Stella Artois brings to life view of Wimbledon perfectionist, Rufus the Hawk

Stella Artois offered tennis fans aerial view of Wimbledon, with 360° and oculus rift technology
To mark its role as the official beer of The Championships Wimbledon, Stella Artois created the ultimate experience for tennis and beer fans alike, which launched to coincide with the start of the nation’s favourite tennis tournament.
Taking inspiration from its new TV commercial starring legendary character Rufus the Hawk, who skilfully protects the perfect courts year after year, Stella Artois brought tennis enthusiasts an unprecedented Rufus-like view of the famous All England Lawn Tennis Club.
Using Oculus Rift and immersive 360° technology, Stella Artois created a series of ways for people to experience one of SW London’s most famous and celebrated views for a full multi-sensorial experience not to be missed as tennis fever grips the country.
One of these was a fully immersive and unusual Wimbledon experience at London Waterloo station where commuters could take part in the Stella Artois Perfect Flight experience.  The pop-up simulator allowed participants to fly like Rufus as they wore headphones and goggles for a fully 360°, multi-sensorial view of Wimbledon’s most famous sights, like the legendary feathered character himself.Captured using cutting-edge drone technology, ‘The Perfect Flight’ experience promised to make participants feel as though they’re spanning their wings and flying over the historic grass courts, past the jubilant crowds, and weaving in and out of some of the greatest tennis matches ever played.
The campaign was created by Posterscope, Vizeum and JCDecaux

Stella Artois Turn Tesco Smart Screens on when the Weather is Hot

We mined 3 years of met office weather and Stella Artois sales data and highlighted that the weather has a significant impact on sales.  Sales actually increase by 15% when the temperature goes above the norm for that month.
This provided us with the perfect activation insight to be live at a moment of heightened consideration.  In July this trigger is 23 degrees.  As such, we built and plugged in a bespoke platform to 400 Tesco smart screens across the UK which turn on Stella Artois Cidre advertising, across TV areas on days when this temperature  trigger is met.
The campaign which runs from the 30th June – 31st July will only display Stella Artois messaging at a point of heightened consideration, maximising relevance and minimising wastage.
Stella Artois are the first brand to use the network in this innovative way, leading the way in OOH communications.
 
 

Stella Artois Whisks People off to Wimbledon in Waterloo Station Experiential Campaign

Stella Artois, official sponsor of Wimbledon 2014, has launched an OOH campaign that utilises traditional and the latest OOH innovations, to build on their association.
A national 48 and 96 sheet campaign, proximity one off banners, and 6 sheets on the way to the event, will all drive mass coverage of the sponsorship. The highlight of the OOH campaign is the use of JCDecaux’s Motion@Waterloo screen, where Posterscope and JCDecaux have developed 5 templates which bring in social from Instagram and Twitter, real-time copy updates from Wimbledon, as well showcasing branded Stella Artois content.
The screen, which is scheduled to deliver what consumers want, when they want it, fuses connected commuter insight with timetable data, thus making every ad shown relevant to how consumers are thinking and feeling in the station.
On days 5 and 6 there was an exciting twist, where Stella Artois gave away Wimbledon tickets through a centre court experience, delivered by psLIVE and JCDecauxLive.
The campaign was planned and bought by Posterscope and Vizeum with media and production delivered by JCDecaux.
This campaign is another example of Stella Artois pushing the boundaries of digital technology to deliver relevant communications.
