Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Many movies come to Guatemala 2 to 4 months after their international premieres. This was the case with the Star Trek DVD launch. Our main objective was to motivate young men and women, 15-30 years old, ABC+ SEL, to buy or rent the movie despite its availability through pirate copies and internet downloads for over 4 months.

Creative Execution
Blockbuster brought the Star Trek experience to outdoors by making Captain Kirk and Spock cross the street without using the zebra crossing.
We transformed two standard outdoor poster sites into digital screens in "La Zona Viva", the most affluent zone of pubs and restaurants in Guatemala City. These two screens showed the tele-transportation of the Star Trek’s movie poster from one corner to the other.

Results and Effectiveness
After two weeks of advertising with a total investment of US$ 4,250 (less than a news paper full page ad) and with only these two digital posters, Blockbuster achieved a 73% increase in all Star Trek and Sci Fi video sales and rentals.
