How can you get Stockholmers to pay special attention to Norwegian airline’s low prices on flight to Edinburgh? In addition to a traditional campaign we solved this challenge by converting adshells to the lower half of a Scotsman’s body.

You are absolutely right. Scandinavians in general are very nice people :)

IMO it's an intriguing ad, with a humoristic sense and cute insight.

Funny idea but I doubt many people would look underneath that. People don't really do that. People in cars passing by can't even. And fabric in public is always a bit dangerous, some kids might put it on fire. Yes I'm being very pessimistic :>

It's a fun idea. Clearly meant for pedestrian traffic - not cars.

I agree with jackmancer... practically, but my heart is bleeding for this cute creativity.

They may not put it on fire, but they can certainly tear it apart. But this is Sweden. I believe the people there are nice. That said, the campaign is wonderful.

Yes I appreciate jackmancers comments, and I was thinking the same thing when I saw the advert. But I love the idea so much that I can see past all the pessimism!

Put this is the right location.. a high tourist traffic area.. and tons of people will look underneath it. Not only that, people will take pictures with it, which can help an ad pay for itself these days. And bus shelter ads are mostly intended for pedestrians, not cars.

Superb. Only complaint - The bottom of the red rectangle containing the copy should have been visible beneath the skirt, to make people lift up the skirt & read the copy.

I WOULD so definitely lift up that kilt to see what's underneath... how can anyone with any imagination or sense of humour, not!?

This was already done with a woman's skirt a few years back.

It engages the audience, while still sitting stationary. And it creates a story for the audience. That way, when they tell friends, they pass on the idea. Very subversively effective.
