Oporto launches new spicy Portugese billboard campaign via Bohemia and The Glue Society

1.jpgA new integrated campaign launches today for Oporto's $10 Meal Deal which stems directly from the brand's Portuguese origins. In line with the spicy nature of Oporto's famous sauces, the Portuguese headlines when translated reveal some appropriately spicy humour.

Oporto's media agency Bohemia developed the campaign in collaboration with independent creative collective The Glue Society.

3.jpgIn her first campaign as head of marketing for Oporto, Vanessa Rowed wanted to push the boundaries with a fully integrated campaign that played to Oporto's Portuguese heritage in an irreverent style.

Says Rowed: "We are a6.jpg youthful brand with undeniably delicious food and an irreverent spirit - and a Spicy Portuguese heritage at our core. Bohemia and Glue Society have taken this campaign to a literal and exuberant execution."

The campaign encourages the audience to translate the Portuguese headlines via their mobile phones - using text, Shazam scanning and Google Translate.

The translations reveal the spicy humour of the brand - and links take the audience directly to GOBBLE.jpga campaign hub  where they can create their own spicy headlines (verified by GOOGLE_TRANSLATE.jpgGoogle Translate) and share with their network of friends.

I have more interesting things to do on my phone.

No words at all, the QSR category is so badly under-serviced by creativity, this is truly bad. Red Rooster is even worse.

The client should take most of the blame for this, it's an intern level idea that got sold and executed poorly.
