For those of you who don’t know what Black Friday is, it’s the Friday following Thanksgiving day in the United States and the busiest shopping day of the year. All major retailers in the US offer crazy discounts and promotional sales to kick off the holiday shopping season. My brother is in the US so every year, I look up Black Friday deals and try to take advantage of all the offers and there are some really amazing deals!
Going back to Lebanon, Khoury Home is apparently organizing a Black Friday this week but they didn’t confirm it yet. Given how bad our economy is, a Black Friday would be a perfect boost to all retailers before the shopping season. I hope they consider doing it on a bigger scale and on a yearly basis.

Lebanon celebrates its 71st independence day tomorrow and some brands and agencies have already shared cool ads and posters. I will be adding more throughout the day but these are the ones that I loved so far.
Al Diwan Beirut
This campaign has been running for quite some time abroad and it’s now in Lebanon. It’s pretty fun as you get to replace the Coca-Cola name with personalized names like Habibe, Abou el Zolof or 3abssoun 😛
They didn’t give out information yet on how we could order these customized bottles but you can check for updates on their Facebook page if you are interested.
I haven’t seen a lot of Movember awareness campaigns this year in Lebanon. I loved the Tarboosh one though. Alfa also has some competition including taking pictures with a mustache. Movember is an annual, month-long event (November) involving the growing of mustaches to raise awareness on men-related health issues, such as prostate cancer.

PS: I’ve reviewed lately the new Tarboosh flavors, check them out [Here].
I noticed today that all the Zoughaib billboards on my way to work (Like 3 of them) are cut but it looks like they’ve been that way for a while. I am not sure if it was done intentionally or it’s a huge mistake but it’s ugly and they should fix it.
I didn’t even notice that was a Lurpak ad until I saw Maria’s post yesterday. It does look like a shampoo bottle and ad.
I took part in Johnnie Walker’s latest campaign #KeepWalkingLebanon and prepared a #Baladi inspired tweet to show my support. It’s a really cool campaign to show that you can’t put out the Lebanese spirit as it’s a fire that burns within us all. I hope you guys like it.

I thought these were Halloween ads at first for some reason. Did anyone try them out?
Unfortunately, the slogan “Where East meets West” no longer applies.
