LG Electronics announced that the company’s first-ever Super Bowl commercial will be produced by Ridley Scott’s production company, RSA Films. Jake Scott will direct the spot that showcases LG’s widely acclaimed OLED TV technology.

The Man From the Future was suddently all over social. We reached out to Twitter, who always have a major presence at SuperBowl, and coordinated the launch of their new product, Cards, to drive record levels of engagement. 



actionable content at the big game

As far out as two weeks pre-game, posts and hand-raising opportunities were sent out. Posts with animated graphics were placed leading up to the main event. To build the traffic snowball, we also utilized Re-tweet-to-win promotions, constant post updates throughout the game in real-time using custom content and interactive at-tweets with other brands.

Then on game day, the huge audience that had been collected was all notified and activated to the same landing page sign up experience.
