Qualcomm Gets Viral Hit From Snapdragon 'Photobooth' Stunt

Consumer Marketing From a Company That Makes Chips for Smart Phones

By Published on .

Tech dominates the Viral Chart again this week, with mobile and game consoles locking up the top spots. and Samsung's Galaxy campaign back in the No. 1 spot after dropping off the list entirely last week. With more than 70 related clips, the promotional effort gained close to 5.8 million total views.

It was joined on the list, unsurprisingly, by campaigns promoting the new Sony Playstation and Microsoft Xbox.

An interesting newcomer, however, is Qualcomm -- not as familiar a face to consumers as, say, Xbox. The wireless technology company scored the No. 2 spot with video freezing remarkable moments using 130 smartphones to make a sort of photobooth in the round. The ad shares images and footage from a Qualcomm stunt in Venice, Calif., but the attraction is currently touring the country.

Honda has also edged onto the chart with an optical illusion-themed spot just a week after Ray Ban made a splash with an anamorphic "Never Hide" video.
