The brand wanted to harness the power of digital to change that perception and drive awareness, engagement and trial during their biggest selling season of the year: Halloween.
It doesn’t take a Nostradamus to realize that the future seems more uncertain than ever. As a result, our target spends more time seeking out tools that might shed light onto what’s to come, boosting the popularity of fortune-telling techniques like astrology, zodiac and horoscopes.
We decided to translate the brand’s heritage into a custom Augmented Reality tarot card experience coined “Divine the Darke”, that offers consumers a glimpse into what their futures might hold.
Each reading comes to life an as immersive AR experience delivered through Snapchat.
From a visit to the Herbologist’s ingredient-filled shop to a hunt for the brand’s iconic stag in the mysterious Darke Woods, each lens functions as a tarot card fortune inspiring the possibilities of the night, and suggesting a Jägermeister cocktail pairing to go along with it. Snapcodes embedded in on and off-premise collateral like custom coasters bridge the gap between the digital and physical experience.
The campaign outperformed Snapchat engagement metrics across the board—driving a 6.25% share rate, versus the average of 1.3%, and play time of 124 seconds versus the average of 12 seconds.
