Future Ad Labs has signed up Heinz and Reckitt Benckiser as launch partners for its new product, PlayCaptcha. PlayCaptcha is an interactive ad format which is designed to increase brand engagement and improve overall consumer sentiment and product recall. It is designed to gamify CAPTCHAs.

The PlayCaptcha for Heinz invites visitors to pour a virtual bottle of salad cream onto a sandwich, instead of being forced to decipher hard to read text. For Reckitt Benckiser, the team has developed a PlayCaptcha that persuades visitors to clean a virtual dirty penny by dragging it into a bowl of Cillit Bang.

Lady Gaga, who is renowned for her social media savvy and massive following, will ask her over 40 million “Little Monsters” on Twitter and 59 million fans on Facebook to tweet and post about the upcoming album. Fans’ tweets will be incorporated into the background of these digital adverts.

The singer is also using outdoor media to perform a “digital tease” of the album cover, which was designed by Jeff Koons, with a new portion of the album revealed every few minutes. Clear Channel says it is the first-ever out-of-home campaign that sequences a stepped reveal of advertiser creative in unison across the world.
