Brand Manager,

The Task. Our brief from the client...

Maddox created a highly impactful and fun PR stunt that helped to drive awareness of's great Christmas deals. PR stunt was run on Black Friday to capitalise on on-line shopping in office worker lunch breaks.


Our Idea. The campaign we delivered...

A giant branded Christmas cracker was pulled by a team of pink Santas. The giant cracker featured pyrotechnic special effects that created sound effects like a cracker being pulled together with brand matched confetti. We took it to high profile London locations like outside Liverpool Street station and Covent Garden.
