The AR experience allows users to establish a greater connection to Chronic Cellars motto, ‘wines with character’ through a unique gamification.
“We were delighted to work with the Chronic Cellars’ team to create this memorable AR experience and bring Purple Paradise to life,” said Patrick Johnson, CEO of Rock Paper Reality, and agency behind the activation. “Purple’s illustrated design begged to jump out of the bottle and into the real world–so that’s what we did. The playful tongue-in-cheek nature of the Chronic Cellars brand provided the foundation of Purple’s performance, mannerisms, voice, and the over-under dice game challenge, and allowed Purple Paradise to be as engaging of a character as the wine he represents.”
Chronic Cellars of Paso Robles continues to provide unpretentious, delicious wines with a rebel spirit for all. The game is the brand’s most recent example of connecting with wine lovers through fun and approachable activation. Everyone is invited to try their luck with Purple Paradise.
