Desperados Augmented Edition: Entering Virtual Reality

There are more dimensions to a bottle of Desperados than can be seen at first glance. This is especially true for the new limited edition.
The augmented edition of Desperados was launched in France – and is causing quite a stir!

Desperados Augmented Edition with Labels by CCL

 

Heineken Group in France collaborated with artists from 9éme Concept, agency MNSTR and CCL Label to realise this outstanding promotion.
A Step Into Art
When scanning the label with the Desperados App an impressive artwork will unfold in the surroundings like a living sculpture. Street artist and sculptor Matthieu Dagorn created it using Google Tilt Brush™, a Virtual Reality Headset and hand controllers.
Effective Tool
Advertising for alcoholic beverages is strictly regulated in France and snake people aren’t easily wowed due to the daily amount of images and impressions raining down on them.
With the help of innovative packaging promotions like these Heineken Group in France has found a very effective way to reach their main target group of young adults.
The augmented edition is the 19th limited release to hit the market. And the success proves them right: Desperados is the fifth most consumed beer in France (Statista, 2015).
The Labels
Long-term supplier CCL Label was chosen to produce the labels for both one-way and returnable bottles.
The EcoEmballage compliant one-way labels ensure efficient glass recycling. The WashOff Labels can be removed during the standard bottle washing process back at the brewery.
