Oi, a telecom provider from Brazil, is hoping to make everyone believe in the magic of Christmas one more time. That’s why it created the Magical Payphone, a device that connected kids with Santa Claus. Installed in Rio de Janeiro, the special payphone was available to kids walking by with their parents. Once they made the call, the kids would chat with Santa, who were actually two retired actors from Retiro dos Artistas (an institution that takes care of former artists). But it was much more than a telephone call. Big surprises were prepared for the kids: lost elfs, gifts and even a mapped projection with snow and a choir of kids. Everything to make a great experience for the children and everyone watching.
Ambient advertisment created by NBS, Brazil for Oi, within the category: Electronics, Technology.
