On November 8, 2021, well before the first snowfall, wefaked a snowstorm in Joliette, Quebec, burying a bus shelter in artificial snow to not only give locals a taste of winter, but also invite them (with the help of Patrick Morin’s promotional squad) to test out avariety ofGarantsnow shovels. Intended to amplify the brand’s out-of-home campaign, the unexpected snowfall snowballed into a huge success.
The local newspaper and radio station quickly broke the news, and a few thousand residents eitherheard about the stunt or showed up to witness the snowstorm for themselves. More than100 people tested the snow shovels onsite and received a gift card for their efforts. Cars honked as they drove past, passersby smiled and waved, and countless children stopped to play in the snow, creating an avalanche of positive feedback that turned an unexpected snowfall into a moment of pure joy.
