Durex: Xerud: The Lover's Fortune Teller

Your love life will prosper... safely.

Editor's Pick

OgilvyAction Taiwan and Durex forgo sampling in favor of fortune telling with condoms. Cultural taboos in Taiwan made on-the-street promoters ineffective when it came to sampling. So, the agency decided to capitalize on Taipei youth's love of getting their fortunes told. They set up "Xerud," a fortune-teller machine, in bars and clubs. The machine made predictions about love and relationships, and also spit out a condom best suited to your needs, along with information about safe sex.

There was also a television commercial accompanying the campaign, along with print and online ads, a Facebook page and point-of-sale displays.
