• In a few hours, 10,000 ‘buy 1 free 1’ GUINNESS vouchers were redeemed

GUINNESS is a beer that is worth the wait. The reward is its smoother and creamier taste. We used a media that requires people to wait, and rewarded them for doing so. The same way they will get rewarded for waiting the extra time needed for a pint of GUINNESS.

Client Brief Or Objective
GUINNESS is a beer that needs time to settle before it can be consumed. This is an important characteristic that most new drinkers aren't aware of. With the launch of their new ‘Made of More’ campaign, GUINNESS wanted to educate new drinkers on the significance of waiting for a pint.But to a generation who are used to getting everything instantly, it was a challenge.

We used a media that some consider annoying, to prove that waiting can yield great rewards. We surprised and rewarded viewers who watched the ad without skipping with a 'BUY 1 FREE 1' Guinness voucher.In doing so, we transformed an ad media that people couldn't wait to skip into one that they looked forward to.
