Description

We created the first ever branded, live, interactive game show on social media. Four influential gamers, divided into two teams, fought in a real-life hunt to be the first to catch Pablo Escobar. But only with the support of their fans, who could follow the hunt live, did they have a chance of catching him.

Execution

Inspired by the real hunt for Pablo Escobar and set in a replica of the DEA office from the series, the show followed influential gamers competing against each other as DEA agents. Via monitors from the Narcos era, the gamers could interact with their fans throughout the hunt. Only with their fans help did they have a chance of catching Pablo. The 90-minute stunt was live streamed on Twitch, Facebook and YouTube.

Outcome

The show reached 1.5+ Million viewers, received over 500,000 online interactions, became a trending topic on Twitter and was covered by some of the biggest gaming portals in Europe.
