Pirate Recruitment

Agency Network: 
Published/Aired: 
August 2012

Description

Ogilvy Brussels was looking for a new webdesigner with fresh ideas. We know that unemployed webdesigners can't afford the crazily expensive application suite they need to work and they may be tempted to download it through a not so legal way. We uploaded a file supposed to provide the essential application suite on many pirate sharing websites. When webdesigners downloaded our file, they discovered that the application suite was not in the package. Instead, we gave them something much better: an exciting job opportunity at our agency.

One can see comments, number of seeders and leechers on almost all file sharing websites. I doubt a lot of people would seed such a fake file and that ˝highly talented˝ webdesigner would fall for it.
