cool idea. simple, practically zero costs and nice results.
but they might have added in the video how they found the people to tag in the photos. guess they hooked up with everyone in a local ad school group on FB, but would love to hear the whole story from them.

i enjoyed the honesty of the results. 42 people came back to them. Just 42. But that's ok.

Good one, man.
Also i would like to know how many people they really tagged.

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.

What about the other 36??? I love the advertising logic

Guest's picture

great an agency that does picture tagging spam...i appreciate that they tried to innovate but this is a spam tactic

its not as good as it has to offer... coz TBWA cant take all those who apply for work so it'll be so disappointing for a big slice

I'm just amazed, and impressed, that any ad agency these days is able to employ any new people at all. For that alone, I say, well done. Und viel spass!

Any network agency in Germany that actually recognises a potential in social networking platforms, or online work in general, should be commended.

Welcome to Fantasialand.

Sorry guys,
but more than anything else, this ad shows that the creatives who faked it had no idea at all of Social Media:
on Facebook you can only tag people that you have already befriended.

But let's say, they where friends on Facebook.
Why would they write an expensive FB App, to get their 42 friends to apply for a job?
Especially, when they where interested in only six of them, which they could have easily contacted directly, hum?
