Windows 8 Fast and Fun


Microsoft has started its UK marketing activity for its new Windows 8 operating system by installing a giant slide in the Bluewater shopping centre, giving shoppers an alternative to using the stairs and presenting Windows 8 as 'fast and fun'. Every slider had their picture taken as they went down the slide, received a photo print of themselves and a copy was sent to their mobile. These pictures were also shared on a giant LED screen, in the shopping centre, as well as Facebook and Twitter. The campaign was conceived by social and digital agency Jam, with Slice handling the experiential build.

Ambient advertisment created by Jam, United Kingdom for Windows, within the category: Electronics, Technology.

Older than advertising. And it's not true, the product is not good.
