13.8 NewsBreaker Live
The final push of the campaign came in June with the launch of the first-ever in-cinema interactive audience game, NewsBreaker Live. The game premiered in Los Angeles before the movie Spider-Man 3 and then moved on to Philadelphia and White Plains, New York.
msnbc.com introduced the first-ever audience in-cinema game: NewsBreaker Live. SS+K worked with the Brand Experience Lab and The Bridge Cinemas to produce and present this game. Audience members control the action on the screen by waving their arms. See the YouTube demo at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6izXII54Qc.
The campaign centered on the overarching brand message, but there are also instances where you use your media buys to promote elements of your company or other marketing efforts. A few examples would be a flyer about an event or a newspaper ad about a sponsorship. Each print ad had the URL http://www.spectrum.msnbc.com.
Press coverage and management was ongoing throughout the campaign. It was led by Danielle Tracy and supported and implemented by Katie O’Kane and others.
