Voyeuristic Ad Campaign Believed to Be World First

Press Release 15 January 2008

Voyeuristic Ad Campaign Believed to Be World First

h2go is at the forefront of a cutting edge multimedia promotional campaign that is taking advantage of New Zealanders’ fascination with photo sharing sites and a resurgence of game show styled programming.

The h2go Snapped for Cash promotion uses undercover photographers to snap people drinking specially marked bottles of h2go 750ml pure water, building on the voyeuristic appeal bought about by social networking and photo sharing sites. The photos are placed on and go into the draw to win a weekly prize of $10,000.

In a lotto style televised draw made every Sunday night at 8.20pm on TV2, one photo is selected randomly and the mystery h2go drinker then has 48 hours to contact h2go to claim their $10,000 prize.

h2go is pulling out all the stops to find each week’s mystery h2go drinker with high profile tv, press, online and radio ads airing for two days following the draw, prompting the public to help identify the individual. If the winner is not found within the 48 hour deadline the prize jackpots the following week.

The h2go photographers start roaming the country from the 14th January with the first draw on Sunday 20th January. The campaign runs for nine weeks, finishing on Sunday 16th March.

h2go senior brand manager, Nigel Chenery, says; “We believe h2go Snapped for Cash is one of the first in the world to leverage today’s more voyeuristic culture. We’re expecting to see a lot of interest and consumer anticipation around this promotion.

“We’ve developed an innovative campaign which requires minimal effort from the consumer, they don’t need to text in or enter a unique code online or send in any coupons – they simply need to be seen drinking h2go! The public also get to help us find our winner during the search component of the campaign which is certainly unique to this promotion,” added Mr Chenery.

h2go was the first New Zealand mineral water to be bottled in a sippertop pack, and is one of the largest on the go lifestyle water brands in New Zealand.
