CAMPAIGN

We modified a Google Pixelbook (selected to maximise cross-promotion with Alphabet brands) to operate in the harsh environment of space. We launched the laptop alongside a 360° camera, creating an immersive VR video experience that highlighted YouTube’s recently introduced support for 360° content.

Heads-up display-style CG infographics and Easter eggs were added in post-production, matching the designs used in the world of the show for maximum relevance. The entire launch process was documented as extending legacy content to build anticipation for the show.
