The Mentos KissCam

Mentos has launched the KissCam. Web interactivity reaches new levels... Use your webcam to kiss the girl (or the man) in the video.


I can't decide whether it's a great viral or just a very silly idea by Perfect Fools and BBH London. What do you think? Maybe it's both...

Fantastic! Great ending.

It's a move from BBH to take their television knowledge into the interactive space. Great production but a one hit interaction.

How many interactions does this great idea need? Absolute quality! Incase you need to interact more than once, I found this from Mentos too, also from BBH i think:

I liked the integration of the "pass him the mint" instruction- not to intrusive and cleverly executed.

It's a pretty clever idea that continues the tradition that Mentos is irreverent and light-hearted. It's a funny ending. Pays careful details to those who don't have webcams. I don't see myself making out with the laptop screen, but I'm sure I'd talk to friends about it if Mentos or mint candy were ever discussed. Nice dramatic effect as well :)

the interaction is just based on overall movement, it's not as smart as the original webcam piece
