  • Advertising agency DDB shot this advertising campaign for Voyages SNCF. La Machine à Voyager commercial displays a mysterious black cube in the middle of Palais Royal Square in Paris. Three individual passersby decide to approach it and surprisingly, hear a voice asking them where they would want to go if they could escape anywhere. Once the answer is given, the cube throws a magnificent display of fireworks, music, confetti and a giant ticket. The ad doesn’t reveal if the three individuals actually win a trip; regardless, Voyages SNCF has certainly found the best campaign to get people’s attention.
