Brand Activations Never Fail

HBO turned NYC’s steam vents into blazing joints for a new series called High Maintenance.

What a brilliant idea for a brand activation- this form of Out-of-home advertising from HBO – New York City steam vents showcase season 2 of High Maintenance, the show about a marijuana-dealing deliveryman.

Working with agency The Gathery, the pay-cable network put up installations for one day only in the Union Square and the Meatpacking District in Manhattan, and Williamsburg in Brooklyn.


The point was simply to “re-engage the series’ current fan base and to incite curiosity among those who have not yet discovered the show,” HBO states.
