At some point in elementary school, all kids are tasked with the difficult project of growing a bean sprout. Capitalizing on this knowledge, Samsung and Cheil put direct mailer recipients to the test with a small bean planted in a mini pot shaped like a fridge, with the question: “If fresh food could talk, what kind of fridge would it recommend?” If you watered it correctly and treated your bean the way you’re meant to, it would sprout up to reveal Samsung as the fridge of choice (written on the actual plant). This witchcraft is made possible by laser sketching apparently, and proves that yet another elementary school project turns out to have real-world applications.
Direct advertisment created by Cheil, Canada for Samsung, within the category: Electronics, Technology.
If your fresh food could talk, what kind of fridge would it recommend? Water and place in sunlight to find out.
