To rekindle the nostalgia around this iconic film, we decided to use one of the most memorable icons from the movie – The Ghostbusters Ghost Trap. The Ghost Trap is a device used by the Ghostbusters to trap and move captured ghosts to a storage facility. We recreated the Ghostbusters Ghost Trap in physical form as an invite for the movie influencers. This Ghost Trap recreated the experience of trapping in the devils by placing a smartphone and the prism that we sent along with it.
Interactive mailers were modelled as Ghostbusters Ghost Traps and sent as invitations. 1. Influencers were required to load a video and place their smartphones into the tray and close it. 2. After closing the tray, the influencer was required to place a provided prism on the centre of the screen and hit play. The 3D hologram kit will bring trapping a ghost to life!
By bringing alive this fond memory from yesteryears, we manage to achieve results much higher than what was originally anticipated. * 90% of the influencers posted on their social media * The ghost trapping experience reached around 6% of Singapore’s population organically * Generating 4,507 interactions
The excitement around Ghostbusters has survived for years through the many icons that were a part of the movie. Our strategy was to use one of these icons in physical form as an invite as a bait to build nostalgia and anticipation with the fans. By making them relive the movie experience, we were sure that they not only make a mention about the movie to their fans, but do it with much more excitement.
