1%: The smallest commercial ever

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 13-12-2012 22:00 | Category: Poverty, Developing World


The Very Small Office from Johan Kramer and production company 100% Halal made the “smallest commercials ever” for the Dutch 1% CLUB. 99% of the image remains unused and only a box of 1% is visible.
Johan Kramer and 100% Halal made ​​a total of 7 mini commercials. Every commercial is made with famous Dutch actors like Ahmed Akkabi and Froukje Jansen.

The campaign is part of the Week of the New Rich.
The 1% CLUB connects people in developing countries with good ideas through an online platform for rich people or organizations who are willing to share 1% of their time, income and knowledge available.

The motto: “Join in: those who can share 1% are the real rich!”
