TV3 Direct Ad -  Cake


Media people get all the free things. So a yummy cake turning up for them for morning tea wasn't that unusual. But when they started to cut slices, they hit something rather hard. To promote the return of the popular TV3 show Prison Break, we have hidden a file within the cake.Once the file was removed, they were left with a simple message "Prison Break returns 19th Nov TV3".

old idea

Not sure what taste it will leave in the mouth. Otherwise it's a good idea. As good as the ice-cream idea for some toothpaste.

I think this is a great idea, and i don't know where you see the similarity with colgate besides it's anything inside anything.
Maybe i wouldn't eat the cake but i'd appreciate the creative here.
The old trick of the lime inside the cake works perfectly here.
