Fox Crime: Scubs

Taking advantage of the lack of content in the mass media during the summer, we planned to launch a buzz marketing campaign, which could really be on the news. We wanted the promotion of the channel to be done by the mass media. To do this, we had to find a scenario where advertising was totally unexpected. And we thought about using, for the first time in history, the Mediterranean Sea as an advertising means. Is there a bigger format? We built a few dummies and put it into a bag, tied it with chains, made it “wear” a pair of shoes made of cement, and threw it overboard from a small boat. Mafia-like style. Crime scenes were popular diving areas, so that reactions from the media and divers wouldn’t take very long to come along.

Very good idea and it works because of PR. I would scare me if I was a diver... :)
