Mad over donuts go goa gone Zombie Keeler Positives

Both Mad Over Donuts and ‘Go Goa Gone’ share the same target group (read young, restless and adventurous) and thus, associating with this movie is a good idea for promotion.  As the film has just released and people are curious about it creating a donut about this mad whacky film is a good strategy.

Participation is simple and enjoyable with the flash game and promotion on Facebook and Twitter simultaneously has helped grab attention for the endeavor.  The leader board keeps people motivated.  Navigation with the dedicated Facebook app is smooth.

The campaign gets the thumbs up for integrating a number of contests across social networks like Facebook and Twitter. The offline edge is there mainly with the opportunity to meet the film stars. However, the offline twist can be found in the game with its look, feel, weapons and even the character resembling Saif Ali Khan being in sync with the movie. A player has to target the head of the Zombie in order to kill it, just like the movie.

You can play again and again to improve your score, a motivator in one way.  The ability to share on Facebook and Twitter gives the campaign the potential to go viral.

Mad over donuts go goa gone Zombie Keeler Scope for Improvement

The contest has worked towards promoting Mad Over Donuts but somehow the stars of Go Goa Gone emerge stronger than the special donut.  Everyone who participates is somehow looking for a chance to meet them right?  After all everyone can buy a donut but getting to meet the stars is quite another ball game.

Playing the game again and again while having the potential to motivate people to improve their scores could also classify as addictive.


All in all with the Zombie Keel-er campaign both “Mad Over Donuts” and ‘Go Goa Gone’ have forged a “cool” connection.  The campaign is in line with their strategy: to emerge as mad, whacky brands.
