This Body of Death

Is that a dead body over there?

Agency: Houdini


To promote the book by Elizabeth George, a thriller called This Body of Death (In Dutch Lichaam van de Dood), we came up with this easy to retweet, easy to email and Facebook-friendly approach. We let the readers experience the first part of Elizabeth George's book 'live': the discovery of a dead body on a cemetery. It started out on Twitter and Facebook with messages like ' Is that a dead body over there? Check the live webcam!' And we let curiosity (and social media) do the rest...

This professional campaign titled 'Is that a dead body over there?' was published in Netherlands in July, 2010. It was created for the brand: This Body of Death, by ad agency: Houdini. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 13 years ago.
