Brief: Bacardi is known world-wide for its colourful, fruity flavours and also for its strong association with fresh, youthful music. Digital media and online connections also form a key part of the communication strategy of the brand. Among its most popular promotions in India was associated with the Breezer Bustle Music CD and promotional online game – a massive effort spread across 108 days and 36 pubs across the country. Pub visitors were invited to join the on-screen character in a dance and points were earned by following instructions to step on mats representing the different flavours of the brand.
The engagement was further deepened as players were encouraged to publish their scores to Facebook and Twitter thus also ensuring the virality of the message. A significant challenge was posed by the space constraint in the various locations –an innovative combination of the Interactive Floor and Interactive Wall helped overcome that. The movements of the players were tracked on the floor but the resulting interaction with the on-screen dancer was visually represented on the wall. All in all this was one of our most satisfying projects bringing together several uniquely challenging needs like the space-constrained deployment, the offline – online connect and the content into one launch.
Impact: The launch ensured that the Bacardi Breezer Bustle was one of the most talked about launches for the brand and also drove home the message of the various variants in a fun and engaging manner while staying with the musical theme of all Bacardi’s communications.
MagixFone™: A local social network was created displaying messages from the audience.
Client: One Lounge
Objective: Engage audience in an interactive display to gather feedback
Brief: One lounge is one of the premium clubs in Pune with a great visitor list. They organize exclusive events at their facility which are followed by audiences looking for a variety in music, cuisine, ambience and event management. One such occasion was to be graced by World’s number 8 DJ popular amongst club goers. One Lounge expected us to build an interactive solution considering the young footfall targeted. Due to constraint of space, they wanted to keep the solution small yet noticeable. Using our MagixFone, we create a local social network displaying the One Lounge Branding. Users saw a number displayed on the screen, where they were to send SMS using their regular phone to be displayed. Within 1 hour of introduction of this new concept amongst party goers, we had displayed around 100+ messages. As the party went in a full swing, the MagixFone displayed messages in praise of the DJ, his music, the ambience and the event being managed. People posted their message in favor of the next song they would like to hear, working as a cue for the DJ to conclude the party, the party goers way.
Impact: At the end of the party, the MagixFone had displayed 400+ messages creating a unique local social network, without violating sentiments or ethics.
