Microsoft has started its UK marketing activity for its new Windows 8 operating system by installing a giant slide in the Bluewater shopping centre, giving shoppers an alternative to using the stairs and presenting Windows 8 as ‘fast and fun’. Every slider had their picture taken as they went down the slide, received a photo print of themselves and a copy was sent to their mobile. These pictures were also shared on a giant LED screen, in the shopping centre, as well as Facebook and Twitter. The campaign was conceived by social and digital agency Jam, with Slice handling the experiential build.
