Coffee brand Kenco ambushed new Radio 1 breakfast presenter Nick Grimshaw this morning as he made his way to work for his first shift; two roosters presenting him with a year’s supply of coffee carrying a board saying ‘Time to wake up and smell the coffee, Nick’.

Converse‘s global ‘Fix to Ride’ platform sets out to improve derelict concrete skate parks by renovating and reviving them for the local community.

To promote the launch of Man on a Ledge on DVD, PR agency Shine Communications threw actual cash (mixed in with ads for the film made to look like money) from the balcony at The Empire casino in Leicester Square, London this morning.

Frozen Grand Central. On a cold Saturday in New York City, the world’s largest train station came to a halt. In January 2008 a flash mob group from Improv Everywhere froze in place at the exact same second for five minutes in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Station. The stunt has inspired many spin-off’s including the T Mobile dance-mob PR stunt/advert shot in Liverpool Street Station London in 2009.

Pedigree Adoption Drive

Anubis sails down the Thames to promote the opening of the Tutankhamun exhibition at the O2.

A team of agencies led by Freud Communications, for Tropicana, lit up Trafalgar Square 2 hours ahead of schedule, on Monday 22nd January, to brighten a wintry morning for early starters, in a stunt that was created for Pepsico's juice brand Tropicana. The activity was part of Tropicana's drive for 'Brighter Mornings'.

To create the illusion of people flying and to promote movie ‘Chronicle‘, a movie about high school friends who gain superpowers, 20th Century Fox had three human shaped remote control planes fly around New York.
