RDS + Intact Insurance

OCT 17 – NOV 13  |  MONTREAL

At the start of the new Montreal Canadiens season, RDS teamed up with Astral Out of Home to spread hockey fever among mass transit users. A skating rink was installed in the lobby of the 1000 de la Gauchetière building, with an interactive projector that simulated the effect of ice cracking under the footsteps of passers-by – a spectacular effect referencing the Bell Centre skating surface. Also, the RDS “dressing room” dominated the Bonaventure metro station and highlighted the sports channel’s flagship shows, including the primetime hits “Le 5@7”, “HOCKEY 360” and “L’ANTICHAMBRE”, which are all #1 in their respective timeslots. The enormous, 50-foot-long players’ bench was located on the subway platform, in the direction of Côte-Vertu. The wrap execution continued with a series of campaign posters positioned throughout the station, which leads to the Bell Centre. This marketing offensive was completely created and executed through a collaboration between Bell Media’s internal agency and Astral Out of Home.
