A new area for digital campaigns

For example, Pepsi made a big impact by launching an augmented reality campaign that used QR codes to unlock exclusive experiences for users. This campaign was also boosted by celebrities such as artists Mary J. Blige, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem all coming together after Dr Dre’s call. By picking up on the codes of cinema, the brand invited its audience to use its QR codes to access the behind-the-scenes of the campaign, with never-before-seen videos, gifts, and accessories to win, including those signed by the artists.
