PRLog - June 16, 2012 - MELBOURNE, Fla. -- Lexus’ online campaign for the U.S. Open tournament that includes digital advertisements and a virtual golf game is expected to see more than 100 million impressions and 100 million social media ad impressions, according to the game organizers.
2012 Viral U.S.Open by Lexus
The U.S. Open’s Web site features interactive ads from the brand and a free golf game called Virtual U.S. Open that looks like the course where the tournament takes place. Lexus is taking this opportunity to push the RX F Sport via these efforts.
Par for the course
The Virtual U.S. Open game can be found on the right-hand side of the U.S. Open site.
Consumers must first sign up for the game on the site.
The makers of the game, WGT, recreated the Lake Course using HD photography and virtual reality technology. Users can play the entire course of just one of the holes.
Throughout the game, players will see branded in-game tee marketers, flagsticks and wind indicators. In addition, every avatar is wearing a golf shirt and hat with the Lexus logo.
In addition, commercials for the Lexus RX F SUV will play to demonstrate Lexus’ “pursuit of perfection,”
The campaign is expected to generate more than 100 million impressions for Lexus in three months, plus another 100 million social ad impressions, according to WGT. This is because the Lexus avatars are viewed by the more than 5 million registered players on World Golf Tour.
The WGT game is designed to allow brands such as Lexus to reach their audiences in an engaging and memorable way, according to WGT.
In addition, both of the best online score and a random entry will win trips to the U.S. Open as guests of the USGA.
As the official sponsor of the USGA, Lexus has provided onsite activities for attendees such as a golf swing simulator, photo opportunities and golfer autograph stations and at the Performance Drive Pavilion.
Attendees can obtain a Lexus Game Card activated with a Radio Frequency Identification Device and earn points by swiping their game cards at checkpoints throughout the course. The player with the most points will win a trip for two to the 2013 U.S. Open.
Consumers can also compete on the golf swing simulator for the chance to win a 2013 Lexus ES.
