To mark the month of Ramadan — when Muslims refrain from eating and drinking between dawn and dusk — British supermarket Tesco turned to dynamic billboards. During the day, screens show four hands and a large number of empty plates and platters. Once the sun sets, food appears on the plates, just as Muslims start breaking their fast with an iftar meal.
The ad was developed by BBH London with input from inclusion consultancy The Unmistakables and is running on billboards in areas with large Muslim communities, including London, Birmingham and Bradford. To accentuate the day-to-night transition, the billboards all face eastwards, with the sun setting in the background.
