Quite recently, Russia hosted the World Cup 2018 Famous Russian and international companies did not stay away from this bright event. Consider some examples of situational marketing used by brands during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
We simulate pain for juicy chicken.
In the video, a football player encounters an opposing player. He then falls and starts vigorously rolling around the field, pretending to be in pain. A stretcher arrives behind the football player, but he continues to be in pain. He does not stop rolling and in the view of the cameras leaves the field.
After he is removed from the field, he goes into one of the KFC fast food restaurants, where he orders food for himself. Then he goes out walking normally, and he offers to treat the television group that followed him close on his heels.
However, it is better to see than to hear:
The Burger King company announced an action in support of the Russian team. To guess the score you need sauces: in the mobile application Burger King you need to add as many sauces to the order as the participant expects to see goals scored against Croatia. Anyone who guesses will pay a nominal fee of 1 ruble, and will also take part in drawing 5000 Burger King bonus points (1 point = 1 ruble).
