Love him or loath him, Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States of America. On this historic day, we look back at what some of the top PR agencies have been up to - from running quirky campaigns poking fun at the candidates to ‘newsjacking’ the election for brand marketing. One great campaign is the Trumping Ship – created by the agency Brooklyn Brothers – this idea stemmed from the notion that Americans will ‘jump ship’ if their candidate isn’t elected.
The website randomly selects a country, provides a quirky argument for why you should live there, and describes the difficulty of immigration. To top it off, it links to ticket prices for a one-way ticket on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017.
