TRON Viral Marketing at hit at SDCC

There was a lot of Disney related news from San Diego Comic-Con yesterday. I hope to do a complete roundup tonight. But this was so cool, I didn’t want to let it pass.

The folks at Disney started the buzz for the Tron sequel at last year’s con. This year they’ve revealed the films name – Tron Legacy – and some great concept art. But the real hit seems to be this new viral ARG that led some folks on a very special adventure last night:

I’ve got to say – this could easily have been one of the greatest viral marketing stunts I’ve ever seen. You probably all heard about the joker scavenger hunt at Comic-Con a few years back – this definitely topped that one. We honestly didn’t know what was happening every step of the way and it was so exciting to be a part of this. I really did get chills when I noticed that the sign above the inconspicuous building we were standing outside was a giant “Flynn’s” sign. It’s this kind of stuff that makes this so incredibly awesome – they know what will make fans just go crazy and they really blew our minds this time. Bravo, Disney!
