An old favourite: the campaign to save the Amsterdam Forest Theatre by Lemon Scented Tea. The Amsterdam Forest Theatre is an open air theatre that stages plays during the summer months. Due to three poor summers in a row, performances were cancelled, resulting in a huge budget deficit.

The group hardest his by a possible closure of the Amsterdam Forest Theatre is the forest gnomes living in the Amsterdam Forest. To them, the open air plays are the only form of entertainment. Documentary style commercials reported on their attempts to disrupt normal life in order to pressure the Amsterdam people to donate to the theatre (Booskabouters = angry gnomes).

The campaign started many discussions on the web and on the radio. The result: the theatre was saved.
