1. Excellent Customer Service from Sainsburys When replying to this customers letter, Sainsburys couldn’t have known that it would be shared around the world with 20,000 other people. Whether this was just as a brilliant PR stunt or not, it shows some excellent customer service. A young girl wrote a letter asking why tiger bread had such a unique name. Instead of being tossed in the bin, somebody within Sainsburys spotted a brilliant PR opportunity and replied with a lovely letter and a gift card. The letter has over 50,000 comments, has been shared over18,000 times, and essentially has become a brilliant user generated advert for the brand that money cannot buy.

3. Snickers – a Savage focus group this Snickers spot from BBDO imagined the worlds most savage focus group—four sharks whove been invited to a little human taste-testing session!"OK, so which one tasted better?" asks the wonderfully peppy focus- group leader, as she points to photos of a man and woman. The sharks hilariously choose the guy because, before they ate him, he had just eaten a Snickers Peanut Butter Squared bar, presumably making his flesh delectably rich and tasty. The concept, sick and twisted, is brilliant. But the genius is in the details.

4. Tropicana – Fake SunRemarkable stunt from Tropicana. Last week at 6.51am a fake sun was lit at Trafalgar Square as part of the Tropicana’s Brighter Mornings campaign. The sun is30,000 times bigger than a football, has a surface area of 200m2 and weighs over 2,500kgs. Its internal light source produces the equivalent of 60,000 lightbulbs, making the artwork visible from space, so they say.
