When tasked to reach a large audience on a small budget by client Safarilink.co.za, FCB Cape Town came up with an idea that taps into one of the most insidious social media habits.
“Cat videos. The internet can’t seem to get enough of them. When our client asked us to come up with a cost effective way to promote their services, we decided to make a few videos of our own, featuring those cats the client is most at home with,” said Executive Creative Director, Mike Barnwell.
The agency created two 20 second ads – Dramatic Cat and Saber Cats – which were placed as pre-rolls before some of YouTube’s most popular cat compilations.
