There’s no app for this. Florida Keys campaign spoofs app-mania.
by Mark Slatko
“Real experiences are always worth more.” So goes the premise and promise behind our new ad campaign for The Florida Keys and Key West. Spoofing the omnipresent iPhone app spots with their endless variety of apps, we seized the opportunity to demonstrate how the beautiful, natural and personal moments in The Florida Keys can’t be digitized and stuffed into a handheld mobile device. Showing breathtaking footage throughout The Keys, the TV claims, “There’s no app for this…there’s no app for this…and there’s definitely no app for this” – the latter referring to one of the Florida Keys’ celebrated sunsets. The spot will launch on the web this month and segue into national media in January, reinforced by a national print campaign. We’re even launching a “No app” app to use on your actual iPhone. The Monroe County Tourist Development Council considered a couple of approaches for their winter season and determined that the “No app” concept was the most contemporary and thought provoking. Look for it online beginning next week.
