Ad of the Day – Oct 24 (Tunis)

Every morning I scour the web and look at 10 random ads (in any medium) from around the non-US world. Then I post for you my Ad of the Day. Some days it will be awesome, some days you might not like it. But it’s the Ad of the Day!

Today’s pick:

  • Agency: Memac Ogilvy
  • Location: Tunis, Tunisia
  • Client: Engagement Citoyen (voter drive for upcoming elections)
  • Name: “Retour de Ben Ali”
  • Why I like it: I mean come on, this isn’t just good, it’s bloody brilliant!! For those of you that have forgotten, Ben Ali was the long-serving head (dictator) of Tunisia, who was ousted on January of this year as part of the “Arab Spring” uprising. What a way to send a message about civic involvement, eh? Vote…or one day you can easily find yourself in a dictatorship again. One of the most creative usages of the OOH medium that I have seen. Just fantastic. Congratulations to our friends at Memac Ogilvy!
