Lockheed Martin Field Trip to Mars

In an era of Silicon Valley innovation, Lockheed Martin was seen as an outdated defense contractor. Especially when it came to space. It found itself losing its customers to start-up SpaceX. If Lockheed Martin didn't prove its innovativeness, it risked losing further business to SpaceX. Lockheed Martin set out to shift the conversation away from SpaceX by creating the first-ever group virtual reality experience. It shifted the conversation - receiving 180% more mentions in the Mars conversation than SpaceX and 132% more mentions than Musk.

The Madden GIFERATOR

Madden NFL is the most successful sports video game franchise in history. But after 26 years, we had lost relevance. To get Madden back into the pop culture conversation, we created a real-time GIF engine powered by trash talk, called the GIFERATOR, which fanned the flames of rivalry throughout the NFL season. Between developing a new content platform, speaking in the language of our audience, and becoming a certified meme, Madden managed to capture the attention of the Internet while initiating a new generation into the Madden Madness.

#IBMFoodTruck

To demonstrate the potential of Watson and enlist skeptical developers and start-ups, we showed off a creative computer. Using the cloud, we put IBMs Watson in a Food Truck and parked it at SXSWi in Austin. Menu suggestions solicited via twitter (e.g. #Burrito) were reinvented by Watson into deliciously deranged recipes (e.g. Austrian Chocolate Burrito). We drove 100MM+ impressions, and thousands of applications by developers to see what they could build with Watsons help. It was a branded content campaign where the content was food.
