Sony Ericsson unveils World Cup social media campaign

Sony Ericsson is getting into a world cup mood by unveiling a new social media campaign, backed by TV personalities David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and James Corden.


The activity will be hosted on the Sony Ericsson UK Facebook page, and will be micro-blogged on Twitter.

The exclusive content from the official World Cup sponsor includes podcasts from Baddiel and Skinner, reporting from South Africa on anything and everything to do with teams, managers, players and fans.

Sony Ericsson says it is targeting football fans across the world to take part and interact. It will also host a Twitter Cup collating global World Cup tweets into a visual representation of what people are saying about each team.

To score extra points, tweet using #TWC and your country name. The golden tweet using #TWC will win an X10 on every England match day.

A competition-winning Absolute Radio listener, James Roe, also won a competition in April to report from South Africa using a Sony Ericsson Vivaz as he follows England throughout the group stage, which will feature in the coverage.

Harvey Nichols is launching a surreal fairground-themed ad campaign to promote its upcoming summer sale. The three ads each depict a classic fairground game and in one of the ads a customer is shown winning a Stella McCartney Jacket.

Arguing for intelligent design

Marketing Week

While it was music to my ears to hear clients talking about their design agencies taking a more strategic role (“Brands get to grips with the art of design”, MW 20 May), it was interesting to see the variety of views regarding what strategy is and at what stage to involve design agencies.
