4Creative: Scared of the Dark

Channel 4’s new reality show Scared of the Dark places eight celebrities in a bunker where they have to eat, sleep and survive for eight days in total darkness. Along the way, they face a series of challenges that can either reward them with useful items or further complicate their survival.

To promote the show, 4Creative created an OOH campaign that cleverly plays on the show’s key feature. Totally black posters helpfully pinpoint where the celebs are, even though viewers can’t see them.
