Description of the Project:
To present Travel & Surf, Deutsche Telekom’s easy solution to go online abroad, we drew
the attention to the absurdity of tourist's behaviour while looking for Internet connection.
We created José and his "Wi-Fi Dogs” that are supposedly trained to sniff Wi-Fi spots.
Through a series of mockumentaries we get to know all about this revolutionary business
idea, following tourists on funny journeys on the hunt for Wi-Fi. Reinforcing our campaign
message "LOOK FOR THE FUN. NOT FOR THE WI-FI." through all touchpoints, our
summer campaign was a hilarious reminder to better book Travel & Surf on your vacation.
