Ballerina Goes Noir in Virgin's Fresh Footwork
Virgin is known for its ostentatious marketing efforts but they blew us away with Fresh Footwork, a Virgin Money campaign. Leveraging the slogan "Things get more exciting when you say yes," a ballerina traipses across a stage and is paused by an invitation to continue if you push a button marked Yes. With each confirmed Yes her footwork gets darker, sexier and more complex.
We don't want to blow the ending but anything that devolves in loose hair and pyrotechnics has our vote. Great use of interactive media. And the subtle sex appeal gave it a perfect balance of taste and edginess. We like Virgin's fresh footwork.
Created by Glue London, this was the topping-off to Virgin's 2006 Yes campaign in the UK.
