August 2, 2014 | by:    | China |

The Golden Arches of McDonald’s have now became a giant slingshot that hurls the Red Bird across China.

This is a special location-based campaign jointly launched by TBWA Shanghai and Rovio. The campaign has launched in 1,500 stores in the country and it will try to engage their target audiences to interact with the game and McDonald’s food.

Various medias were utilized, including online media, ambient, outdoor ads and some other traditional marketing tools.
