Describe the objective of the promotion.
In order to launch J.J. Abrams' new series, 'Alcatraz', we decided to give our viewers a prison-like experience from the comfort of their own home

Our chef 'Butch' was in charge of preparing a truly disgusting meal that would be delivered by our inmates in the prisoners van, always under the custody of a police man. Each order came with a dossier with detailed information about the series.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
We promoted the service, as any other food delivery would. We used junk mail, posters, fridge magnets, etc. Orders were taken by phone or on the website. We even created a customer service call centre to receive complaints.

Such a peculiar delivery soon caught the media's attention and we even made a delivery to one of the highest rated TV shows in the country, which guaranteed Alcatraz was the most successful launch of the season.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
To launch the most important show of the season (Alcatraz), we decided to bring part of the incarceration experience into our viewers’ homes, and therefore created Alcatraz Delivery, an actual delivery service for disgusting prison food. The food was delivered by an inmate in a police van, escorted by a policeman. Orders came with a dossier containing information about the series. We also created a customer service number that was manned by the prisoners, in case anyone had the courage to complain about the quality of the food or the service.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
More than 1,500 orders were delivered during the first 2 weeks, generating buzz about the show and making Alcatraz the most watched première of the season, with 4.8m viewers.
