Description of the Project:
In 2013, Swisscom and Samsung joined forces to launch the Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone in Switzerland. The task was to create a buzz around the new device and leverage earned media to reach the masses. To achieve this, we took advantage of one of the unique features of the S4: the eye-tracking technology - and invited our audience to a staring contest.
Special CLP posters fitted with S4's where placed in busy areas giving the Smartphone away to anyone who could stare at the device for 60 minutes. But players were challenged by a number of outrageous distractions. From police dogs and renegade motor cyclists to arguing couples and hotdog dealers on fire - a series of professional actors doing their utmost to create a scene and steal the attention away from the new S4. The CLP streamed live to the web, and users could communicate with players via the S4.
