At a time when French attitudes towards consumption are changing, the traditional model of the mass retail sector is losing market share every year. It's within this context that ALDI has committed to a different model revealed in its brand platform last January: "The Place of the new consumer".
A brand platform that embodies ALDI’s new consumption model: small, more responsible, more local, qualitative and price oriented. To promote ALDI’s commitment to no variation of price from one ALDI to another, ALDI displayed the prices of its summer products on billboards posted in the four corners of France, but... not in the right place! Thus, the price of the vanilla-chocolate cone on the billboard posted in Nice was valid at ALDI Nantes, on the other side of France, and vice versa.
The French took to Twitter posting photos of the ALDI geographically misplaced billboards believing that the advertising team did a big mistake: “Why is there an ALDI product price offer advertised for Lille but displayed in Bordeaux?”
All you had to do was read the dubbing strip on the billboard carefully to see that the error was not really a mistake. A simple campaign that plays with consumers and helps them become aware of the misguidance still being shown by some major players in mass distribution.
This professional campaign titled 'Misplaced' was published in France in August, 2020. It was created for the brand: ALDI, by ad agency: Ogilvy Paris. This Outdoor medium campaign is related to the Retail Services industry and contains 3 media assets. It was submitted about 2 years ago.
