TNT Belgium: A Dramatic Surprise on a Quiet Square:
The viral marketing clip of the day features a good dose of storytelling, breaking down television tropes into interchangeable jigsaw puzzle pieces. There’s a hot chick on a bike, some slapstick, a gunfight – the only thing missing is a helicopter touching down.
With the popularity of Improv Everywhere and theatrical productions like Sleep No More, this sort of promotion fits right in with the popularity of the consumer wanting to be in the middle of something special. You’ve just got to make sure you don’t stray too far into Theme Park Stunt Spectacular territory (though, I admit I probably watched the Universal Studios Miami Vice show over thirty times as a kid).
