    We needed to convince managers and security chiefs of mediums and small stores to install our security cameras, considering our two main difficulties: we don’t have much budget and they already have other security systems as security guards and alarms.
    Our idea: Steal from them.
    An unusual low-budget action in which only needs a “thief” and a hidden camera. The idea was to send the thief to stores to steal a valuable item. Days after, we send a direct mail included: a video of the theft, brochure of our products and of course, the stolen object. Not only did we steal things, but we also stole his attention.
