MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SOCIETY - MS WEEK



Saatchi & Saatchi truly broke new ground this spring by persuading The

Independent to allow it to manipulate the paper’s editorial for

advertising purposes. In a bid to echo the disruption caused by MS, the

agency scrambled an entire page of foreign news editorial, following it

with the original page and a reveal for the MS Society. The impact of

the stunt was enhanced further by being featured on both BBC Breakfast

News and Sky News, effectively doubling the advertisement’s exposure. An

inspirational idea producing a true media first.





CHANNEL 5



You have to respect the gall of Walker Media which used the BBC’s own

football coverage to promote a rival match appearing simultaneously on

Channel 5. By buying revolving perimeter sites C5 successfully persuaded

92,000 viewers to switch from the BBC match.





VANISH STAIN REMOVAL AND MONICA LEWINSKY



BMP OMD’s quick media buying and eye for a stunt generated extensive

amounts of PR, and an estimated 10 million sniggering viewers, for

Benckiser’s Vanish In Wash Stain Remover slot during Channel Four’s

Equinox interview in which Jon Snow quizzed Monica Lewinsky about her

infamously stained dress.
