Similar to the top billboards trends this year, 2013's publicity stunts trends were all about creating an interactive experience. Whether individuals became part of a stunt unknowingly or whether they became pranked and were the only ones who didn't know, publicity stunts created memorable, one-of-a-kind experiences for consumers.

Some of the year's standout publicity stunts trends included those that not only created a personalized experience, but also those that spread powerful messages. One particular campaign by Dove made its voice heard by creating a reverse Photoshopping effect that demonstrated just how far the media goes to alter our perceptions.
