Zurich, Switzerland 23 June 2018: Today, Grand Visual kicks-off a unique, large-format Augmented Reality experience at Zürich’s main train station for Coca-Cola. The campaign celebrates the FIFA World cup and the soft drinks brand continued support of the game. Lucky fans get to experience firsthand, what it’s like to play alongside Switzerland’s Xherdan Shaqiri on-screen.
Participants are treated to a show of skill from Shaqiri and are invited to get involved and play a few shots against the Swiss star. At the end of the experience, the user is prompted to take a photo moment with Shaqiri, with the option to enter their details to receive a copy of the photo and a chance to win a FIFA World Cup Official Match Ball.
The campaign was created by Top-Spot and market leading DOOH creative services firm Grand Visual, who also directed and built the bespoke creative technology set-up. Project initiation and promotion consultancy were performed by GroupM Out of Home. Media planning and buying was by Top-Spot and Mediacom. Anthem provided video assets and delivered a social sharing App to further engage audiences on-the-go.
Robert Percze, Senior Brand Manager, Coca-Cola Switzerland said: “Coca-Cola Switzerland is pleased to offer a new type of experience for football fans. It’s the perfect way to get people into a perfect football mood right at the beginning of the FIFA World Cup 2018.”
Dan Dawson, Chief Creative Technology Director, Grand Visual, said: “It is great to be working with Coca-Cola again on a project that taps into the most coveted cultural event of the year. The appetite to innovate and collaborate, right from the start, has made the delivery of this project seamless. Clever use of technology has produced a memorable experience that participants can share online with family and friends.”
