Guerrilla Stunt made this campaign for Clean & Clear Morning Energy, where five "walking" beds just went around the Brazilian city of São Paulo. In each bed was a girl sleeping, and would wake up in strategic places such as universities and schools, around 7 am, the beggining of classes. In their bed was written: " Dont take a sleepy face with you. Wake up your skin for beauty."

This ad from The Economist recently won a prize at the London International Advertising Awards for their bright concept. Created by Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, this billboard shows a light bulb that illuminates whenever someone walks under it by hooking some electric motion sensors under the sign. Althought it's a brilliant idea, let's just hope it doesn't rain.

3M was so sure their Security Glass was unbreakable, they put a large stack of cash behind it and shoved it in a bus stop. Actually, it was only $500 of real currency stacked on top of fake money, and people could only use their feet to try to break it. A security guard was present to make sure no one broke the rules and that people couldn't get to keep the money if they broke it. Nevertheless, a glass that can stand a double-footed kick from a man with a 30 foot head start is impressive.

In 2004, a ghostly car was parked on London's Belvedere Road — a full-sized Volkswagen Polo Twist, rendered in ice. Sculptors had spent 350 hours chiseling a nine-ton block of frozen water to create the VW. Conceived by the DDB London ad agency, the ice car melted away in just 12 hours, but it generated four weeks' worth of press in Britain, and invaluable buzz among Londoners.

To promote the 2004 global-warming film "The Day After Tomorrow," Indian ad agency Contract created this dramatic outdoor billboard which is submerged underwater.

The title and release date of the film was just visible above the water, adding to the effect is what looks like an empire state building in the background. The idea of this billboard was to mimic the film's story of Manhattan being submerged under water.

This provoking street campaign for the Australian Childhood Foundation can be seen right now in Melbourne. For their ongoing campaign "Stop Child Abuse Now", they used child size mannequins to represent children suffering neglect. The mannequins were placed in high traffic locations around the city and then a billposter was pasted over the top of the figure so only the feet and legs could be seen. Words on the poster read, “Neglected Children are made to feel invisible.”
