Duval Guillaume Brussels sends Ghent to the bowling alley.

As of last month, bowling has significantly increased in Ghent. Cause of this is the new guerilla campaign created by Duval Guillaume Brussels. The campaign aimed for the area around the “Overpoort Bowl”, a popular bowling alley right in the hart of the Ghent’s student neighbourhood. All kinds of round objects in the scenery were provided with 3 little round black stickers, representing holes. The effect of this is that all of the sudden any round object were transformed into a bowling ball. Bike helmets, watermelons, traffic signs, … All round objects around the bowling alley got a “bowling ball make-over”. Even indoors, students were subtly tempted to go bowling more often: in several pubs in the neighborhood, the well known toilet sign was replaced with a sign in which the icon held its head as a bowling ball.
