Describe the objective of the promotion.
Communication objective: increase the awareness of GT5 and sell a record number of GT5 games in the Benelux.
GT5 was probably THE PlayStation3-game of 2010 that every gamer was longing for. But to achieve our sales objective we had to attract a much broader target: car lovers in general.
Next to traditional media, we wanted to use the power of social media to spread the message about GT5.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
For real car lovers, cars are the most important things in their life.
We wanted them to prove how far they would go, by offering a Lamborghini Gallardo for one day, in exchange for… their girlfriend.
To participate in ‘Swap your girlfriend for a Lamborghini’ you just had to change your Facebook relationship status from ‘in a relationship’ to ‘single’ (try it yourself to see the effect ;-).
Once subscribed, you uploaded a photo of your girlfriend and a reason why you would exchange her.
Participants had to ask for votes within their community which further spread our message.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
GT5 is the most realistic car simulator ever.
For most people, virtually driving a dream car when playing GT5 is about the closed they get to drive a dream car. This is why GT5 gave car lover the possibility do drive one for real, but first they had to prove they really loved cars (even more than their girlfriends).

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
- Heavy online discussions with numerous girlfriends and a few broken hearts.
- 312 participants willing to swap there girlfriends.
- 30,754 unique visitors on the landing page in the first week.
- Notoriety of GT5 went up to 97% in the Benelux.
- Over 180,000 copies of the game were sold in the Benelux.
