Brief and Objectives
- Launch a dancing game title, and thereby create the dancing game category
- Educate on ‘how’ and encourage trial en masse!
- Create an asset that could take the game to high streets, festivals, universities, events and beyond.
- Develop a Just Dance concept to work alongside Rita Ora in a concert setting
TED challenged the brief to include an asset that would tour the concept to multiple sites and the ‘Just Dance Disco Bus’ was born! The modified flatbed lorry, complete with large screens, giant disco ball, sound sensitive disco floor and 2k sound rig, and allowed for up to 20 people to join in the fun at one time – with hundreds of onlookers joining in too. The strategy of allowing many to play, and even more to join in while watching, quickly established the accessibility of the title – making the Just Dance instantly successful. The Disco Bus concept allowed TED to take the activity to many events, festivals and universities over the years, as well as gaming events like Eurogamer and Comicon. The activity won a host of awards and became famous throughout the industry. Ubisoft presented TED with two Gold Discs in recognition of the agencies part in helping to sell well over 4 Million games in the first couple of years.
