BGH in Argentina is promoting its new line of silent air conditioners with “Big Nose”, an integrated advertising campaign offering 25 percent discounts to people with big noses. The new line, with 5 stages of filtered air, was considered to be most helpful to people with big noses. The company worked with Del Campo Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi to create the nose-o-meter, an in-store device capable of measuring noses. If your nose touches the sensor, an alarm goes off and you win the discount. At bignosebgh.com online visitors can upload their profile picture, in order to find out if their nose has the chance to win. The site indicates where shoppers can find the nearest nose-o-meter and includes a gallery of noteworthy big noses.
The brand BGH wanted to launch its new line of Air Conditioners with 5 air filtering stages. In other words, the Air Conditioner units that provide the purest air of all. The objective was to generate a promotion which generated an answer of the target.
For the launch of BGH’s line of Air Conditioners we decided to help those who need pure air most: BIG NOSES.
That’s why if you had a Big Nose, BGH gave you a 25% discount. We created: The Nose-O-Meter. A device capable of measuring the length of a nose.
If your nose reached the sensor, the siren went off and you won the discount.
The Campaign was launched on TV, Web and Print. The communication directed the target to the retail stores where the Nose-O-Meters were installed. And there, the people could participate and make their discount effective.
