Rethinking mass media 45 Review The poster was printed in sections and was assembled late one evening and early the following morning, so that it would have appeared that the Lego building had shot up overnight. The campaign was primarily designed as outdoor pieces. The proliferation of them on the web has been more of a consequence than an initial objective. (Spokesperson, O&M Santiago) • The project draws on the idea that many children first learnt about construc- • • tion through Lego. Therefore the real-life Lego building is a witty and evocative reference that many around the world would have understood (even though the campaign was initially intended for the Chilean market).

In the top right of the screen, a small red symbol appeared throughout, inviting viewers to press the ‘red’ button. In contrast to the frenetic commercial that dramatized Mondeo’s positioning, viewers were transported to a safe place to admire the new-look refinements to Mondeo. The tone was more serious and product oriented: after the hook of the commercial, the microsite operated as pre-showroom salesperson. Access to the Ford microsite was free to satellite and digital viewers and did not require additional hardware or upgrades for access.

Yet in practice, production companies that use advertising are keen not to over-commit to one advertising agency. They prefer to be the guardians of their own brand and like agencies to pitch for tender. For instance, back in 1999, the Apple Corporation famously opted to use the features of their new iMac as the driver for their promotional material. Ad agencies were charged with using the look of the iMac as a visual hook and selling proposition, so that media campaigns around the world settled on a similar ‘product as star’ tactic.
