Editor's Pick

When Saatchi & Saatchi Stockholm art director Gustav Egerstedt went on paternity leave, he decided to get creative with the opportunity. He turned his out of office auto-reply into adspace.

With B-Reel as the advertiser, the resulting message garnered so much attention that the agency has now set up a website to market the concept. You can sell your out of office message to the highest bidder, or even donate it to charity.
