Stealing isn't all bad -- not when you happen to have picked up a "lost' phone that belongs to someone who works at Time Out magazine. Energy BBDO Shanghai set out to prove that nobody knows the coolest things to do in Shanghai than the people of that magazine, by planting a phone on a street and waiting to see how picks it up.

Stops included a spot behind a store that happened to belond to a vintage film collector, an amazing meal and the coolest bar ever.
