“This was a big brief from a major international organisation and a terrific opportunity for the agency to demonstrate its capabilities in a medium we love on a global stage at a pivotal point in time,” says Ian Heartfield, New Commercial Arts Chief Creative Officer.

The campaign is currently running for the duration of August and is being supported by the National Trade Associations and Out of Home media owners across the world in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia, the Far East including China and Australasia. Grand Visual is handling campaign production and distribution.

Grand Visual CEO Neil Morris says: “The quality and ubiquity of screens around the world make DOOH the perfect medium to address global audiences at scale. Centralised localisation and revisioning delivers quality control and maximises creative impact across the diverse DOOH landscape.”

The campaign launched on Monday, 27 July, and according to World OOH News, as of Tuesday, 11 August, there is 163 media owners and other companies contributing in 49 countries. The posters are appearing in eight languages and so far, there have been 2216 asset downloads. The campaign is on track to be the biggest out of home campaign ever with new media owners joining all the time.

WOO President Tom Goddard says: “Our Second Chance reflects the new post-Covid world, in a non-partisan way and highlights the opportunity it gives citizens across the world, to consider their priorities and aspirations. New Commercial Arts has produced a stunning campaign that shows the Out of Home industry at its best and most striking: a reminder to advertisers and agencies that, as the world re-opens for business, out of home remains the only true global broadcast medium.”

“We are extremely proud to be part of yet another special global campaign which unites media owners around the world. DOOH has played a vital part in how we support our communities and people pre and post Covid and its shows how powerful DOOH can be, but on a global magnitude,” says Ben Harris, Managing Director at Tractor.

Alongside the massive DOOH campaign will be a major social initiative with the hashtag #OurSecondChance deploying Twitter polls to explore consumer attitudes to the choices and opportunities presented in a world changed by Covid-19.
