English Description

The ‘Browse as fast as you think’ campaign makes the technological speed of Chrome easy to understand. It’s a speed test, but not in the physical world, more so in minds of the audience. After all, what could be faster than the speed of thought?

Each communication displays a series of unfinished words or phrases. Words the audience can’t help but finish, as though driven by some knee-jerk or reptilian brain response. As the speed and frequency of the phrases increase to an almost impossible pace, the audience discovers that their brain is keeping up. This gratifying realization is followed by an introduction to Chrome, a browser that is, quite literally, as fast as you think.

Perhaps the strongest aspect of this campaign is the fact that each communication takes the audience on an unexpected interactive experience in a media that is usually only passively consumed. The simplicity of the concept and execution also allows it to be adapted for any country or language as it plays on culturally relevant pop culture and knowledge, making it a truly global communication.
