Brief Explanation
Hungry to be smarter. Nike's young audience are also hungry for football content. We knew from previous campaigns, that Football obsessed teens scour Nike films on YouTube to spot athletes or moments they might have overlooked on TV. So we made an interactive experience that would reward them, but only if they were hungry enough to find it. We created a film that launched in the Champions League Final.
The 'tunnels' informed and entertained, taking users to experiences, games, and interaction all from the YouTube viewer. They could go to the Nike Barbershop to get a footballer's hair cut, play Sonic the Footballer, take an interactive workout with Ronaldo, explore and buy Nike kit from the Boot room cross-section, test their football IQ with Laurent Blanc and take a tour of Barcelona's football academy with coach Pep Guardiola.
The 'tunnels' were built into the YouTube viewer, so the user was taken into new content seamlessly as if an offshoot from the film storyline. Each 'tunnel' had it's own unique feel, texture and interaction, which kept things surprising for the audience.
Star players could also be clicked on, allowing users to learn their story on how they got to the top. The film would slow down when players were hovered over. Then, in super slow motion, users could analyze the star players moves, using parallax.
