Y&R Thailand worked with LG to run the “Seafood Aquarium”, an award-winning ambient advertising campaign promoting the LG SolarDom microwave oven. Robotic seafood, designed in forms ready to cook in a microwave, was placed an aquarium in the food court of a large Bangkok department store. Grilled Saba with Soya, Fried Mackerel and Deep-fried Shrimp swim like real fish, with the tagline, “Ready to eat. LG Solardom cooks food 4 times faster.” This clearly demonstrated our idea that the LG SolarDom can cook food faster so it’s like taking fresh fish out of a tank and eating it right away. The store’s electronics section experienced a 60 percent increase in consumer inquiries. The campaign won a Gold Outdoor Lion at Cannes International Festival of Creativity.
