The Baptizer

Agency: DDB


Lenovo wants to market their gaming hardware and equipment to gamers. And gamers create their identity online, where their actions are synonymous with their nickname. So, they might feel like a ‘nobody’ in real life, but stars in the gaming world. We saw an opportunity to create an engaging activation that combines the offline and online world and a way to erase the borders between the two. We gave gamers a chance to become their gaming selves and be known as their nicknames by adding their gaming nickname as their real legal name with the Swedish Tax Office. All taking place at a baptize ceremony held at the e-sports event DreamHack in Sweden conducted by our “Baptizer” HeatoN, former team captain of the iconic world champions Ninjas in Pyjamas. Obviously by using holy server cooling water” for the ritual.
