Blockbuster will provide MSN Messenger users with movie specials. The initiative has been presented this week in Italy, and is aimed to increase Blockbuster brand awareness and to improve MSN’s services. As explained in the press release of IconMediaLab, the agency which developed the creative, there will be an icon on MSN with Blockbuster’s logo, by clicking on it, users will reach a Messenger zone to access movies’ information. Here is a screenshot of how the thing looks like.
It’s the first example of Messenger’s advertising I happen to find. It’s an interesting initiative, however looking at the way it’s presented, I’m not so sure users will easily understand that’s a Blockbuster logo (with Blockbuster’s related infos).
