Fingerskilz Viral Campaign for HP at MRM/McCann (London)


Fingerskilz Viral Campaign for HP

The brief was to do a viral campaign for HP during the period of the World Cup but, because they were not official sponsors, we weren’t allowed to mention football. We created our own sport of fingerball to rival the World Cup action. Our hero had a blog updated during the World Cup to show off his finger skills, to explain more about his passion and showing people how to get involved themselves. The blog attracted 10 million visitors to date and inspired lots of copies on YouTube.
