Baseball Superstar Quits With A Tweet

Agency: Dieste


To create awareness around our message of DIRECTV’s superiority over cable, we simply had one of baseball’s superstars, José Altuve, take to Twitter to hint at his retirement. The tweet was picked up by some of the biggest news outlets and sports media sites. And of course the news was followed by a social media frenzy from baseball fans around the world. Our campaign even garnered free media coverage, generating millions of impressions worldwide. We cleared up all the confusion with our TV spot to reveal the truth – that José Altuve would never quit, unless it’s cable. He was just switching to DIRECTV.

This professional campaign titled 'Baseball Superstar Quits With A Tweet' was published in United States in November, 2018. It was created for the brand: DIRECTV, by ad agency: Dieste. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Electronics, Technology industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 5 years ago.
