GALLERY 24: Cell C - Various

Cell C is South Africa's 3rd cellular network, entering a fierce market dominated by the two biggest cell networks. The agency chose to pitch Cell C as the consumer champion with 'tell someone' expressing our innate need to communicate - especially when something big, eventful, emotional or shocking happens. Around 20 ads have run so far and have featured scenarios including a guy being released by aliens and a child in a shanty town discovering snow. The campaign helped achieve 99% brand awareness in its first year.
