Mennen deo stick hunt : new models of co-branding

on May 10, 2011 by Laurent Comments

I will let you judge the quality of production or acting in this new French campaign by H for deodorant Mennen. I just suggest that you be patient and get through the first sequence to get the full experience. You got it. A new hunt across the web, a story-telling across web windows like Magnum, Intel, and Arcade Fire brillantly did before. What is interesting here is how deep the advertising co-branding has been pushed.

Heineken Star Player : get in the game

on April 27, 2011 by Laurent Comments

Bravo AKQA ! What a clever and good move for Heineken. The creative agency developped applications which can be played online, on Facebook and especially on mobile, and allow players to bet live on actions during Champions League games. This nice video speaks for itself : I don’t know about you, but I just downloaded the iPhone app, and get ready for tonight’s game. Hmmm… Messi will score during the 10 first minutes. Who bet ?

The Desperados Experience

on April 8, 2011 by Laurent Comments

A new sequel in the long series of YouTube Experiences (Tipp Ex, Kit Kat, …) is offered by Desperados. On top of traditional out of the YouTube player creation, Desperados (a Heineken brand), via French creative agency Dufresne Corrigan Scarlett and digital production agency MediaMonks, delivers some interesting additional interactive layers, like a Facebook Connect integration. Well, we should say “desintegration” actually, because that is the common point of the large majority of the YouTube experiences since Wario Land, the creativity expresses itself through destruction. It looks like YouTube is about to become the biggest on going demolition party on earth !

The Tippexperience, viral mashup/copycat

on September 2, 2010 by Laurent Comments

Subservient chicken + Warioland // The Expendables + John West Salmon = The Tippexperience

Some will consider it as a copycat, others will take it as a tribute to famous memes. Try “tickle” for example… Agency : Buzzman

Cadbury round YouTube player

on July 9, 2010 by Laurent Comments

To promote its roll pack, Cadbury is using the YouTube video player its own crazy way.

Kind of a way to think “out of the box”. Too bad you can’t embed it, as it just a technological optical illusion, but one can enjoy the little bit of non sense fun and craziness the chocolate brand provides once again. This campaign has been rolled out by Saatchi & Saatchi for Cadbury Australia.

Disneyland Paris : They are coming

on July 7, 2010 by Laurent Comments

Great use of Facebook Connect by Disneyland Paris to celebrate the arrival of the New Generation in the French theme park. Pixar characters arrive on your Facebook wall. Nothing revolutionnary, but well executed, nice and entertaining.
