Disney Uses AR On Singapore Streetscape To Market Kids’ TV Channel

October 4, 2016 by Dave Haynes


This has been done before, but blending some augmented reality with a live street scene at a transit stop remains a pretty good trick for the right digital OOH campaign.

In this case, Disney is using a camera pointed down a road in Singapore to create a window beyond a digital transit poster. When people show up, Mickey Mouse and other characters virtually appear in the “window” of the poster.

The campaign was put together by UK-based Grand Visual, which says on its website the creative concept was part of Disney Junior Asia’s integrated campaign last month.  Dan Dawson, Grand Visual’s Chief Creative Technology Officer, says: “It is always great to work with Disney, an adventurous brand willing to push the boundaries of technology and storytelling in the digital space. We know from our own research that fun, interactive brand experiences – or ‘Disney Junior Magical Moments’ – create longer lasting and more accessible memories. This compelling augmented reality event has created assets that are gaining momentum online for maximum exposure.”

    To note, the outdoor bus shelter displays installed in Singapore, 90% were manufactured by Toronto based Vertigo Digital Displays (now Civiq Canada). It makes me proud to see what the team at a little Canuck company accomplished on the opposite side of the planet in a very short period of time. Shout out to all my good friends at Clear Channel Singapore!
