Appletiser & TBWA have launched a ground breaking Augmented Reality experience by Director, Graeme Carr


9 short stories, written & directed by Carr, with Shane Forbes, Vincent Osmond & Mike Groenewald (CD) from TBWA for Appletisers Valentine's Day Promotion, follow Johnny Appleseed and Apple Blossom, two star-crossed lovers, and a mischievous cupid. 


The romance theme presented team with the opportunity to create a unique application of AR technology based around the “Coupling” theme of Valentines day.


Pairing any two of the romance-themed labels on limited edition Appletiser bottles triggers one of the 9 augmented reality stories unique to that label combination and detection order.


The multiple, non linear narratives and unique-combination aspect of the campaign results in the customer needing to collect all the bottles in order to experience the full story.
