On-Star Announcement In Pieces

“This is the last time you will ever have to feel alone on our nation’s roadways.”
GM’s Find The Message consumer promotion is in the news because a hacker broke the Wheel of Fortune-like code, spoiling the game for the rest of us.
Big whoop.

The “period” in Times Square
I like this promotion. It’s a teaser campaign where one word (or punctuation) is revealed on outdoor boards in cities across the US. The web address is also given, and once there, you can make one click to a message board where people work together to solve the puzzle. This is what the web is all about, from a marketing standpoint–creating communities of interest and encouraging collaboration.
