I’m always a fan of a marketing campaign that actually helps someone first and sells someone second. Here is a genius campaign set out by Cheil Worldwide in which they set out to solve a problem in South Korea.
A large number of humans jump off the Mapo Bridge in South Korea and ultimately end their life. Samsung Life Insurance and Cheil Worldwide wanted to change their minds. Rather than preventing them from jumping, they wanted to touch their hearts. Instead, they placed inspirational messages that lit up as a person walked by. The goal was to move their heart and remind the person of the joys of life.
Not only does the campaign attempt to save a life, but it also reminds people of the services that Samsung Life Insurance provides. Pretty cool! What do you think?
