What’s KLM? Apparently last year lots of Germans [46% to be precise] weren’t able to answer this very simple question. KLM made this discovery during a survey understanding that people mostly believed they were a bank, a restaurant or a radio station. So, they decided to launch a bizarre awareness campaign focus on ambient marketing. What did they call it? “We are an airline”. 😀

Is everyone back from holiday? My blog is! As a good purpose for this restart of the year, I’ll follow the advice of Tim Hortons advertising campaign and take a coffee more often with one of my neighbours. The coffee brand have organised a social experiment in Canada using the “coffee’s power” and its brand experience convincing neighbours to “properly” meet and chat for the first time.
