Blippar, an augmented reality (AR) technology company, has launched an immersive AR experience for Corona Hard Seltzer, one of the leading hard seltzer brands in the US.
Designed to raise brand awareness and provide a unique engagement opportunity with consumers no matter where they are located, the WebAR experience will run across digital ads and social media channels in more than 15 U.S. states.
The experience allows consumers to step onto a virtual tropical beach where they will receive exclusive Corona Hard Seltzer cocktail recipes, can purchase products and have the ingredients delivered to their home through Basketful. The experience can be accessed in-store or at-home by scanning a QR code on the product packaging. The campaign also includes a video capture functionality, allowing consumers to share their brand experiences on social media.

Whether activated through digital ads or product packaging, COVID-19 has accelerated the need to create a new reality where physical and virtual brand experiences are intertwined.
