King of Donair opened their first restaurants in western Canada and wanted to let people know that they no longer have to travel for an authentic east coast donair.
Based on the insight that airline seat sale ads get some of the highest engagement on social media, we started a fake airline called DonAir. The prank reached over 700,000 Albertans and the ads received a click-through rate of 5.70% (over 9 times industry average).
