People, Not Symbols : Leo Burnett Israel

For December 3rd “International Day of Persons with Disabilities”, Access Israel –
the NPO whose mission it is to promote accessibility for people with disabilities in Israel,
is replacing all disabled parking spot signs with the pictures of real people.

You’ve probably seen it happen a zillion times and you’ve maybe even done it yourself once or twice. By that I mean park in a spot for disabled people.

Yeah, we’ve all seen it happen before: a car blitzing into a parking spot reserved for the disabled only for its driver to step out seconds later on two perfectly functioning legs. Sure, if you ask the driver he’ll probably have a whole battery of excuses to go with his blatant misbehavior and disrespect. Anything ranging from: “I’ll only be a second”, “I’m just picking up my wife” to “What’s the rush? You’re sitting in a wheelchair anyway!” and our personal favorite: “I DIDN’T SEE THE SIGN”.

Leo Burnett Tel Aviv Presents: The Peace Blanket

Summer is here, and with it comes the time-old war on the air conditioning:
He’s hot, she’s cold, he’s sweating, she’s freezing.

A battle that rages on all night as the air conditioner is turned on and off.

So Samsung invented the perfect solution so no one needs to fight at night:

half duvet and half pique

Burger King Presents The NafNa Phone by Leo Burnett Israel

Israeli Independence Day is also known as ‘National BBQ Day’, because everyone – and we mean e v e r y o n e – is gathering around their grills for a celebration.

Really. True story J. Come to Israel on that day and you will see people fanning their grill everywhere: from national parks and the beachfront sands right down to traffic islands left for those who simply didn’t get up early enough to capture a spot. (Seriously, just google “Israel independence day BBQ” and you’ll see things here are mental!)

So as the flamed grill pros BURGER KING are, they decided to help everyone get ready for the holiday, and created an interactive mobile phone pre-loader ad experience which invited people to practice their BBQ fanning skills… with their phone!

The higher the flame they managed to fan up– the higher the discount they got on a delicious grill flamed Whopper Meal.

And if you want to try to ‘LeNafNef’ yourself, here is a link to our interactive ad: http://camp.spotad.co/rch/burger_king0417/index.html

Samsung Presents : the Smart Billboard by Leo Burnett Tel Aviv

One of the advantages of the Samsung Gear S3 watch is its design: it looks nothing like a smart watch.
In fact watch purists and design aficionados alike will most likely agree it is one hell of a beautiful and smart design.

That’s why to communicate this design edge in a smart and notable way, we launched a bus poster campaign under a fake brand name which looked like any other watch advertising campaign you may have ever seen…that is, until we brought the posters to life.

Leveraging the everyday situation of waiting for the bus – we built a smart billboard that could communicate with commuters waiting for their ride.

The billboard featured a male model striking a typical “watch advertising” pose – the only difference being that the model was actually eavesdropping on commuters’ conversations and his picture came to life every time people struck a subject they could use the smart watch for. That way, as the model responded to the situation and interacted with commuters, he got to show off the watch’s innovative features to the great surprise and delight of passengers whose response made blatantly clear that they never for a moment saw it coming. Using a simple a smart billboard, we proved to them beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Samsung Gear S3 was not only the smartest but probably also the best looking watch around.

Samsung Gear S3: A smart watch that looks like a… watch!

Samsung Gaming Marathon

If you’ve ever participated in a marathon, you’ll know that at every marathon event they use the chest chip and stepping pad combo as a system for measuring a runner’s results. So this year, to capitalize on the massive participation in the Samsung Marathon – Israel’s largest running event – we decided to HACK THE RUN FOR GOOD by turning the marathon course into a gaming track and the runners into players.

How? By adding more stepping pads along the running course and turning them into game coin collection points.

Every time a runner steps on one of the pads, he collects a coin which is registered in real time via his chest number chip, added to our database and turned into real money. At the end of the marathon, the sum accumulated is then donated on behalf of the runner to the charity of his choice.

From our preliminary data, participation numbers are set to hit a new record high with 40,000 runners attending from all over the world (from over 40 different countries) so we’re talking about lots of money that will be making a difference for many people. Now that’s worth running for!
