Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
At the end of june 2009, Michael Jackson died. Studio Brussels, a major Belgian radio station felt that they ànd their listeners should pay tribute to the king of pop.
We needed a direct approach to all Michael Jackson fans, in order to bring them on the platform, and to strengthen it’s position as the one and only Belgian music chain.
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Instead of just playing some Michael Jackson records, we did something much more valuable, by offering Michael Jackson fans a platform to tribute their hero. Thus strengthening our position as the one and only music chain. The chain that understands music lovers better than anyone else.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
So we used his most famous dance move: the moonwalk and created eternalmoonwalk.com
A website, where people could easily upload their own version of the moonwalk.
By putting the videos side by side, we created the never ending moonwalk.
On friday the campaign was launched via some important blogs, Twitter and Facebook.
A radiocommercial supported the site, and during their radioshows the studio brussels presenters invited people to participate. Several moonwalk banners were put on music platforms.
Every day a new top ten of the best moonwalks was posted online. The direct response was huge.
Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.

Numerous newspaper and magazine articles.
Media coverage valued at over 34.000.000 euros.
