The Bear Hunter

Posted by Richard Pentin on September 5, 2010

This campaign by Tipp-pex was doing the rounds last week and had everyone in the office in stitches.  A hunter encounters a wild bear in the woods and instead of shooting it he invites the viewers to rewrite the script, building on the brands strapline ‘white and re-write’.

In fact, it has all the ingredients to ensure viral success.

I can’t remember the last time I used Tipp-ex so hats off to Paris agency Buzzman for putting this back on our radars.
