T-Mobile ad breaks during Celebrity Big Brother

LONDON - Saatchi & Saatchi's TV creative for T-Mobile's "Life's for Sharing" campaign was launched at the weekend.

Commuters at Liverpool Street Station were treated to some entertainment on Friday morning, as 350 dancers launched into a spontaneous routine to launch T-Mobile’s new campaign.

The ad, which was turned around within hours, broke on Friday night's Celebrity Big Brother.

Saatchi & Saatchi creative partner Kate Stanners, said: "Across the whole campaign we’ve looked for ways to really engage with people through the notion of Life’s for Sharing.

"We hope that Dance will connect with people in a bold and dynamic way, inspiring them to create and share their own memorable moments.

Ten hidden cameras planted in the central London station filmed the sequence, as first one and then hundreds of dancers, disguised as members of the public, danced along to music being pumped through the station’s loudspeakers.

Paul Silburn, creative partner at Saatchi & Saatchi, said: "The idea was to create a feeling of spontaneity – an event so memorable that people can’t help but join in and share it."

The performance, in a style reminiscent of ‘flash mob’ events, was choreographed by Ashley Wallen.
