Paid for in meat

Agency Network: 
July 2014


Montana’s surprised real businesses in Toronto by simply walking in and offering a plate of BBQ meat in exchange for goods and services. Over two days of bartering and shooting, they received a psychic reading, an MMA lesson, a manicure, a yoga lesson, men’s skin care products, some new shoes, a haircut, a bouquet of flowers, an area rug, a massage and even a real tattoo. But the bartering didn’t end there. The entire production crew and the advertising agency agreed to take part of their payment in BBQ.

Digital advertisement created by One Twenty Three West, Canada for Montana's Cookhouse, within the category: Food.

Cute, although we've seen this kind of barter trade idea done before with The Heineken Passport.
