Google Home of The Whopper
Wood Pencil / Integrated / Innovative Media / 2018
Burger King’s signature sandwich, The Whopper, is full of fresh ingredients and taste qualifiers – so many that it can’t possibly fit inside a 15-second US TV media buy. So, instead, it turned to voice-activated virtual assistant Google Home, and intentionally activated it to finish the message by reading The Whopper’s Wikipedia entry. What followed became the first ever ad that used a voice-activated assistant to extend a TV spot.
