France recently passed a seminal law legalizing gay marriage, and Google and Ogilvy Paris would like to think they might have had a hand in helping that happen.
Before the law was passed, Ogilvy, along with with non-profit org Tous Unis Pour L’Egalite, created the “first social same-sex marriage,” getting same-sex couples in France to get married via Hangout, Presiding over the nuptials was a mayor from Belgium, where same sex marriage had already been legalized -- giving the marriage at least symbolic meaning.
Google Hangout's new feature, which lets 10 people get on a video call together, also let friends and family witness the moment, which was also broadcasted live on YouTube.
