How to give your Brand Promotions a lift with creative Elevator/Escalator Stickers

Take a look at this brilliant example of Elevator Sticker advertising by Oreo (0.42 sec watch, we believe that videos speak louder than typed words).

(Video Description: One sticker of an Oreo cookie was placed on the moving shaft of an elevator. Another sticker of a huge glass of milk was placed on the stationary component of the elevator. When the elevator moved, it gave an illusion of the cookie being dunked in the milk.  This ties in perfectly with Oreo’s tagline: Milk’s Favourite Cookie.

What a jaw-dropping campaign! A guerrilla marketing stunt, Oreo created one of the first exciting elevator sticker related marketing campaign. By using just 2 mega stickers, one elevator and a perfect location, Oreo made a head-turning, customer eye-grabbing marketing campaign.

With this sticker stunt, Oreo gave a huge fillip to brand promotions using elevators.
