Results and Effectiveness
Word of the website spread quickly and people in Israel started talking about it, entering it and taking an active part in conversations about Jackson. Israeli media featured prime-time news pieces about the site, contributing to the exposure of Bezeq International's concept and spreading it even more. Millions of Jackson mentions have been registered in the site, a number that continues to grow daily. Over a hundred thousand Israelis were exposed to our message. Every user entering the site, and every new mention that gets logged on every second, keeps Michael Jackson alive, and Bezeq International's message alive with him.

Creative Execution
Bezeq International acquired the domain michaeljacksonisstillalive.co.il. The website featured a big beating heart that is directly affected from real time conversations taking place right now anywhere across the cyber-world. Hovering over dots shows the user a preview of the content where Jackson is mentioned and clicking on it is takes him straight to the site itself. The site was introduced to the Israeli public through nationwide print ads that featured only the link with the website's address.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Brief: As the leading Internet service provider in Israel, Bezeq International wants to continuously show that the web is a world that lives and breathes in virtue of the users' activity. Challenge: On the 26th June, 2009 Michael Jackson the “King of Pop” passed away. We appreciated the potential of cyber mania Jackson's death would create, and took this opportunity to show that thanks to the surfers, web-Michael will continue to live forever.
