What’s more remarkable: An anniversary sale or a 20-foot wall of balloons that inflates portraits of people’s faces? That’s the idea behind Old Navy’s 20th anniversary campaign that brought their fans’ online selfies to the real world in Times Square and Hollywood. When people tweeted #selfiebration with their photo and a birthday wish for themselves, Old Navy’s balloon machines would recreate the selfie in balloons — and three lucky fans won their birthday wish.
It’s a techie stunt you’re not used to seeing from Old Navy, but one that stays true to their reputation for putting the spotlight back on their fans. (Remember the giant, human coupon they put together after earning 5 million Facebook fans?) Instead of celebrating themselves, they found an opportunity to do something fun and surprise and delight their customers.
