Clerasil punishes the 2 idiots

on May 20, 2005 by Martina Comments

In Belgium Clerasil has launched a rather disgusting viral campaign to promote its products against pimples. Luc and Sara star in the “In your face” video. They’re two (idiot) teenagers full of pimples, because the don’t use Clerasil, who have to be punished by the public. Young users visiting the site are presented with series of possible punishments to choose. The most voted option will be featured in the video the following week. The initiative lasts three weeks and allows voters to win a wide range of prizes. The campaign has been created by Axes2, the digital division of McCann-Erickson Belgium (good to see their latest news is dated October 2004…) [News via Digimedia]

On the microsite users can create their own movie trailers, engaging friends and making them laugh. A very nice and funny idea that will probably help Smirnoff collecting quite a few new email addresses to target next campaigns. PS: If you want to build your movie trailer too, you need to cheat the entry page, by saying that you live in England and, of course, you’re older than 18

Virgin Mobile likes to make it viral

on August 21, 2003 by Martina Comments

Digital Media Communications has just released a new online buzz campaign called “Red Academy” for Virgin Mobile. The campaign features a digital film clip called ‘Friends’ that pokes fun at the Orange campaign by introducing viewers to the Virgin Mobile ‘Red Academy’ and its childlike Machiavellian character Damien who compels naive trainees to “forget phone functions and simply phone friends”. You can have a look at the Friends film on DMC’s Web site. As reported today in Mobile Youth newsletter, recently Virgin Mobile has announced that it has reached 3,000,000 customers, confirming its position as the fastest growing network ever seen in Britain.
