Check out the cool, innovative work our sister agency Team Epic/MKTG has been cranking out!  Just in time for the 2nd half of the NFL season, Team Epic/MKTG are proud to announce the first mobile keyboard app for a brand sponsor – SNICKERS Stickers – which just launched for iOS and android.

Download it here: onelink.to/SnickersStickers

Building on the brand’s new NFL Hunger bars and the “You’re off your game when you’re hungry” campaign, SNICKERS Stickers allows consumers to talk smack and express themselves in social and SMS Messaging through a branded keyboard filled with custom bars, team partners and other sharable content. As messaging is the #1 mobile activity across all phones (smart and feature) worldwide, eclipsing even social media, we’re excited to help build out this asset and lead the Mars client into the brave new feed-first, mobile by design world.

The launch is being supported by Snickers social channels, NFL players and team partners, paid social & targeted online ads.

NASCAR Speeds Into Downtown Chicago

One of America’s greatest sport towns just found a new, higher-octane passion — NASCAR, when MKTG INC helped bring Chase Grid Live to downtown Chicago.

The two-day fan fest gave NASCAR the perfect chance to flex its muscle as the 16 top drivers prepare for the last 10 races in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Chase Grid Live featured stock-car displays, live broadcasts from ESPN and SiriusXM, sponsorship areas with partners like Toyota, Sprint and MARS, and, of course, some good old Chicago pizza and burgers provided by some of the city’s most popular food trucks. All the while DJ Johnny Walker kept the energy up as NASCAR footage looped on the giant SprintVision screen next to the stage.

After battling a bit of rain on the first day, the clouds parted and the crowds appeared for a live concert from Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, presented by NASCAR’s sponsor, Toyota. It was the perfect opportunity for NASCAR to put their brand in front of a younger audience.

The second day was nonstop, with crowds showing up early to get autographs from NASCAR legend Rusty Wallace and see onstage interviews with up-and-coming NASCAR drivers. But the main event occurred as the 16 NASCAR Challengers pulled up to the event on the top of a double decker bus that had just paraded them down Michigan Avenue. Their Driver Nations went wild as they weaved through the crowd to board the stage. ESPN’s Jamie Little then hosted a Q&A with the drivers that caught them at their most personable and, frankly, comedic. There were lots of great insights into the upcoming races but the biggest crowd reaction probably came as Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and the other top five drivers began goading fellow driver, Brad Keselowski, about his upcoming wedding. It was one of those great moments that makes you feel like you’re watching a bunch of friends having fun instead of a dull and staid press event. Keselowski went on to win the race, so the teasing may have fueled his fire!

All in all, it was an amazing event in the eyes of both the fans and NASCAR.
