Description of Ambient execution
For a short time every year around St. Patrick’s day, McDonalds restaurants in Chicago and around the country offer the ‘Shamrock Shake.’ It’s a popular product, with a devoted fan following. At the same time every year, the City of Chicago dyes the Chicago River green. The coincidence between green shake, green river, and St. Patrick’s day was a perfect convergence of events, and set the stage for a great creative execution. To take advantage of the event, a giant Shamrock Shake was built, and positioned alongside the river the day the water was colored green. The overall effect was that the shake had tipped into the river, turning it into a giant green shake.
