Carlsberg’s Rosh Hashanah Record Breaking Post by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

As you know New Year (Rosh Hashana in Israel) is a hectic time on social media feeds. Greetings and wishes abound and if you’ve got a Facebook account, chances are you’ll be checking in more than usual to see exactly who sent you wishes, sent your friends wishes and no less important didn’t send you wishes at all. But Carlsberg doesn’t compromise on the type of wishes it sends.

So when Facebook announced a couple of weeks back it was implementing its live photo technology, we immediately understood that together with the vertical screen, we held at our fingertips the power to implement a new type of storytelling through the mobile feed by combining a short movie with live interaction.

Carlsberg created ‘The Best Way to Open the New Year’ – an interactive ‘Live Photo’ based post that asks social media aficionados to ‘Press Here and not Let Go’. Those who did, (live photo tech only works on mobile) were delighted to see they’d just set in motion a rube machine that ultimately delivers Carlsberg’s suggestion to open a great new year with a nice pint.

Surfers loved our playful interactive experienced and engaged with our innocuous little post like never before. Engagement rate reached 13% – an all-time high for the brand whose record stood until then unbeaten at 9% J

Latet ‘Skip A Meal’ by BBR Saatchi and Saatchi

It’s September and the High Jewish Holiday season is here. Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkoth will all be taking place in the space of just two weeks. And for those of you who have never been to Israel during the high holidays, you should know they are the ultimate ‘get-together-time’ and the ultimate cause for uniting around a table filled with goodies.

But unfortunately many Israeli families do not have the means to celebrate. They simply can’t afford the food and are forced to skip a meal. That was the exact message Latet – an Israeli organization that distributes food packages to the needy – wanted to communicate to the public. So it decided to capitalize on a unifying behavior that characterizes all internet users: ad skipping.

People who chose to skip our mouthwatering decoy pre-roll ads, were served up with the following message: “You skipped a meal out of choice but thousands of people in Israel skip it because they have no choice. Make someone’s holiday. Donate a meal”

A launch campaign for Super-Pharm’s second ‘Beauty Vlogger Academy’ by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

Super-Pharm, the leading beauty cosmetics retailer in Israel launched its second “Beauty Vlogger Academy”. An academy which will form, shape and instruct Israel’s next generation of beauty vloggers.

Unlike in other parts of the world, where there are many YouTubers women can turn to for advice on how to create the latest look, in Israel there are but a handful of beauty YouTubers. That’s why Super-Pharm decided to fill in the gap and launch a search for Israel’s next big “Beauter”.

The commercial we created for the launch of the search, was inspired by the shape of the YouTube video frame and took several months of planning. The reason is that most of the action revolves around seven different frames which were hand crafted out of paper and cardboard. To complicate things further, we added to each frame elements such as cogs, folding concertinas, led lights and more which made the production challenging as they had to be hand operated on the set and the actress had to react to them on cue.

But hey, who wouldn’t go the extra mile for aesthetics right!?

Mazda : Don’t Scroll And Drive by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

“Distracted driving” is what they call it.

It’s a treacherous innocuous name – meant to cover anything from taking your eyes off the road to check your baby hasn’t chocked on his pacifier,
right down to taking your eyes off the road to scroll down your Facebook feed and check who’s liked your latest profile pic.
And let’s be honest, that happens way more often than anything else.
But worst of all it’s killing people. Lots of them.

That’s why Mazda decided to launch a new campaign: smack in the middle of people’s social feed,  right as they were scrolling down it.

Watch the Facebook special post here:

And take it from us: when you drive, leave the phone alone.

BBR Saatchi & Saatchi Proudly presents a Presidential Charter

In a bold move spearheaded by Baumann Ber Rivnay / Saatchi & Saatchi,  Israeli President Mr. Reuven Rivlin together with children puts the Israeli advertising industry’s typecasting practices to shame and urges it to change for the benefit of all Israeli society.

Israel is a melting pot. A country of immigrants who came from many different countries and cultures. A country where East meets West. A country where Ashkenazi Jews (from western countries), Sephardic Jews (from Arab countries), Ethiopian Jews, Arabs and Christian coexist but do not always do so on an equal standing. And while Israel is a country loaded with baggage on discrimination (having experienced it firsthand),  we are ashamed to say we are a country in which bias and prejudice still exists.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in Israeli advertising where the white Caucasian, blond, blue-eyed stereotype still reigns supreme.
Where portrayals of single sex families still are very rare and where you will be hard pushed to find a black Ethiopian kid
starring in a commercial let alone an Arab – unless it’s for purposes of typecasting him in various unflattering roles.

Not surprising if you look at casting calls issued by local talent agencies; stuff that will quite literally make your hair stand on edge.

But the job of advertisers, in our minds, is not only to reflect a country’s culture and values. Quite the opposite.
Advertisers have a responsibility to help shape the culture they live in and mold people’s behavior for the better.
The way we see things at BBR Saatchi & Saatchi, the industry has a proactive role to play in levelling the playing ground, abolishing prejudice and blowing up the glass ceiling.

Love Comes In All Shapes And Sizes : Super Pharm by BBR Saatchi & Saatchi

Ask any parent, and they’ll tell you parenting is a very challenging task, especially when babies are involved. No matter who you are, whether you’re a Mommy or Daddy, whether you have any experience or not. It’s going be tough.

So why is it, that in a country like Israel where over 42% of families are defined as “alternative” when we watch commercials, the families portrayed in them are consistently monochromatic, traditional, heterosexual families? Shouldn’t our ads be a reflection of the wonderful diversity that is out there? Are the love, family life and issues a gay couple faces any less valid than that of a traditional couple? Super-Pharm and its private label brand “Life Baby” didn’t think so.

That’s why when “Life Baby” launched their new campaign, they decided they wanted every type of family in Israel to feel included. To do so, they asked one simple question, “What’s the hardest thing about being a parent?”

The commercial we created is a first in the Israeli media as it portrays how non-conventional families all ultimately deal with the same challenges. A gutsy move for any marketer, this is especially remarkable for a marketer as big as Super-Pharm in a country like Israel, where religious concerns, taboos and traditional views still reign strong and supreme and where consumer protest are not unknown to happen .
