    Ad of the Week: Iarnród Éireann – Publicis Dublin

    The Lowdown:

    Publicis Dublin create a tongue in cheek campaign for Irish Rail/ Iarnród Éireann. The campaign encourages the public to use its intercity service by showing them that they’ll enjoy the train journey so much they might not want to get off. Publicis Dublin brought this idea to life with a 40-second TV spot, which shows a man returning home from being away on business. He’s excited about finally being reunited with his family, but when it comes time to get off, he has a decision to make: family or train. Surely, there’s only one winner there. This campaign also includes: 20-second and 5-second online video, outdoor formats, digital display and a 30″ radio ad. This humorous and brilliantly simple idea reinforces the brand tagline: Time is better spent with Iarnród Éireann.
