Swedish food brand Oatly has served up a typical platter of eye-catching, head-scratching, text-heavy out-of-home (OOH) creative advertising to New Yorkers, but in a twist, the company revealed it’s the same campaign that already ran over Christmas which nobody saw.

Back in mid-December Oatly took over the Wall Street subway station with a series of ads touting its products. The trouble was most city dwellers were on vacation those last couple of weeks in the run-up to Christmas.

Capitalizing on this, the dairy milk-alternative brand decided to get a little ‘meta’ and let passersby know that while they were having some much-deserved time off they missed the campaign. Each of the ‘new’ ads is a photograph of the old creative with text sprawled over the top stating: ‘While you were away for the holidays, this ad ran here.’
