Overview

Execution

Keen professionals in Bulgaria, much like their international peers, rarely take a break. They are in a constant hurry — both offline and online.

To help them take a breather, we created Amstel Pause – the first installation that asks users to do nothing. Positioned in the centre of the city, the installation invited people to take a three minute break and rewarded them with cold beer.

We got more than 1000 consumers to try a new product and we managed to ignite keen professionals by tackling a problem common among them.
