melts the ice to expose the copy behind the ice on the board. Also, the ice water drips down into a model of a cityscape, drowning the city in water. This melting ad will definitely makes some passers by freeze in the tracks. Very clever Greenpeace!

PS: I also really dig installation pieces, so this is really cool to me.

Do Not Pass Go (without noticing this)!

I came across this piece of street art at boingboing.net. It is a piece from Monopoly painted on the sidewalk. Its just  so beautifully obvious, but I am not sure if anyone has ever really done a full campaign like this before. This could be a great idea for a campaign for the right company, or just for Parker Brothers. Not sure if anyone has done it before though.
