I hope you find this entertaining – I’m using it at TFMA Keynote next week. Will it catch on in Europe?
Created by Ogilvy Agentina, this campaign combined what many guys like most; football, beer and a night on the town with their mates, into an oversized game of pool, played with mini soccer balls. I like the way it bridges online and offline.
The experiential campaign was launched at an event for 600 people, who played in teams of two, on a pool table over 7 metres long, complete with a built in fridge full of Budweiser, of course! The entire event was broadcast live on Fox Sports and ESPN to huge success, and the inside word is that pubs across Buenos Aires in Argentina, were reputedly scrambling to replicate “Poolball” due to an overwhelming demand from the people!
