The concept was to allow users to play the game, and as they would break each brick, the key features of the Galaxy S4 would get revealed. This would help users discover a new world of companionship that the Samsung Galaxy S4 offered, in a fun context. The campaign’s creative was built on a Rich Media Ad (HTML5) & key features of the Galaxy S4 like Drama Shot, Smart Pause/Smart Scroll, Air Control etc were highlighted as each brick broke. To reach the right target audience, Vserv.mobi targeted the ads on it’s premium AppWrapper inventory, that provides full screen ads at launch and exit of 20,000+ Apps! Thus reaching an evolved audience of App users in the right context and in a clutter-free environment. Being a HTML5 creative, it was also fully compatible to run on the Mobile Web inventory of the Vserv.mobi network.
