NFL Extra Points teamed up with one of the greatest kickers of all time, four-time Super Bowl Champion Adam Vinatieri.
On Thursday, Feb. 2nd Adam appeared on 16 national media outlets, all pitched and secured by MKTG. Shows included: ESPN w/ Hannah Storm, Jim Rome, Jenny McCarthy (& Donnie Wahlberg), NFL Network, Sirius XM, NBC Sports, CBS Radio and many others. During the interviews, Adam talked about his media moment that would take place on Friday, Feb. 3rd at the NFL Extra Points Kick, a branded field goal kicking activation within NFL Experience. The goal was simple: set a new Guinness World Record for the most fields goal made in a minute.
The next event was the Guinness World Record attempt, one that Adam was taking very serious and had been practicing for at the Colts facility leading into the week. It was so important, that Adam actually sent his own kicking footballs and brought in his holder, former Colts punter Pat McAfee. The event included 10 media outlets and was broadcast live across the country. Local TV affiliates could tap into the media onsite and air the attempt during their local news broadcast. Other media outlets included Fox News, TMZ, USA Today and Sports Illustrated.
It’s with great pleasure to announce that Adam set a new record with 28 field goals in a minute!
On the social side of things, NFL Extra Points put a new spin on their program based on a recommendation by MKTG. The digital strategy team recommended a first of its kind social influencer program for the bank which was highlighted by two live events and a series of video content around cardmember benefits, playful trick kick videos, and highlight videos from the live content. The first live event was a H.O.R.S.E. field goal competition that took place within the Extra Points Kick at NFL Experience with former NFL kicker Jay Feely, former pro-kicker and current kicking coach Brian Jackson, and current professional soccer player and USWNT member Ali Krieger (pictured below).
