Book fresheners?


"Till 1990’s Russia was the most reading country in the world. Now people read less. Chain of bookstores “100 000 books” decided to remind people about the necessity of reading. One of the places where all people still read is toilet. When there’s no book there, people read anything that is at hand and mostly air fresheners. We created fresheners with fragments of world best-sellers printed on them. Books-fresheners appeared in WC in malls, business centers, offices, restaurants and household stores. Books-fresheners gained popularity. Next month after promotion the attendance of “100 000 books” grew by 23%. Now they are going to sell the fresheners in the chain’s outlets."

"Wouldn't it be cool if someone pushed the boundaries of what a car
could do, and then made that technology available to everyone?
At Nissan, it's what we do every day. It's what we call Innovation for all."

Red Vines Licorice uses social, mobile marketing to win licorice debate

Since tomorrow is National Licorice Day
and since
Red Vines equals crazy delicious..."
(-Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg, "Lazy Sunday")

Michael Kelly, spokesperson for the American Licorice Company
explains Red Vines' brand awareness campaign:

"While the its closest competitor is spending an estimated $25 million this year on paid media,
Red Vines® (family-owned American Licorice Company) is spending a fraction of that on earned media: 

Red Vines product integration with TeamStarKid's "A Very Harry Musical" on YouTube,
resulting in over 1MM viral views.

The first company in the candy industry to make products available on CheckPoints, allowing consumers to earn tangible rewards by scanning its products while out shopping.
8K Facebook fans grew to 83K fans in 12 months, by sharing compelling content that surrounds the brand, and engaging with fans on a personal level.

Red Vine's unique “World of Sharing” campaign has made it almost all the way around the world (almost 20K messages posted so far), serving as a unique platform to generate positive consumer-created content on the social web.

As a result, Red Vines is eclipsing the competition in positive brand conversations.
The company is confident its integrated consumer engagement strategy is moving market share. This spring they’ll be measuring Year over Year sales lift in specific markets to determine what quantifiable effects the social and mobile campaigns are having.

As for social media metrics, Red Vines has already achieved a relative advantage. Based on market share, Red Vines has relatively many more fans on Facebook, has grown its Twitter followers faster, and has more integration on YouTube videos than the competition."

And just for kicks, here's a fun Red Vines commercial from 2008!

"What makes Infiniti different from every other luxury automobile maker?
It begins with a brushstroke..."

Infiniti Brush Strokes commercials Part 1

Love the brush stroke ads from Infiniti so much, I thought I'd share a few recent spots:

"From the stitching in the seats to the sound of the car on the road, the 2011 Infiniti M truly shows off its performance and style in the smallest of detail."

"What constitutes a luxury automobile? Is it technology consisting of an engine that creates more power using less fuel, the worlds first blind spot intervention system or 4-wheel active steering? This 2011 Infiniti M features all these inspired technologies and more."

"An air conditioning system designed to mimic a calm forest breeze. Silver dust hand polished into the wood. There has never been a car quite like the all-new Infiniti M."

And here's my favorite, "Storm"
