The legendary Puma King football shoe will trigger an online campaign Puma will be launching. Indeed, Puma unveiled the launch of a worldwide digital Facebook campaign along with the launch of the new Puma King Finale shoe and the King apparel range.
In a nutshell, the campaign consists of allowing users to create poster images mimicking PUMA’s new retro-styled ‘King Of…’ advertising campaign. The application allows fans to add their image to a template of the brand’s campaign, alongside text identifying where and what they think they’re the ‘king of’.
‘King Of…’ gives the fans the ability to customise their creations, download them for their own use and share them in social exchange whilst also offering the option to submit their designs to the ‘PUMA King Sticker wall’ hosted within the application.
