Ogilvy have launched this fantastic campaign for themselves that doubles as a recruitment drive and social competition. It’s called the Search For The Worlds Greatest Salesperson, and it’s running exclusively on their YouTube channel.
All you have to do is sell a brick. Yep, the top few people who can upload the best video of how to sell a plain old brick will win a trip to Cannes to pitch live to the global advertising crowd, and get a paid 3 month fellowship at Ogilvy!
Part of what I love about this campaign for themselves, is that Ogilvy didn’t do it by halves, they’ve shot about 6 fantastic ads, all hilarious.
