Basic description of the project:
McCann Worldgroup and Mekanism developed a "pre-launch" assingment for Windows Vista. The brief was "clarity", and the goal was to build awareness. We targeted "Modern Digitals", a younger, tech-savvy subset of the Windows Vista target. They are the new influencers and will shape the future of technology. The result: a modern marketing campaign featuring comedian Demetri Martin. The program includes a website featuring over four hours of original content, banners and daily puppet blogs. The campaign culminates in a one-hour Comedy Central special featuring Demetri Martin and program breaks featuring content.
