Online, Emotionally-Charged, Social Engagement

Extra Sauce built the Battle of the Clubs. Facebook served as the hub for the battle. Fans voted for their favorite clubs and Smirnoff drinks both online and in the clubs (via RFID wristbands and tablets). Smirnoff threw a party for the winning club and it’s fans.
