Ad Nut feels fairly confident that the people of Penang actually know what Ikea is. But wordplay is always welcome in Ad Nut's book, and cross-language wordplay meant to endear a brand to a new community even more so. So Ad Nut approves of this campaign by BBH Singapore for the Swedish furniture giant's opening in Penang on 14 March.
The campaign includes OOH, digital, print and social. A second phase will focus on product-centred stories, supported by "rich, immersive spots" that will run on digital platforms, Ad Nut has been informed.
