Bud Light/Maxim Magazine Double XXposure Ultimate Dance Club

Challenge

Looking to drive additional synergies with their advertiser/magazine publisher relationship, Bud Light and Maxim magazine wanted to create an exclusive event where millennials would die to attend.

Solution

  • RFor thisaWe developed and created the “ultimate dance club” in a non-traditional unique venue for an one night exclusive Bud Light / Maxim Magazine Double XXposure party in multiple markets. B2C program, we started with pre-promotion by deploying a team of attractive female Brand Ambassadors dressed in hard hats and construction vests to look for fans. These gals visited the hottest bars and restaurants of Hollywood Blvd and Westwood as well as Fraternity Houses on the campus at UCLA. They had one goal in mind – find the men and get them excited about the show and Bar Stool Racing.
  • RStreet Teams scouted the “beautiful people” in clubs and bars in each city and provided a VIP invite to attend the event with 3 guests.
  • RPart of the lure of the VIP experience, was the event was filmed as a Bud Light TV commercial (double exposure) that would air in market in the coming week. Each guest was asked to dress up and have fun in an effort to get into the commercial.
  • RPro Motion provided coordinated all imaginable details utizliing logistical expertise in the transportation, setup and strike of the event equipment to ensure the exclusive events exceeded expectations. And, many of the locations caused a lot of logistical “opportunities” for this Bud Light Maxim tour.
