oh dear…

Read that in Netimperative this morning: CheapFlights runs fantasy viral.

“Enjoy Your Flight”, plays on the idea that your dream holiday commences from the moment you board the plane.

The player is invited to choose between either a steward or stewardess to host them during the flight. From there, the journey takes off into video animation where the user interacts with a range of in-flight activities. There is also a risqué element involved, but only by choice upon rolling over the “fantasy” button.

“We wanted to engage with a younger audience by using a top creative agency and harnessing the power of social media and popular video sites like Kontraband,” says Joseph Sikorsky, Marketing Director for Cheapflights.

The result is so crap I’m literally lost for words. No insight, really badly executed, don’t get me started on the cliches… Yes, they will get some views, because they made a deal with Kontraband.

But the main question is in the world of the Internet, where free porn is everywhere, why on earth would I want to see some poorly done soft-porn? It’s not even funny or entertaining. And certainly makes sure I will never ever book a flight on cheapflight!

But this quote really caught my eyes from Richard Spalding, Kontraband’s MD:

“we expect the views to exceed all expectations “.

I love Kontraband though. It still is one of the best website to launch a viral with.

    I’m sorry for thinking you were spamming me.

    Because you had repeated it twice, I thought it was a careless attempt at promoting this campaign.

    I sincerely apologise.
