Burger King Launches All Whopper, All the Time DirecTV Channel
As a lame duck agency, what sort of work do you do to insure your legacy leaves a positive imprint on the industry? Well, if you're Crispin Porter + Bogusky's, you make damn sure a lot of people get their hands on your clients product. In this case, the product is the Whopper from Burger King.
CP+P launched a channel on Direct TV; channel 111. The only thing that airs on Channel 111 is an image of a spinning Whopper. Yes, that's it. But there's more. If people stare at the spinning burger long enough, they will see prompts that will give them information on how to get their hands on a Whopper. The longer they stare, the more Whoppers they can get.
So far, 50,000 Whoppers have been given away. We're told people have collectively stared at this channel for over 300,000 minutes so far. Thata figure is expected to hit 810,000 by the weekend. Nice work, CP+P.
