Eggonomics 101

The story behind DDB's egg-carton fire truck.

DDB Canada and the B.C. Egg Marketing Board teamed up recently to build a life-sized fire truck in downtown Vancouver made entirely from egg cartons. The idea was to show people that cross-border shopping for eggs was costing the province $3 million in economic benefits, or enough to buy four new fire trucks. In case you were wondering how exactly one does that – build a fire truck out of egg cartons – we’ve got the behind-the-scenes video.
