IKEA "Buy With Your Time"

Ad Agency
Video advertising:

IKEA superstores tend to be located far from city centers. So along with opening a second store in Dubai, we also gave families a bigger incentive to make trips to IKEA. We offered to convert the time they spent on the road into money, which they could use to buy IKEA products.

The price of an hour was based on the average wage in Dubai.
