Description of Ambient execution:
In the summer of 2010, Honest Tea set out to find the most honest city in America. We set up unmanned pop-up stores in 7 markets selling ice cold bottle tea for $1, on the honor system. Hidden cameras and microphones monitored the activity. We invited press to capture the story.
Part social experiment, part brand experience, part sampling device, the Honest Stores provoked conversation and buzz in each market and paved the way for a summer sales push.
The Ambient Advert titled THE HONEST STORE was done by Ss+k New York advertising agency for product: Ice Tea (brand: Honest Tea) in United States. It was released in the Jun 2011.
