Puerto Rico Tourism collected salt from the island's beaches and took it to Chicago in a stunt targeting tourists from the Windy City, one of its biggest markets.

The campaign, by JWT Puerto Rico, handed out branded pots of Puerto Rico salt to Chicagoans, encouraging them to sprinkle it on the streets and melt snow in the middle of their freezing winter -- all to get them thinking about the destination when they next booked a vacation to the sun.

Previous inventive camapigns by Puerto Rico Tourism and JWT have included offering astronaut Scott Kelly a free vacation on Twitter as he orbited earth and gave a shout-out to the island.
