On 8th October, the 2nd stage of the project began when forty-five of the best photographs were shown around the world in the largest photography exhibition ever staged – reaching an estimated worldwide audience of 46 million over a period of 48 hours. The massive operation was executed by the Posterscope network and involved 284 digital networks, 73 media partners and over 85,000 screens across all the major continents. This global synchronised exhibition kicked off on the farthest easterly screen in Sydney, Australia and traveled across the world until it reached the most westerly screen in the USA.

Each site was fully branded with a hotel door, a welcome mat and hotel wallpaper to give the impression of actually stepping into the hotel. The campaign was planned and created by OMD and Posterscope.
The McCain’s OOH campaign, planned and bought by PHD and Posterscope, involves strategically targeted sites that link the creative message with the environment as well as a number of special build interactive bus shelters and 6 sheets.

Seattle-based artist and science illustrator, Marlin Peterson, was commissioned to paint a mural in his city. Rather than a standard wall mural, he chose a roof of a building right underneath the Seattle Space Needle where, using an optical illusion technique called trompe d’oeil, he painted two giant daddy long-legs. The monstrous bugs look as if they’re taking over the building when viewed from above, and the Space Needle makes a great location for viewing Peterson’s terrifying mural.
