Clever Guerrilla Campaigns

Feed South Africa

I do not usually like intrusive ads, but I make an exception in this case.

The idea of putting decals showing little kids reaching out inside shopping carts is both brilliant and effective. The accompanying message is, "See how easy feeding the hungry can be?"

As we stock on luxuries and indulge ourselves, we need to remember that helping poor kids can be as easy as donating a can of food.

Give Them the Damn Baked Beans!

Fun Heinz Baked Beans Ads

"There's only one cure."

I love this campaign by Tan Advertising promoting Heinz Baked Beans. Food items have gone bazooks and ended up in an Asylem. I feel particularly bad for the poor toast.
