Pizza for Bees

Without Bees, there’s no pizza. Thats right!

Papa John’s UK has created the world’s first pizza for bees, a stunt shining a light on a new honey-drizzled, spicy pizza and helping to raise awareness about the decline of the majestic pollinator.

Papa John's said: "This tiny, flying insect is in fact the most effective pollinator of tomatoes, essentially allowing us to keep up with the global demand for tomato-based products."

The brand is also supporting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust by giving out packs of native wildflower seeds via its social channels to customers keen to plant new sources of pollen. Customers can also donate to the cause while ordering.

‘Beezza’ is just too sweet :)

Selfridges No Noise Campaign

Removing all of the type and logos from some of the most famous products. Creating in limited runs and sold in Selfridges.

"As we become increasingly bombarded with information and stimulation, the world is becoming a noisier place," say the organisers. "In an initiative that goes beyond retail, we invite you to celebrate the power of quiet, see the beauty in function and find calm among the crowds."

Desperados: ‘Epic Parties Imagined by You’

As part of the beer brand’s ‘Epic parties imagined by you’ series, Desperados claimed to have launched the largest-ever video light show. Upon arrival, guests handed over their mobile in exchange for a beer. Following this, the phones were linked up and played synchronized animations in time with the music. Different from the experiential marketing of today as it removes the element of social media to share the experience online, this activation succeeds in creating an entirely immersive experience that has been designed by consumers.

Xbox: Survival Billboard

To promote the exclusive Xbox game ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’, in 2015 the console brand challenged eight members of the public to an endurance test in a stunt dubbed ‘Survival Billboard’. Great example of an engaging piece of experiential marketing.

Sausage Roll Sidecar

Greggs is now available on JustEat. To celebrate this alliance, the two brands got together and launched the ‘Sausage Roll Sidecar’ to travel around British cities and deliver Greggs goods. This is an example of a vehicle PR stunt wacky enough it doesn’t require being in convoy with other vehicles to turn heads. It also means there is now no excuse not to try the Greggs vegan sausage roll!
