Not bad for a company formed right smack in the middle of the recession.
As for Rebtel, an international calling app, it’s been a long time since I have seen an ad as refreshing as the one the put together in this clip and article, This Ad Calls Total B.S. on Preachy Millennial-Filled Montages.
“According to a Rebtel spokesperson, the brand was “frustrated from going to different agencies that all tried to sell them the same cookie cutter ‘inspirational youth’ video,” so it made the commercial in-house, with one fresh twist.”
You can learn a lot by taking an unconventional approach with your advertising.
