made in collaboration with creative agency TBWA\parisrod hunt‘s visual campaign – which can be viewed in its entirety at sharethelove.city – is much like a where’s waldo book in the fact that it depicts innumerable amounts of people doing a variety of amusing things at a given location. the colourful scenes in this illustration however, all depict the same thing – partners engaging in some fruity sexual interaction.

the intention of the campaign is to use the playful nature of couples making love in the city to capture the attention of those on twitter. it started with a few tweets from french personalities such as cristina cordula, a TV star; the brigitte, musicians; and yassine bellatar, a comedic writer. throughout the day, as social engagement with the images steadily increases, a mysterious account under the name henry ian vernon posted enlarged versions of the image until a final image in its entirety is revealed.
