Iconic Spirit Brand, Malibu, Selects Havas Media and Millennial Media for the ‘Best Summer Ever’ Mobile Video Campaign

Malibu, the UK’s number one coconut rum, has announced it is working with Havas Media and leading mobile advertising platform company Millennial Media (NYSE:MM) to deliver a brand-focused mobile video campaign for its 'Best Summer Ever Project'. Using a combination of Millennial Media’s data and video technologies, Malibu will be able to target men and women in the UK aged 18-34, across music and social interests – and open a mobile dialogue as they enjoy the summer season.

The campaign is being deployed by Havas Media using Millennial Media ad units Video TICKER, a global media first, and Video TOGGLE, a UK media first.

Running on smartphones, Video TICKER enables Malibu to integrate time-specific, location-based information from data feeds in a ticker format.

Video TOGGLE provides Malibu with the ability to display three different videos on tablet, customising brand interaction with multiple content and messages. All branded videos will link to the Best Summer Ever competition to drive further consumer engagement with the campaign.

The campaign is seeking to drive high engagement and completed views for brand videos. To provide added value to Malibu, the mobile campaign will also re-target users who have completed video views with standard banners.

Adam Boita, Marketing Controller at Pernod Ricard UK said, "When you combine the rich storytelling of video with the interaction and engagement of mobile, we can ensure Malibu is front of mind for consumers during a crucial activity period. Millennial Media and Havas Media have worked together to deliver a genuinely innovative campaign that we’re tremendously excited to see in action over the summer months.”

“Demonstrating a bold approach by Pernod Ricard and deep understanding of its consumers, Malibu’s digital content-led approach lends itself extremely well to mobile devices and audiences,” added Zac Pinkham, Managing Director EMEA, of Millennial Media. “Our video products are designed to naturally fit into the consumer app experience and leverage the different tablet and smartphone canvases. The results, which can be seen for Malibu’s Best Summer Ever campaign, are a rich and engaging experience for the consumer that creates a real connection with the brand.”

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
