Scotch-Brite:  The lint bus station
Scotch-Brite Ambient Ad -  The lint bus station

Description

The ordinary fluorescent lamps in City Lights were replaced by blacklight lamps which became a vital part of the idea. In the dark, not only the image became visible to the spectator, the blacklight also created an unusual and unexpected side-effect - dirt such as fluff, dust, lint and animal hair became visible on people's clothes. The big Scotch-Brite Lint Roller in the foreground reminds us that there's a simple and effective solution. A clever idea, which makes advertising come alive.

Ambient advertisement created by Grey, Germany for Scotch-Brite, within the category: House, Garden.

The embarrassment factor must have been high here. I am sure many switched detergents after seeing this in action.

Yeah...that's pretty clever. Hard to place it everywhere, but still a pretty great idea. Good thinking.

Sadly, this will only work to people close to the station. No effect on people in cars. And what about when it's daylight??

It's a nice idea but sometimes you just gotta let them go.

How are people gonna guess that it is going to show all the shit on ur clothes wen u get near it.... I think a strong tagline would make a big difference!!!! Why would i even bother going and cheking it out till i dont even get a hint.

Agree with the_lizard_king. Plus, never write anything like this in your presentation: "A clever idea, which makes advertising come alive." EVER!
