We built
the most expensive piece of art ever!

Natural Light The Davinci of Debt
Project Overview
The Challenge

Natty Light wanted a Social Program that would remind consumers about their continued commitment to the College Debt Crisis in America.

The Strategy

What if Natty Light, a popular and affordable choice for college drinkers, could create the most expensive piece of art ever sold!?

The Execution

We started a social campaign asking real college grads to RENT their real college diplomas. The campaign instantly went viral and we collected over 3,000 diplomas while earning 154 pieces of earned media for a total of 75,975,377 impressions! We then took the actual diplomas and created a 50’ tall floating sculpture entitled the DaVinci of Debt. The sculpture, using 2,641 diplomas, multiplied by the average cost of a four year degree ($180,598.08) was valued at over $476,959,529.00…making it the most expensive piece of art in the World surpassing the previous record of $450,000,000 set at auction by Leonardo DaVinci!

The Result
Earned Media Impressions
Total PR Impressions
Total Social Media Impressions
