Vodafone Ireland have launched a creative and innovative campaign this year in conjunction with the Christmas Season. The campaign looks to combine social media, projection mapping and street art, in an attempt to take the brand’s Facebook community offline and onto the streets.
The campaign is a nice extension and ties in nicely with Vodafone’s social voice this year which is all about encouraging their community to ‘Make someone happy’ with Random acts of kindness.
Local Irish artists, took to the streets, creating light displays from messages submitted to the Vodafone Playgroup Facebook wall. Using new laser graffiti technology, these were showcased on the sides of buildings in three cities across Ireland.
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all back in Ireland

simply amazing – 1000 cellphones syncing 53 different ringtone alerts from 2000 sent messages to reconstruct Tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture

I’ve never seen anybody in this Optus shop on Oxford street, Sydney, but today the line stretched way back with people lining up for a good old distance – desperate for the next big thing in mobile – the 3G iPhone. With it taking 30 mins to sign each person up, this is one slow moving line. What most of the people in the queue don’t realise is that there are only white 8Gb iPhones left (seriously we do wonder why anyone would want a destined to look really grubby white phone), and there’s a 3 week wait for new stock. I imagine Optus will be doing swift business as their packages include 700MB of data for $79 and no upfront fee for the iPhone. Vodafone appear to be about $200 more for the same kind of plan.
The latest stats are that iPhone users are 5 times more likely to access the internet than regular mobile users so this is actually good news for the digital industry.
