Out of Home media agency Talon, in collaboration with dentsu Redstar and Publicis has partnered with Heineken 0.0 to bring an interactive time zone activation to Dublin City.

The aim of the outdoor campaign is to guess where in the world it is currently 1pm. The bespoke installation, located on Camden Corner utilises digital screens at street-level to present contestants with 4 city’s clocks. One clock is showing Dublin time, the other three are constantly spinning through city names. Once 3 city names are locked in, the contestants have 15 seconds [CG1] to guess which city is at 1 o’clock to win a prize. The competition will run each day between 12:30-2.30pm over the next two-week period with a countdown displayed outside the venue so passers-by know when it’s time to play.

The Out of Home activation is supported by a wider programmatic OOH campaign that centres on those key consumption moments where consumers can enjoy a drink at lunchtime without the mid-afternoon lull.

Eoin Carroll, Account Manager at Talon, said: Talon was delighted to work alongside Heineken, Dentsu, Publicis, and Micromedia to help elevate this campaign and bring it to life. The on-street activation was strategically located in Dublin City Centre in an area with high-footfall to reach consumers and get them involved in the conversation. The activation brings together creativity and a shared passion for creating memorable moments. I’m thrilled to have been part of such a great campaign.

Colin Doyle at Heineken said: “There is a huge positive movement towards more choice and moderation in Ireland, but we still have a journey to go on, to make Heineken® 0.0 a choice for whenever you fancy a beer. We want to eliminate any sense of the ‘odd one out’ feeling that Irish people may sometimes experience when choosing 0.0 options. Because really, who cares? So, whether it’s on a night out or at lunchtime, the focus should be about what really matters…enjoying good company and having the craic. This special OOH activation focuses on Heineken® 0.0 and lunchtime and will liberate Irish consumers socialising, whenever they’re out and on their own terms, zero explanation needed”.

Alenna Schneider, Client Manager at dentsu Redstar said: “There are so many great opportunities with OOH for creating impactful and engaging experiences for our audience. We knew we had to take advantage of what the medium offers to let people know that with Heineken® 0.0, there is zero explanation needed to enjoy a pint with your lunch. This was a fantastic team effort with great work from everyone involved!”

Peter Dobbyn, Creative Director at Publicis said: “For this project, we really wanted to create something surprising that would not only stop people in their tracks but invite participation. We do this with a fun competition that could literally take you from strolling Camden Street to lunching in Madrid. Cheers to that!”
