Describe the objective of the promotion.
Get: Doritos core consumers, 18-24 year olds who want to be entertained; To: Try Doritos two new late night flavours (Tantalising Tikka and BBQ Rib); By: Engaging consumers with a one-of-a-kind late night music experience.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
We created a fully-interactive 360° music video for the track ‘Comin’ to get me’ – written by MOBO award-winner Professor Green exclusively for Doritos. The 360° experience puts Doritos fans in complete control and lets them choose which direction they would like to look.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
We created a custom YouTube channel to host the 360° experience - the first ever interactive 360° video on YouTube.
We created an embeddable version of the 360° video (via which we seeded with influential bloggers, so that the content would be organically spread across the web.
‘Comin’ to get me’ is also available to download as a free iPhone application. Using the iPhone’s gyroscope, consumers could explore the 360° video by moving their arms (or tilting the phone) up, down, left or right; this is the first time such technology has been used on an iPhone.
