For the launch of LG’s 2017 range of OLED and SUPER UHD TVs, LG Australia briefed their agency Tonic to develop a high impact integrated campaign challenging Australians to experience cutting edge advancements in TV technology for themselves.
Going up against big brands such as Samsung and Sony, LG needed an innovative and motivating communication strategy that both challenged and educated the consumer in an entertaining way. With both TVs representing a major leap forward in picture and sound quality, Tonic and LG agreed that the campaign should focus on the amazing cinematic experience they would bring to Australian homes.
The campaign was driven by the call to action, ‘BRING CINEMA HOME’ and launched in Sydney’s CBD with the construction of a highly realistic pop-up cinema and the promise of an unforgettable red carpet experience for visitors. Social posts in the days leading up to the event encouraged people to pay the cinema a visit and share their experiences online.
On the day, a promo team dressed as ushers handed out popcorn and flyers and directed people to their seats inside the cinema. A short screening then focused attention on the cinematic qualities and new technology built into the OLED and SUPER UHD TVs. After each performance, viewer’s candid, unscripted responses were filmed in preparation for a TV campaign and online content.
