Background: The BIC Cristal is the best selling ballpoint pen in the world, but unfortunately not in Germany. The task was to create more awareness for this BIC Classic.
The idea: We noticed that celebrities give autographs without watching what they are actually signing. We used that insight to create a big buzz for BIC: Celebrities give autographs with our BIC pen and they sign stuff that they would normally never sign. We put our prank videos on YouTube and soon other people started to upload their own BIC Pranks.
The results: Dozens of involuntary top-class testimonials, thousands of viewers and a lot of awareness for BIC. All for 21 cent - the price of a BIC Cristal.
Digital advertisment created by Jung von Matt, Germany for BIC, within the category: Office Equipment.
