Why Do We Like It?
Game Of Thrones has been an active source of high-quality experiential inspiration for a long time, previous campaigns include a pop-up Westeros-themed tavern and a giant dragon’s shadow cast across the HBO offices. This upcoming campaign follows the trend, giving fans the chance to win a truly unique, money-can’t-buy experience, learning medieval combat from the best in the business.
The Iron Throne photo opportunity is also a solid addition, encouraging winners to share their experience across social channels, massively amplifying the campaign’s reach. Overall, we love this campaign’s commitment to the audience, The Night’s Watch are popular characters, integral to the plot line, and this experience gives die-hard fans a chance to become a part of the show they love, building a deep relationship between the two. Experiences don’t get much better than that.
