Ten European Countries Ring in 2014 with Deutsche Telekom

An estimated 1.1 billion photos and videos were shared online during festivities this New Year’s Eve, a fact celebrated by Deutsche Telekom with their “Share 2014″ video.

The 90-second spot “was a tight and successful collaboration between Deutsche Telekom’s two roster agencies: Saatchi & Saatchi and DDB Tribal.” The agencies used crowdsourcing in ten European countries — Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Netherlands, Croatia, Montenegro and Macedonia — to compile some highlights of European’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. There are plenty of fireworks, people drinking, 2014 glasses, smooches, and dancing. But there’s also a little girl waking up an old man (possibly her grandfather) sleeping in a chair by blowing a party blower in his face — which is a good enough reason to give this one a view. The spot ends with the fitting #Share2014 hashtag and “Life is for Sharing” tagline.

The idea was to tap into people’s feelings of hope and excitement for 2014 “and use it to welcome a whole new year of sharing”, explains Jason Romeyko, Saatchi & Saatchi European creative director Deutsche Telekom. Links to the video on YouTube are being promoted via social media platforms in the ten participating countries. We expect lots of people will check it out to see if their footage made it. You can view “Share 2014″ above — it’s a perfect way to stoke your excitement for the new year while nursing that second day hangover.
