Forever 21 and Mediakeys create a fashion event in your city: from the US to Europe and now to Asia.

15th Feb 2012 – Mediakeys has been appointed by Forever 21 HQ in Los Angeles to orchestrate Forever 21 flagship stores openings oversea:  after several cities in Europe, Mediakeys broadcast Forever 21 campaigns on the Asian market with Hong Kong opening as a start.

Media strategy
Mediakeys created and plan “tailor-made” solutions in the following cities: Vienna, Antwerp, Brussels, Barcelona, Hong Kong and more recently in Paris, using a mix of spectacular sites and networks to combine impact and repetition – as well as local medias like radio and cinema for a local print: creating a very frenetic effect all over the world and turning shop openings into a real worldwide fashion events.

The main objective of the fashion brand was to present the arrival of Forever 21 overseas as an exclusive event to efficiently increase the brand awareness and drive as much traffic as possible to the store.

As a full service international agency, Mediakeys also handled the creative adaptation for the whole campaign including production of radio and cinema spots.

Media plan
As an example, in Hong Kong Mediakeys organized a very impactful coverage with a strategic MTR Causeway Bay domination located at the exit of the station and just in front of the store, 20 Emperor bus wraps and a very noticed tramsmart at Yee Wo Street.  The reach was estimated to 445 000 daily eye contacts.

In Paris, Mediakeys broadcasted regional radio spots, tactical cinema advertising, regional print with free daily newspapers as well as OOH in Forever 21 mall and local transportations.

Always taking into account local specificities to put into action global media bias.

Mediakeys challenge
Paul Cahierre, President of Mediakeys, said: “Our team has demonstrated its knowledge of the local markets and capacity to broadcast adapted and effective communication campaigns: worldwide and in a very short notice. A real challenge that we met thanks to our very flexible structure and a good/ reactive relationship with our client in Los Angeles”.

Playboy – Playful Campaigns Around the World – Part II

This is the follow up to Part 1. Today we take a look at Playboy’s OOH campaigns. (Out-Of-Home aka Outdoor advertising).

The first OOH ad below was the creative use of a fabric material that will become semi-transparent whenever it rains or got wet. So when it is dry, it arouses the curiosity of men (of course)

And the best deal have to be after the rain. Because the material allows more transparent views of what’s behind.
Lolz. See below.

Below is another campaign targeting at night crowd where this billboard is located. The lights are positioned in such a manner that when it shone onto the carefully chosen skin tone background, it created a visual illusion from far, do you see what I saw?

The below OOH campaign uses another proven format – the floor sticker. It has the graphic of a woman’s reflection from down up. (The international term is “Upskirt”). Such clever use of location created an impact to the intended consumers.

Lastly we end this series on Playboy, we take a look at other “below the line” advertising used by the brand. Below, you will see a giant beach towel designed to the like of a Playboy Magazine cover. And the user, supposedly a female, will be in a bikini and sunbathing in the center of the towel. A view from the top or far side reviews the user to be the cover girl for the magazine!


HTC Flash – Campaign to the Streets (Featuring Studio Wu)

HTC took their advertising campaign to the streets with Mob Dance for their HTC Flash.

Who would expect HTC to pull this off anyway?

It’s advertising at it best.



I won’t mention the media agency responsible here, but instead, I shall reveal the dance school that created the mob.

Studio Wu@EastPoint Mall! (
Here’s the rehearsal video!


I wonder which advertiser will try this next.

Here’s the serious stuff.
