After 4 years of supporting this amazing team of young street children, Clear has glorified them as the champions of tomorrow, exposing them to the world and hijacking Egypt's fans' attention away from the big tournaments and onto this younger, undermined team. 
Today, ranking #5 globally, this team is on its way to becoming the global champion, raising our heads high, all with the help of Clear.

Prom King

It’s the middle of Q2 2018. Sales are stagnant. Rivals are more popular than ever on social media. Burger King needs a big, attention-driving splash, but all nonessential marketing budgets (like social media) have been frozen. What to do? Turns out one very small marquee with just two words is enough to push out of a sales slump while creating over $4MM in earned ad value for zero media spend. And while many lessons may be learned, one thing is clear: you don’t need much to make a big impact.

Let’s create viral ‘products’!

Historical definition of creativity – “Sell more, for less…” Small budget creativity – “Sell more, for A LOT less…” Why should agencies do this only through communication ideas? Why should insight, lateral thinking, and business acumen help create just ads??? With our client, we co-conceptualized Carvaan, a PRODUCT, and India’s latest cultural phenomenon, which has reversed our client’s business stagnancy and catapulted their share price by 250% within 6 months. The power in the product idea helped replace media dollars with buzz and talk-ability. And with zero ad spend!
