hasan & partners founder and CEO electrocuted in live radio broadcast

March 31st, 2014, Events, Latest work, Perfect Fools

New use for Raspberry Pi as instrument of torture
#thisisnotanaprilfool

Finnish radio station Radio Helsinki and creative digital agency Perfect Fools have come up with a shocking campaign to stop founder of hasan & partners and his CEO bullsh***ing in a series of radio interviews.

Founder Mr Ami Hasan and CEO Mr Eka Ruola are booked to talk on Radio Helsinki following the agency’s acquisition of Perfect Fools.

Viewers and listeners can send electric shocks to both men if they talk crap during their interview live on air at 6pm on Monday 31 March (Helsinki is +2 GMT).

The shocks are delivered by anyone clicking on either Ami or Eka’s face, which feature in an interactive web banner advertising the interview.

Banners appear on websites including www.radiohelsinki.fi and www.marmai.fi, the Finish business magazine.

Tony Högqvist, creative partner at Perfect Fools, says: “Ami and Eka will wear electrodes connected to their upper bodies that are controlled by online advertising banners. Anyone online can push one of the ad’s buttons and zap either person. It’s going to be quite a shocking experience I’m sure.”

Ami and Eka’s electrodes are connected to a Raspberry Pi and Pi Face with two relays to control the electricity. The Raspberry Pi is connected to the internet via a Nodejs server that the banner is also connected to. When a user clicks either face a command is sent to the Raspberry Pi to open the relay and shock the bullshitter.

All connected banner adverts receive a message when an individual is shocked, so the button is deactivated momentarily to allow for a recharge.

Viewers and listeners are invited to submit questions via info@perfectfools.com.

MovieMatic transforms KFC Russia restaurants into film studios

January 31st, 2014, Latest work

KFC_MOVIEMATIC_05

KFC is the first brand in Russia to invite customers to star in a TVC, thanks to a movie-inspired experiential campaign by Perfect Fools, the international creative studio.

For the launch of its new Bacon iTwister, KFC restaurants in Moscow and St Petersburg will be transformed into film studios with the installation of a fully-automated, instant movie-making machine called the “MovieMatic”.

The MovieMatic is programmed to light, direct, shoot, edit and post process a 45-second mini-feature that is pushed to YouTube.

After the “Action” button is hit a classic movie countdown launches a teaser of how the customer could “Be a Star”. The pressure is on for the actor to deliver four scenes in quick succession, prompted prior to each take by the virtual director’s instructions.

The script calls for customer’s to get inspired and turn their restaurant into a discotheque. Scene one invites the would-be star to take an Oscar-winning bite on an iTwister. Scene two delivers a Eureka moment where the protagonist is hit by an idea for scene three’s disco setting. The finale is a crescendo of crazy dancing followed by the end credits.

Once uploaded to YouTube a receipt is printed with the URL and a reminder to watch their creation, share and invite friends to vote. An iframe website embedded in KFC’s YouTube page curates the videos into those with most votes, most popular and recently added.

A panel of judges will select the best video to star in a TVC to that will promote the Bacon iTwister on Russian TV.

Inspired by classic cine cameras and original Sony Walkmans, the retro feel MovieMatic is built by Perfect Fools. The machine is packed with technology including: professional photography lights, two Canon 5D Mark III cameras, computers with bespoke software, storage drives, wifi router and phidgets for the control buttons, plus smaller light emitting gadgets and microphones.

Tony Högqvist, creative partner at Perfect Fools, said: “KFC is giving customers the tools and inspiration to be one click away from TV stardom in Russia. The challenge of who to cast to appear on TV in the Bacon iTwister commercial is solved by the MovieMatic machine. Using our instant movie-making system every customer can share their natural quirkiness and be an iTwister hero.”

Piotr Rozanski, Marketing Director YUM! Brands Russia (KFC, Pizza Hut), said: “KFC is the first brand in Russia to star a customer in a TV campaign. The aim is to captivate and inspire customers to generate lots of brilliant videos showing-off their acting and dancing skills, then get them involved in a popularity contest to make them a hero across Russia.”

The MovieMatic will sit for two weeks in Moscow from 29 January and two weeks in St Petersburg from 19 February. Customers get five days after their commercial is published to generate as many votes as possible. The TVC starring the winning video will be broadcast in Russia from 31 March.

Global campaign helps girls in crisis, one word at a time

October 11th, 2013, Latest work

Printer installation and social activity marks United Nation’s “International Day of the Girl Child” on 11 October, at www.koskaolentytto.fi.
 
The plight of 65 million girls worldwide who are fighting for an education is the subject of a digital campaign and installation created by hasan & partners.

The work highlights a Girls in Crisis report entitled: “In Double Jeopardy: Adolescent Girls and Disasters” published today for “International Day of the Girl Child”, an initiative backed by the United Nations. 
 
Visitors to the website www.koskaolentytto.fi can watch streaming video of the “Plan Printer” producing the report one word at a time.
 
The twist is that each of the report’s 74,180 words are only printed when someone donates online, or the video footage is shared via Facebook, Twitter, or text.  The money raised will be used to improve girls’ rights and education.
 
The printer is based in a public area within Sanomatalo, a retail and office building in the center of Helsinki, Finland. The website is available in Finnish and English.
 
The influential report is compiled by charity Plan International, the global children’s development organisation that promotes child rights and lifts millions of children out of poverty.  The report highlights the double discrimination – gender and age – girls across the world encounter in terms of education. 
 
Tobias Wacker, creative director at hasan & partners, says: “Girls are the most marginalised and discriminated group across the globe. We devised a locally-based campaign with a global reach.  The words in the report matter to the future of girls worldwide, the Plan Printer reinforces that fact and will ensure more people read it.”
 
Kirsi Mettälä, Plan Finland, says: “Every year we publish an extensive report on the discrimination girls face.  However, it has often gone unnoticed so this year we are asking members of the public to give girls a voice by paying for it to be printed one word at a time.”
 
Bjorn Kummeneje, executive technical director at Perfect Fools, which produced the printer integration technology, says: “With Plan Printer we are bridging the digital and physical divide, using social technology to help people connect with the report and give girls a voice, one word at a time.”
 
Girls in Crisis is part of a wider charitable campaign supported by hasan & partners through Plan International calledBecause I am a Girl, which aims to help girls get the education and support they need to transform their lives and the world around them.
 
Thousands of girls lobbied the UN with the support of Plan International, the Canadian Government and all UN member states, to put more emphasis on the challenges millions of girls the world over face.
