A fan of The Shining? If you are, this ad is for you.
Home makers IKEA is paying homage to Stanley Kubrik’s cult classic, The Shining, in a new Halloween web film. Created by BBH Asia Pacific, the iconic IKEA showroom lanes serve as a perfect setting for the re-enactment of the infamous Overlook Hotel scene of a small boy cycling tricycle along eery corridors to equally eery music.
Take a look:
The Halloween campaign was the perfect opportunity for IKEA to communicate its daily late night shopping offering of 11pm to its Singapore customers. As an extension to the web film, a social media video hunt will run parallel to the campaign where consumers will be invited to spot and win products that appear in the film.
