Make Fantasies Happen

//  03.21.12

The “Make Fantasies Happen” campaign is the latest from Dare Vancouver for pay-per-view channel Amour. Yep, it’s porn.

The client, MTS (Manitoba Telecom Services), a telecommunications brand, wanted to advertise their adult entertainment pay-per-view service in mainstream media. Dare thought the use of humor could desensitize the topic when advertised to a broad audience. Obviously, they couldn’t use actual imagery from the content, so for this campaign, they decided to make viewers feel like they were about to see an adult movie and then drive them to the TV service where this content is available.

The three spots, “Dirty Pool”, “Officer Biggs” and “Special Delivery” are directed by Tim Godsall (OPC/Biscuit Filmworks), are edited by Geoff Hounsell (Dirty Pool & Officer Biggs) & Will Hasell (Special Delivery) of Arcade Edit and with music by Grayson Matthews.
