McDonald's: Ice Sculpture Stunt

June 06, 2012Filed under Outdoor and Food

McDonald’s Canada and Cossette in Vancouver have brought to life one of the first interactive ice sculptures this summer on behalf of McDonald’s Restaurants in Alberta, driving consumer interest in the company’s Dollar Drink Days campaign. Hosted in the town of Sylvan Lake, the stunt saw 8,000 pounds of ice moulded into a seven-foot tall installation, containing over 4,000 sparkling loonies, shaped into McDonald’s famous Golden Arches™. The ice melted on a summer Saturday, consumers chipped away at the sculpture to collect their ‘bounty.’ The sculpture was strategically placed near the Sylvan Lake Pier – an area frequented by young adults and families, and surrounded by recreational summer activities – in order to attract high levels of interaction. Supported by a ‘beach party’ – the day also featured a DJ, street promotional teams, hula hooping, limbo contests and giveaways.
