Starbucks Vanilla Iced Coffee goes underground!

Starbucks Spring

Talon and JCDecaux UK Creative Solutions deliver fantastic campaign for Starbucks at Kings Cross St Pancras Station.

Starbucks UK is shaking up Spring with their Iced Shaken Espresso coffee range in the UK this Spring, and to celebrate, the world’s leading coffeeshop is immersing coffee drinkers in a full sensory OOH experience, ‘Iced Coffee Zone’, in Kings Cross St Pancras Station this April. This campaign was delivered by Talon and JCDecaux UK Creative Solutions.

Running for two weeks until 23rd April 2023, the full tunnel take-over in Kings Cross St Pancras between the underground and the international station aims to bring to life the delicious aromas and sounds of the Starbucks Barista crafted Iced Coffee experience. Commuters will encounter a full sensory experience via sound effects of ice shaking and scent dispensers as they pass through the tunnel.

Sarah Harris, marketing director EMEA, Starbucks, comments: “Who doesn’t love an iced coffee? People say it’s the future, but for us, it’s the present – even during Winter when sales remain high. As we move into the warmer months, we want to remind our brilliant customers that wherever they are, there’s always a Starbucks Iced Coffee available to them. Better yet, you can now have it in an array of different flavours.”

Andrew Darby, managing partner at Havas Media UK, said: “I’m based out of HKX in St Pancras, it’s a genuinely terrific place to eat, work and play. Every day I pass through this tunnel and pick up my Starbucks on my way to the office. The strategically selected site is not only a gateway to central London as proven by Oyster card data, but also to the country and world with its domestic and international train terminals.”

Nicci Loudon, business director, Talon Outdoor said: “Immersive brand experiences are becoming increasingly important to connect with audiences and create valuable emotional reactions, helping our advertising work harder. OOH provides the perfect platform to provide a more powerful, multi-sensory experience by adding sound and scent to enhance an already visually impactful execution creating a fully immersive experience for a new Starbucks favourite.”
