Description of Ambient execution
We set up two pop-up retail locations of the Weak Shop in Vancouver, Canada. Both were in high pedestrian traffic, urban areas. One used window hoardings to simulate a grand opening. The other location was stocked with products to help people who are feeling weak because they haven’t been drinking enough milk. These specialty products included Chair Pants, Weak Mugs, Wallet Walkers and more. Infomercials played constantly inside the shop, extolling the virtues of these unusual products. Just like any other retail store, staff were on hand to explain product benefits and help with sizing. The staff also gave away milk samples (the revitalizing bonus) to everyone, whether they made a purchase or not.
The Outdoor Advert titled THE WEAK SHOP was done by DDB Canada - Vancouver advertising agency for product: Milk (brand: Bc Dairy Foundation) in Canada. It was released in the Sep 2009.
