FOX SPORTS AND MCI LAUNCH AN INTERACTIVE TOUR
Published December 12, 1994
Fox Sports and MCI's 1-800-COLLECT are targeting a "young, techno-literate demo in a promotion called the Virtual Reality Tour starting this month adjacent to football and music events." Patty Proferes, Dir of 1-800-COLLECT: "We think this will extend our brand personality. We're looking to be fresh and new, and virtual reality is the buzz right now." 1-800-COLLECT has committed to a 12-month "stint with the traveling fest." On tour is a 50-foot tractor-trailer that contains two virtual reality experiences. The virtual reality truck, which was outside the Chargers-49ers game yesterday and the Billboard Music Awards last week, will be in Washington, DC, on Sunday for the Buccaneers- Redskins game, and at the Georgia Dome for the Falcons-Cardinals Arizona on Christmas Eve. The tour will eventually travel to Fox affiliates across the country, "making appearances at special events and provided opportunities for local cross-promotions" (T.L. Standley, BRANDWEEK, 12/12 issue).
