Out-of-Home, Holiday Style

It’s that time of year again for snowflakes, candy canes, mistletoe and–of course–holiday ads. And nobody does them better than the out-of-home industry. Take a look at some of this year’s unique and eye-catching campaigns.

Here is a great example done for London’s Heathrow Airport. Following their slogan, “Making every journey better,” the world’s largest sprig of mistletoe was hung in Terminal 5, perfectly placed for a quick kiss between reconnecting loved ones.

This OOH campaign for Gap combined a very noticeable plaid wrapped bus and the peppiest street team I’ve ever seen (especially at 5:30 am). Made up of 12 professional dancers and drummers–all sporting the Gap plaid–the street team began in New York City’s Times Square, spreading holiday cheer as they flipped, shouted and threw giveaways into the crowd. Then they hopped back on their bus and headed to the next city on the tour.

The flash mob may be overdone, but who can ignore a couple hundred dancing elves that appear out of nowhere? Brought to us by OfficeMax, the holiday sensation Elf Yourself made its presence known this year with hundreds of elves and a choreographed dance that took place in New York’s Union Square. When the dance was finished, the elves ran off, yelling out, “Elf yourself” as they went.
