10 Great Guerrilla Marketing Examples

Great Guerrilla Marketing is out there but not in Cologne

I love this stuff but I am sorry to say that I do not come across so many guerrilla marketing campaigns in the street or in my day-to -day wanderings here in the Cologne Südstadt. OK, there were a handful of pink bicycles placed at strategic points all over the city at one point, but I can’t for the love of design remember what they were for, a failed project I suppose.

Well, now there is a similar idea but with a twist. A wool shop, aptly named Wool Street, located  on Zugweg in the Cologne Südstadt have presented a Hollander bicycle with a lovely figure hugging knitted wool outfit in last years shade of purple, and it looks great! (my iPhone takes awful pictures so I need to take it with a real camera next time, but you get the idea). The other examples here, I found in an old folder on my computer which I had found online maybe a few years ago, so maybe not the most up-to-the-minute but entertaining none the less.

ok, it is not really Guerrilla marketing, but it is a nice idea all the same. It is a piece of marketing for a television documentary about the ill-fated Marie Queen of Scots, who of course was beheaded for plotting to murder Queen Elizabeth I

nice idea exaggerating Duracell’s strength in a funny way. Works great so long as none trips over that fake cover and bashes their brains in on the escalator steps 😉
