Virtual Gary Lineker hands out free crisps for tweets

Digital marketing industry case study library

In September 2014, three London bus shelters have been transformed into tweet activated vending machines as part of a promotion for Walkers’ ‘Do Us a Flavour’ campaign… featuring a virtual Gary Lineker. By tweeting @Walkers_busstop, along with a code provided to them after they arrive, commuters were given a free packet of crisps by a virtual Gary. The Pepsico-owned potato chip brand ran a competition asking people to invent new varieties of potato chip.
