The opportunity

Disney+ (@DisneyPlusUK) and O2 (@O2) successfully launched their partnership on Twitter with offer-focused Website Cards, targeting old and new O2 customers with sign-up deals for Disney+. But they wanted to take it further.

The strategy

Seeing an opportunity to secure a second wave of subscribers, O2 identified the Twitter threadventure as the ideal format to celebrate the variety of Disney+ content on offer. 

Disney+ and @O2 worked with its creative agency VCCP (@VCCP) to create two versions of the threadventure format, which was the perfect creative medium to showcase what is on offer on Disney+ through a series of Tweets.

@O2’s media agency Havas (@HavasMediaUK) combined efforts with conversational AI business Proxima (@Proxima_io) to target a wide-ranging audience, in order to show off the breadth of Disney content available.

Families or parents between the ages of 35 and 54, as well as adults between 18 and 35 — with a slight female skew — were sent on a Disney interactive adventure on Twitter, leading them to their ultimate movie for their next night in. 

Jim Capp, creative director at VCCP, said: “With so much great content on the platform it’s hard to choose what to watch first, but O2’s threadventure makes it both easy and entertaining.”
