Posted by Lucy Halliday On February 02, 2012

March 2, 2012 – Yahoo!7 today announced its first choose-your-own-ending online video campaign for Unilever’s Impulse brand.

The campaign, developed by Yahoo!7, Mindshare and Projekta, adapted the global Impulse TVC to create an innovative digital execution. Leveraging Yahoo!7’s “Encore” advertising format, the execution gives viewers the ability to change the characters and storyline, as well as being able to choose the final ending of the series – creating a truly interactive brand experience.

According to Damon Scarr, Commercial Director Yahoo!7, “Video advertising continues to grow in demand as more brands understand the potential of taking an online video ad experience beyond the TVC. The launch of the Impulse campaign is a testament to Unilever’s commitment to innovation in the digital sphere.

“For Yahoo!7, it demonstrates our focus on pushing the boundaries and delivering creative digital advertising opportunities that are truly tailored to client’s needs,” Damon said.

The Impulse campaign is currently featured across the Yahoo!7 network.
