Lockdown: what screams are made of
Targeting the ‘First Movers’ most likely to travel post-lockdown, SS+K, M&C Saatchi London and M&C Saatchi Talk encouraged housebound lockdowners to scream out their frustration at lookslikeyouneediceland.com. People could hear the recording of their scream blasted into stunning locations across Iceland. And see that relief from lockdown pressure was only a holiday away.
