Sharp Aquos "More to See"

Published on .

It was the Errol Morris-directed spots that drove people to the online component, but the "More to See" campaign was ultimately all about its interactive elements. Like Halo2's "I Love Bees," the campaign was one that got couch potatoes to participate in a real-world game of skill and puzzle-solving with a goal to eventually win one of the advertised Aquos LCD televisions, while being entertained and educated about the product along the way. With writers posing as the spot's characters, the story unfolded in blog-like diaries that interlinked to uncover clues, including anagrams, historic symbolism and numeric code.
