how far would the world go
for Game of thrones?
It wasn’t about raising awareness of THE show,
but raising awareness TO
the power THE show HAS.
The biggest show on TV was coming to an end, and we knew we had die hard Game of Thrones fans in every nook, company board and cranny, who would do anything to be a part of it.
So to celebrate the final season we created a campaign that challenged and every Thronie to push themselves, their companies and employers to go as far as they could, and prove their devotion and loyalty #forthethrone.
So the months leading up to Game of Throne’s final season, we convinced a beer brand kill their spokesman during Super Bowl, an NBA team to change their team name, talked world wide fans into giving us 365,88.237 liters of blood to the Red Cross, a burger chain to adopt our fake language, Oreo into changing their cookie and many many more epic displays of devotion, by fans for fans.

We started with a simple out of home campaign and teaser video showing the great lengths characters and fans alike have gone #forthethrone.
Mobilizing the cast, celebrity fans, crew, artists and mega fans to kick off content all for the throne.
The first true sacrifice happened right after half time when Budweiser let us kill their Super bowl mascot, in true game of thrones style - getting his head crushed by the mountain.
NEXT we asked for blood,
lots and lots of real blood.
Partnering with Giant Spoon and the Red Cross, we created events at SXSW and all across the world to exact pints of blood from our global army of fans.
then We scattered iron thrones across the world to Literally
see how far people would go #forthethrone.
Then came the fans
FLIPPING NEW YORK’S BIGGEST BURGER CHAIN TO HIGH VALYRIAN
We worked with Shake Shack and David J Peterson (the creator of Game of Throne’s fictitious language “High Valyrian”) to develop a secret menu you could only order if you learnt it by heart.
Everything from “Bacon” to “calories” was translated and given a new meaning. We even worked with Shake Shake’s innovation kitchen to develop “Dragon Glass” a carbon-blackened honey comb that could be shattered to look like the shards of dragon glass in the show.
