W+K Amsterdam Unveils ‘Booking Now’ for Booking.com

By Erik Oster 

W+K Amsterdam has launched an integrated campaign for Booking.com introducing the Booking Now app.

In a series of four 30-second spots which begin airing this Sunday, W+K Amsterdam borrows a trick from “Ship My Pants,” ending each ad with the almost-expletive filled, “The right room, right booking now,” in suggestive circumstances. Each spot presents a comical scenario where immediate booking is a necessity. In “Dead Bed” it’s a grandmother offering up the bed where her husband died peacefully, while the similar “Race Car Bed” borrows a gag from Grandma’s Boy. “Karate” and “Interview” change things up, presenting a couple who are pleasantly surprised by their daughter’s performance at a karate competition and a woman who arrives for a job interview a full day early.


In addition to the broadcast spots, the campaign also includes cinema, OOH and digital activations.
