Summary of the Campaign
Ultrabook™ Pop-Up Theater is a campaign designed to introduce Ultrabook, a new category of computers inspired by Intel through a stunt and video. In order to communicate the product's thin design and its responsiveness, we synchronized 60 Ultrabooks with a special program, and created the Ultrabook Pop-Up Theater, a human digital bilboard, that suddenly appears around the city and transforms an everyday situation.

The Situation
'Ultrabook' was a new category of computers inspired by Intel, which had the following features: 'Ultra Sleek, Ultra Responsive and Always Connected'.

They wanted to communicate these features to the global audience.

The Goal
Our goal was to introduce the 'Ultrabook' to the world in an unexpected way.

The Strategy
In order to communicate the product's features: 'Ultra Sleek, Ultra Responsive and Always Connected', to the global audiences, we came up with an idea to create a huge human digital billboard using 60 Ultrabooks. We developed a special program to synchronize the videos playing on screens.

Our strategy was to bring this 'screen' out onto the streets and execute a flash-mob style event, film these series of stunts, and distribute the video online.

We created a 'Pop-Up Theatre' by synchronizing 60 Ultrabooks, and having a team of 60 people, each holding them up to create a human digital billboard. The team suddenly appeared around the city of Los Angeles and transformed an everyday situation.

Documented Results
The website was covered by the global media, and was mentioned in 148 blogs. Only a week after the launch,  the number of 'likes' reached almost 3,000 and recorded 1,835 Tweets. The videos were viewed more than 1,393,090 times and the number is still growing.
