The advertising campaign will be run mostly offline, for example with tv commercials created by Black Rocket Euro RSCG. In a perfect “guerrilla-style”, the Internet will also be used as part of an unusual outdoor campaign: Yahoo! has rented a huge billboard in New York City’s Times Square, and for 15 minutes every hour, live search terms will scroll across the screen, highlighting users’ actual searches on the site.
