Freddy Krueger goes viral

on April 3, 2006 by Martina Comments

From Italy a video (viral?) featuring Freddy Krueger (yes, the guy from Nightmare) eating chips. Sorry but I really don’t like the association of such an horrible monster with food. I find it rather disgusting. In order to fully understand it, you need to know that when you eat the Fonzies, you can’t help licking your fingers… via Ninjamarketing.

Relentless virals ain’t viral

on March 27, 2006 by Martina Comments

Coca-Cola is supporting its new energy drink Relentless with an online markteting campaign (via Brand Republic). A website delivers the message “No half measures” through videos animations. I like the look & feel of the site kind of artistic and unpredictable. Actually it’s not easy to understand what’s the product they’re trying to promote, and this can be good or bad, depending on how strong the brand is (so maybe in this case it’s bad…).

The Ice Age is back (with a viral)

on February 21, 2006 by Martina Comments

One of my favourite animated films ever “Ice Age” is about to come back with the second episode. To promote the upcoming movie release, Twentieth Century Fox has created a viral marketing campaign featuring one of the funniest characters, Sid the Sloth. The Bling My Sid site allows users to “dress” Sid and share their creation with other visitors who can also vote for it. Below you can see what I came up with… Maybe you cannot tell I work for a fashion brand now [news via New Media Age]

Be fresh, ski better

on January 17, 2006 by Martina Comments

In France, SNCF, the National Railway company, has launched an advertainment campaign to promote its Corail Luna trains to the mountains. Four viral videos and an advergame to emphasize the importance of being “fresh” when skiing. The idea is that if you travel by train, you sleep during the night and you reach the ski resort perfectly awake and ready to have fun. If you don’t travel by train, then you’re very tired and… watch the videos to see what happens. [via Culture Buzz]

“Viral Oscars” announced

on January 11, 2006 by Martina Comments

Maverick Media has won the Oscar at the Channel 4′s Ideas Factory viral competition. The video, created for the videogame “Juiced” shows two men in a car who discover their videogame console can cause a young woman to lose her clothes. Personally, I very much prefer the runner up, created by Great Guns to promote, the website for drivers who think they have had incorrect parking tickets. The full list of winners can be found on Boreme.

FedEx’ idea is to target middle and junior management with (five funny videos) which showcase FedEx services in sketches set in everyday business situations. My favourite is the MBA one (bottom left video).
