SEK & Grey Helsinki has created a new ad campaign for Fonecta, directed by Tom Carty through Gorgeous.
It promotes the Finnish directory service, which allows phone users to text 16400 to discover who has called them after they miss a call from an unknown number.
The spot focuses on a man who should have taken advantage of the service. He rejected a call from a number he didn't recognise, which belonged to an immigrant oil tycoon searching for an heir to his fortune.
The ad concludes with the strapline: "An unknown number could be the most important of your life."

Brief: Increase awareness that thyroid cancer is growing faster than
other cancers and encourage people to check their necks
Creative agency: Lowe New York
Writer: Chip Rich
Art director: Raj Kamble
Media agency: n/s
Illustrator: Keith Negley
Exposure: Print, outdoor
The Light of Life Foundation is hoping to raise awareness of the increasing incidences of thyroid cancer with a new poster advertising campaign.
Lowe New York created the posters, which are based on the premise that there is a widespread understanding of the need for breast, prostate and testicular examinations, but less awareness about thyroid cancer, which is growing seven times faster than breast cancer.
The executions, which show a doctor examining a neck where he would normally look for breast, prostate or testicular cancer, tell people to "check your neck" and refer them to the website checkyourneck.com.
