Activision, MEC And Millennial Media Partner To Launch Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 In UK

Activision, MEC Global and Millennial Media (NYSE:MM), today announced a new mobile advertising campaign around the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the latest installment of one of the most popular video game franchises in the world.

The campaign is the first to use Millennial Media’s new Photo Shoot rich media feature, which leverages the camera functionality of mobile devices to present an interactive, social experience not possible in any other medium.

The creative unit is running as both an expandable banner and an interstitial, and when a consumer encounters the ad, an image appears of an official Call of Duty: Black Ops soldier, with a custom animation in the background featuring white smoke moving across the screen. The consumer is then prompted with the ability to call up their camera, and once a picture is taken, the face of the person in the photo is inserted onto the image of the soldier, bringing out “the soldier in all of us.”

Once the custom image is created, users are given the option to download the picture or share via social media. A second ad unit in the campaign allows consumers to send a tweet from directly within the creative, giving them another opportunity to organically raise awareness around the game release and create additional earned media for the brand.

“The campaign actively encourages consumers to interact with the ad, and lends itself perfectly to social media and viral sharing,” said Alex Hicks, Account Manager, MEC Global. “Mobile presented us with a creative way to connect consumers with the Call of Duty brand, and present them with an experience unlike anything they had seen before. “

“The Photo Shoot ad unit is one of many rich media features we offer that takes advantage of the native capabilities of the mobile device,” said Gavin Stirrat, MD, EMEA, Millennial Media. “One of the inherent advantages to advertising in mobile is the ability to leverage these uniquely mobile features, and this is an example of how to do that in a way that will boost engagement.”
