Intel - The Escape

Intel - The Escape

Intel's range of 2nd generation core processors have enough power to 3D render The Barrier Reef while playing Starcraft against half of Seoul. The problem was, we had to get everyday punters to understand why they should care about this little wafer inside their click-box.

So, how could we make these features exciting for a non-technical audience?

THE IDEA
We created The Escape - part YouTube film, part game, and part product demo.
In The Escape, our audience became heroes of a techno-thriller, using the features of the Intel Core to save a femme fatale and elude two ruthless dudes with a penchant for mysterious envelopes.
Along the way, players picked computerised locks, fought enemies, piloted a combat drone, drafted Facebook friends into battle, and played with special content on their phones in the form of an Apple iAd. This wasn't about watching a YouTube video. It was about playing it.

And play it they did... with 580,000 interactions in the first month alone. 
YouTube weren't happy with us on this one. The boffins over there have since changed their brand mimicry guidelines as apparently in the process of pushing their platform to the limits we almost broke the Internet.
