The Coca Cola Video Puzzle

At this point one would hope that every advertiser is putting their TV commercials online in a branded environment.  Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that people want to watch or in any way interact with those commercials, though a healthy dose of paid media to drive viewership and awareness certainly helps.

More importantly, how do you get them do more than just watch your ad?  In other words, how do you get them to go from a passive viewer to actually DOING something.  This work from e-dologic Israel provides a nice solution.  They developed a Facebook app that turns the spot itself a video puzzle that users need to piece together (with the opportunity to win prizes of course!).  I took a crack at it, which you can see in action below.


It's also worth checking out the case study below for some impressive results.  More than 350,000 views, but incredibly users who took part watched the ad 23 times on average!
