Carlton

Bomb, Cup

Agency: BBDO

Description

Brief:
After Carlton Draught's success with the 'Skytroop’ TVC, we were asked to create an interactive promotion, which leveraged this imagery.
Implementation:
Contestants donated their crappy old car (the ‘bomb’) during a two week radio promotion hosted by Australia’s most popular drive-time radio team, “Hamish and Andy”. The audience decided the winner (Gill) by voting online on the worst ‘bomb’. A second contestant (Bill) was chosen via an on-pack promotion. It was Bill’s job to decide when to drop Gill’s car out of a plane flying at 14,000 feet. The deal was, if he hit a 1km target on the ground, he won $100,000. If he missed, he and Gill got nothing.
Results:
Highest March sales in history. Every free-to-air national news show
Why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product:
Promoted on in-store posters, cartons and the web, the contestants entered online using a unique code found on Carlton Draught cartons. On the day of the drop, six 90 second webisodes streamed live from the Hamish and Andy website, watched by 992,000 people each day. Viral films followed online. The target market was 18 to 40 year old urban, educated guys who want to enjoy life by having a balance between work and play. Carlton Draught has begun to be synonymous with large scale, funny, dumb stunts.

This professional campaign titled 'Bomb, Cup' was published in Australia in June, 2009. It was created for the brand: Carlton, by ad agency: BBDO. This Ambient medium campaign is related to the Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted almost 13 years ago.
