Stunts go social

A couple of months back, Heineken challenged unsuspecting travellers at New York's John F Kennedy Airport to ditch their travel plans for a destination of the roulette board's choosing. Now the stunt's had a cleverly crafted sequel by the brand's agency Wieden and Kennedy.

Heineken tracked down people who tweeted saying they'd drop everything for a spontaneous trip and rolled in the roulette board to test their mettle.
