The festival & the Nothing But NETspend basketball was a grown-up kid’s dream come true replete with moments like Shaq welcoming longtime friend Snoop Dogg and Takis chips falling from the ceiling during DJ Diesel’s set. For fans at home, Netspend and Papa Johns partnered with Shaq to bring consumers nationwide a Big Game Weekend experience of their own using AR technology.
Shaq invited fans via Instagram to participate in an interactive and first-of-its-kind AR experience with technology partner VideoBomb. Consumers scanned their phone over a real-life one-dollar bill and the first 5,000 to participate got to redeem a ten-dollar Papa Johns eGift Card courtesy of Netspend; while Takis live-streamed DJ Diesel’s set.
Shaq undoubtedly was proud of his fun but charitable event saying, “this has to be one of the best Super Bowl kickoffs…”
