Photo-storage and sharing site KodakGallery.com and digital-marketing firm EVB understand that there's a quasi-superhero side to all of us, or so we'd like to believe as we constantly attempt to cram more pursuits into a single day--a nearly universal pursuit to which many can relate.
That common experience helped the companies turn their campaign, based on OfficeMax's "Elf Yourself," into a viral-video marvel of its own. KodakGallery.com enabled users to upload their pictures and transform themselves, or family members and friends, into humorously depicted superheroes of everyday life.
Close to two million unique users took up the offer, and more than half went on to share the resulting videos with others, generating a surge in traffic and sales on KodakGallery.com.
