Sky’s the limit on out of home for 7UP’s Balloon Street
7UP Free recently took a refreshingly original approach to out-of-home, with the launch of 7UP Balloon Street on Coppinger Row in Dublin’s city centre. Passers-by on Coppinger Row enjoyed a vibrant, colourful installation of hot air balloons in green, yellow, red and white. These balloons were also showcased throughout the night with specially designed LED lights illuminating the street from the 2-8 August, with passers-by receiving a free bottle of 7UP Free Tropical Splash. 7UP Free also ran a Twitter competition where they asked passers-by to guess how many balloons there were on Coppinger Row, using the hashtag ‘#7UPBalloonStreet’. The winner correctly guessed that there were 198 balloons and will receive a GoPro 3+ camera as their prize.
