Talking to youngsters the youngster way
The French post has launched an interactive video in order to introduce its bank services to young people. A young man is having a bad day and viewers have to help him decide what to do. As the video progresses, he has the opportunity to use all of the services provided by the bank.
Why it matters

Do serious brands need to rethink how they speak to youngsters and bring their communications back to real situations in order to reach them?
