Brain Teaser

Description: 

The challenge: Nintendo asked us to come up with an indoor promotion for Nintendo DSi Brain Teasers. The problem: in shopping malls prior to Christmas. And as we all know, they are a madhouse of noise and confusion at this time. So, how do we get anyone’s attention in there?

The idea: In every shopping mall there is a place where we can have people for our very own. A place that over 40% of shoppers visit at least once during their shop. A place that is just perfect for our promotion: the customer toilet. We transformed this place into one big brain teaser. And turned it into an experience space. Leaflets with a 10% discount offer on all Nintendo Brain Teasers encouraged shoppers to go straight to the retailer in the shopping mall.

Ambient advertisment created by Ogilvy, Germany for Nintendo, within the category: Electronics, Technology.

Brain Teasers: anytime, anywhere.

It's a crossword puzzle e.g. asking for an American composer, a single figure, a month in spring and so on...

I'm surprised nobody took a pen and started filling in the words!

Brain teasers are great. If I walked into a bathroom like this, I'd probably make everyone uncomfortable while I read all of the questions. Cool idea.

It's good... but it only works in restrooms with tiles on the walls.

I never go to public rest room in Shopping mall. Never sure I clean they will be. Certainly as clean as the example given.
