Results and Effectiveness
Chatting to 17,000 people a day, users were getting the message within moments, and thinking twice about how they were spending their time. Please see A/V Presentation

Creative Execution
We rigged a webcam to show a board which simply read “Have a break. Have a Kit Kat” and recorded the live reactions of people being randomly connected to it through the chatroom. Please see A/V Presentation

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Chatroulette.com is the latest Internet phenomenon to take the world by storm. With 4 million users a month, it’s a chatroom that randomly connects you to a stranger somewhere in the world. But as you’ve got no control over who pops up, you can spend hours on the site, clicking from one person to the next, and not find anyone normal to talk to. Because the user experience can sometimes be quite boring, we saw an opportunity to encourage people to “have a break”.
