To punish or to win it?

Its always the case where the ‘do it or die’ approach really  works. What we are seeing here is a brilliant idea that really takes this perspective to a great new height. #Gofuckingdoit is a site that allows people to swear and make promises to themselves on the premise of monetary punishments should they failed to accomplish their desired goal. Best of all, you can also help motivate someone by sending him/her a challenge. It is literally challenging the person’s faith in keeping to his/her desired goals. Powered by several sponsors, could this be a highly effective way of fulfilling people’s goals or just another interesting marketing gimmick to punish people further?

People need to understand that for something really groundbreaking, it is not just injecting pure creativity, there is an imperative need for unconventional content. Heineken’s social experiment, ‘Routine Interruptions’ placed thousands of people in a dilemma, in a decision making scenario. And I like decision making scenarios. You get people all cold feet and under stress while they attempt to make a really scary decision. In this case, the answer to an ultimate night out is simply picking up the phone, mustering up the courage to do exactly what the caller says. People get really scared when they don’t know what unfolds and this level of suspense is what builds the plot for this campaign. Excellent work there, Heineken.
