How we created a commercial for Rovio optimized for testing

With some of the world’s most recognizable IP, Rovio wanted a fresh approach to promote Angry Birds 2, the new arcade mobile game in the billion-dollar franchise. In a departure from cartoon cardinals and canaries, Rovio wanted a live-action ad with real actors to highlight the universal appeal of the game across every demographic and device. Through our agile production process, we efficiently captured hundreds of video and photo assets in one shoot.

To understand user motivations and the competitive landscape, we incorporated intensive research from our creative learning agenda. Beyond an entertaining ad, our agile production approach provided Rovio with multiple variations to test, including different character reactions, different narrative progression, and different gameplay. The ad is optimized for multiple platforms and for iterative testing, allowing Rovio to sustain profitable ad spend. Watch the Angry Birds 2 commercial to see our agile creative capabilities in action.

Consumer Acquisition has partnered with Rovio since 2019 to generate original story-driven ads for Angry Birds Dream Blast, Small Town Murders, and Sugar Blast. Today, we’re providing thumb-stopping creative for their RPG, Darkfire Heroes.
