The Campaign

Like the rest of the world, Lebanese exhibit interest in technology and have a positive outlook on it, often adopting it early. The buzz sound around Virtual Reality has been intensifying for some time shaking and shaping up everything from marketing to gaming. We created a game that translates what Clorets can do with bacteria and the remains of food that leave an odor in the mouth. Inspired by the game Fruit Ninja, we replicated the concept whereby players had to shoot at smelly food popping in front of them with a Clorets-loaded gun. But we didn’t just do so! We used the latest market technologies, Virtual Reality to immerse the users in the experience. In order to maximize interactions and relevancy, Onion and Garlic personas were roaming around food courts and restaurants surrounding our booth, interacting with people and inviting them to join the game.

Creative Execution

We opted for a mobile-stand allowing us to circulate across malls with the highest footfall as well as venues with clusters of restaurants, therefore being present at moment of consumption. In order to attract users while creating relevancy, we had two mascots, an onion and a garlic, wandering across the restaurants’ and food courts’, approaching customers, teasing them and inviting them to try our Virtual Reality game. Once on the stand, consumers experienced the Virtual game therefore reminding them of Clorets’ functional benefits and were offered a pack for instant consumption. To further expand our visibility, we mirrored the on-ground gaming experience to users’ first screens, Mobiles, via an interactive in-banner game where users had to combat smelly food for 30”. At the end of the game, users were asked to share their info for a chance to win an iPod Shuffle and were invited to visit our physical booth
