Over a year ago, a group of advertising practitioners rocked OOH advertising by filling the most jammed highway in Metro Manila (EDSA) with bright pink mini billboards bearing the words “Olivia, Will You Marry Me?“. It was Valentines season and the country was still at the height of viral proposal videos online, which was the reason that this campaign instantaneously took the internet by storm!
It caused such a stir on twitter, facebook, instagram, blogs, and local news portals – with everyone wanting to find out who this rich guy is and, more importantly,
WHO how beautiful this Olivia girl is – I mean for someone to actually spend time, guts and money to fill the highway with proposal billboards just for her?! Haba ng hair!
No one had a clue as nothing else was written in the billboards apart from a “21414” at the corner, which was quickly associated with the date February 14, 2014. Alas, the date came by but nothing was yet revealed; boosting people’s expectations up a notch!
‘Is it a real proposal? Or just a marketing ploy?’ netizens ask.
It definitely was too-good-to-be-true a proposal as it turns out to be only a clever marketing campaign by a group of
kids professionals – to which, I am humbled to belong to.
And, here is a link to our team’s exclusive feature article! Enjoy!
