When you've lived in New York City for a while, you develop a certain impatience for, well, a lot of things. Selfie sticks, slow-walking people, Times Square, slow-walking people in Times Square, subway delays and closures, hour-long waits for brunch. The list goes on.
At the center of all the pain and annoyance is one guiding light—food delivery service Seamless. It's a staple to many New Yorkers, and the brand's latest ads from BBH New York aim to show just how important it is to the city—and how much it understands your New York-related struggles.
The new campaign is a continuation of the agency's previous work for the brand's "How New York Eats" campaign and includes some clever new out-of-home work as well as a 30-second spot, "Skyscraper," which imagines what a classic New York City image would have looked like if Seamless had been around then.
In terms of the OOH work, it's similar to the last batch.
The campaign taps into New York City culture perfectly—from crazy-expensive rent to annoyance with loud people in restaurants—in an effort to reach its target audience, ambitious New York City professionals who are both hungry and impatient.
Outside of capturing the always-going spirit of the city, BBH takes things a step further by creating an ad around the looming L train closure. "The L train may shut down. We won't," the ad reads. So, if you live in Williamsburg, your commute may soon really suck, but at least you can get delicious food to sooth your soul at the end of a long day.
