BETC Euro RSCG: Sci Fi channel campaign

Paris-based agency BETC Euro RSCG took an unusual approach in its new campaign to raise awareness of the Sci Fi channel in France with this integrated campaign incorporating ambient, radio, press, film and online

Ten alien ‘children’ were placed across eight French cities, with fans encouraged to search for them by following clues placed on a website and on radio ads. Flyposters were used to advertise the website around the towns. “We aimed to create an emotional link between the brand and consumers who aren’t necessarily fans of science fiction,” say creatives Benjamin Le Breton and Arnaud Assouline who came up with the idea.

Each alien-child found earned the rescuer a reward of €500. Once nine of the figures were located it was revealed that the tenth had been placed in an orphanage, where it could be interacted with via a website and a page on Facebook.
