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.

For Comedy Central Comedy is everywhere. Promotion of their new relationship show “Happy Endings”.
