To raise awareness of the new range of door-in-door refrigerators from LG, we needed to get the buzz going online. The Internet is full of lively conversations, but when was the last time someone had one about a fridge?
We created the world’s first tweeting refrigerator. The fridge was set up at the production company “Baluba” run by Swedish comedian Peter Settman and his friends. Every time someone opened the doors, the fridge sent out a tweet with an attached live video stream. People got an “inside” view into the daily work and a chance to see visiting celebrities.
We didn’t have to start the conversation. The fridge did it for us: several international news sites picked up the story about the worlds first tweeting refrigerator.
But not only that: the search word “LG” rose by 32% in Sweden during the campaign. The campaign message spread globally to over +1.200 influential blogs and newspapers which gave LG some well earned PR. Estimated PR value = 1.7 million Euro. Earned media with a reach of 76 millions.
