Double silver for Grey Düsseldorf at EPICA

Comedy Central project wins in non-interactive, interactive and billboard

Double silver for Grey Düsseldorf at EPICA

 

After winning a bronze Cannes lion this year, Grey Düsseldorf go one better at EPICA and scoop double silver for Comedy Central's, Non-interactive, interactive billboard.
 
 
 
Short explanation
 
Idea: For Comedy Central Comedy is everywhere. To promote their new relationship show “Happy Endings” we stepped out of TV right into a place where people meet randomly: a bus stop. We transformed it into a stage where we forged relationships between strangers; creating the world’s first non-interactive, interactive comedy.
 
Execution: When people appeared at the bus stop a Comedy Central scriptwriter started to write relationship jokes about them and uploaded it instantly into a speech or thought bubble above them. Online people also had the opportunity to write their own jokes and send them in real time via the Comedy Central Facebook page.
 
Results: We entertained passing pedestrians and created attention for the new show, it made people laugh online and offline and that was exactly what Comedy Central wanted.
