The Viral ADN

By on December 7, 2016

This is one of the greatest campaigns I’ve seen lately. It’s amazing that the brand behind is a travel agency.

Top highlights:
– The insight is perfectly identified and put together. People avoid traveling to certain destinations because of their prejudices towards locals. At the end of the day, we are all a mix of different cultures and races, so why don’t you go find out more -> Solution -> Travel

– The campaign reminds the successful Dove ones.
– The audience is broad enough (indeed, everyone) so virality is more likely to take off.
– Fabulous surprise at the end to close the whole thing and get you and additional excitement!
– “An Open world begins with an open mind” is just a perfect statement!

Watch and Travel!

I’ve always consider myself a Seth Godin fan. Create something worth talking about and you will have it all!

This week’s been one of those week that made me fall in love with great advertisng again.

A good friend of mine, Javier and his team from Pixel and Pixel is behind this great piece that made it all along the Spanish market.


Well, their client is Netflix and the goal is to promote the series Narcos. Translation is evident: Oh, White snow. Get it? The rest is art 🙂

It’s amazing how amazingly you can get the attention of the audience with a little 3 word game and a clear insight already popular among the audience.

Will this piece make it to the International audience? I hope so! Congrats guys! Well done, everybody is now talking about your client! #Achieved #ThisIsViral

Faster and bigger don’t mean better or greater anymore…The world is praying for a slower lifestyle shift and it seems we are starting to see some relevant movements and campaigns rising hands to make people aware.

Take it easy, relax and watch this great piece of work by Wissame Cherfi. Round of applause for you and Joe!

Keep it Slow-making!

Estoy preparando un webminar sobre el Real Time Marketing para IEBS. Ahora que tengo algo de tiempo, estoy dedicando mi tiempo a volver a desarrollar esta faceta de profesor que siempre me ha encantado.

Real Time Marketing

Información General

Lo quiero ya, ahora, no quiero esperar y además quiero que sea relevante. El nuevo Internet del ‘Now‘ nos ha hecho más exigentes que nunca y las marcas deben tomar nota y adaptarse a ello o morir. Cada momento es una oportunidad para crear relevancia de marca, aunque eso no signifique que debamos participar en cada evento, noticia o momento. El Real Time Marketing es Storytelling impulsado por lo instantáneo.

Real time marketing Now

Consciente del desafío que esto supone, nos adentraremos en este viaje para entender cómo podemos planificar una campaña de Real Time Marketing, utilizar este paradigma a nuestro favor y salir victoriosos contra la vorágine del ‘Now’. Algunas de las claves son planificar posibles eventos, engancharnos a la escucha del mercado, tener un equipo creativo con gran intuición y definir protocolos de actuación.

I tell you… Black Mirror is not that far from present

Black Mirror is that new Nextflix series that is buzzing around powerfully as shows the dark side of life, technology and the new hyper-connected world. Since I’m someone very passionate about the digital world I got fully addicted to it.

The good news is that new episodes have been released and Season 3 is boom!. I would recommend to watch episode 1. Why? Because it’s represents very clear how digital influence works and the how dangerous the scoring approach is.

What’s interesting is the fact that we are not that far from there. Basically, people are rated (0-5) after every interaction they have so people become very hypocrite as everybody plays the game. Does it sound familiar to you? Because for me it does. This is not all, your circle is very important and the more you connect and get high scores from high score people the better. What’s funny is that you can hire a consultant who will help you increase your score. They do an analysis of your influence and will find strategies on how to increase your score. For example, among the most popular techniques there are mixing with high score people, be more thankful, post eco or social related content, etc.

The thing is that the higher is your score the better benefits you get. For instance, you are admitted in cool clubs, welcome to live in the best neighborhoods, etc.


On the other hand, if you try to be to honest or speak loud, people will look at you as a crazy person and will start rating you down. Don’t mess it up! Once you go down 2.5 nobody will trust you and you are quite likely to end in the streets or even in prison.

I have some high score, trust me and go watch it!

Finally and among all the noise that forms Internet nowadays, I found an interesting presentation about the big topic of privacy. Aran Balkan gives plenty of details and will get your attention for sure. The full video is on Facebook and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. For more detail you can go directly to Aran’s blog

Key ideas:

– Our phone is an expansion of our self
– Data is a new asset
– Facebook facilitates the data traveling
– Brands and corporation know the more and more about what we do and think
– Surveillance of the self is an assault; a violation of the self
– If Zuckerberg does what he does we might want to do the same 🙂

Thanks God for this amazing IDEA!

This campaign is brilliant not because it’s using a Virtual Reality headset but because the audience is given a full and integrated brand experience that merges both worlds…The twist at the end is just fantastic.

I’ve been always a fan of that kind of brands that enter a category and suddenly, with a proper positioning vision and a solid and smart strategy become leaders. This is the case of Gin Mare, the Mediterranean Gin. I’m amazed and cannot be more aligned with one of the greatest event ideas I’ve ever seen lately. Enjoy and distillyou life… Remember The Mediterranean is not a place but an attitude.

Mediterranean attitude

Below I’ve included the brand case developed by the consultancy Garrigos&Llopis. You will find a great analysis and many important things that define the this premium Gin and helped to build a powerful brand.

Although sites like Facebook offer a quick and nice view of what’s going on in the world (Note that Facebook prioritises news over brand posts), there are more insightful sites out here to identify relevant trends and what the future will look like. In this list I’m trying to avoid the big names like Forbes, Nielsen or Masahable.

Here below, it’s the list of 5 relevant sites for trends hunting I’ve subscribed and I follow:

About: “We help businesses process global consumer lifestyle, product and engagement insights, stimulating innovation and growth”

Reason why I like it: Recommended by one of my greatest colleagues, Stylus offers great reports not only about trends but also consumer lifestyle, new products, etc. The blog is really good if you are looking for a quick dose of inspiration.

Stylus trends

About: “With 60,000,000 monthly views, is the world’s largest, most popular trend community. Our head office is based in Toronto, Canada, and we are fueled by a global network of 155,000 members and 3,000,000 fans. Trend Hunter, Trend Hunter TV and Trend Hunter PRO feature 252,000 cutting edge ideas.”

Reason why I like it: Although a classic, I think the site still offers a nice mix of ideas, insights, product innovations, culture, etc. I like how each article is scored and it shows audience information. We can discuss whether this is really accurate or not but it adds a nice touch.

best trends sites

About: “Cool Hunting is an award-winning publication that uncovers the latest in design, technology, style, travel, art and culture. Since 2003 our original content has informed the creative community that’s designing the future.”

Reason why I like it: It’s fresh and it’s name says, the site is very focused on the cool. You can read but also listen, link, look, travel, etc. Get your attention grabbed by a cool image and read further if interested.

Best sites for trend hunting

About: “Established in 2002, we help forward-thinking business professionals in 180+ countries understand the new consumer and subsequently uncover compelling, profitable innovation opportunities.”

Reason why I like it: Free publications are good and the site is very easy to navigate and visually appealing. Their methodology includes a Trend Framework that contains the 16 mega-trends that define the future of business and consumerism at large and which form the basis of their research process.

Use these sources to get inspired and get some validation but never stop questioning things. Go underground and observe and identify insights and spot trends on your own. And remember, curiosity is the greatest tool ever designed.

I have to say that the first time I saw this campaign, along with the WOW factor I felt a bit of “poor little creatures”; However, once you watched again, you realise that this is one of the coolest campaigns ever created. Insight is clearly defined, proof is there and more important, SUUMO is able to achieve its objectives in a very smart way.

Sometimes you have to look beyond your world to make something outstanding and extraordinary. It’s quite amazing that SUUMO’s DNA is to “create a world that you can easily move”…
