SImplest idea is to have a periscope coming out of various places and peeking in on what is happening with the players and their equipment. The obvious ones are out of the hole and out of the bag, but you could push the envelope a bit too. Have the periscope come up behind people in conversation, slip around corners, under stalls and etc.

More like a commercial than viral though.

 

You could always go for the flash mob approach with people dressed like the MGS avatar. Sort of a where's waldo meets looking for bigfoot. "Did you see the plans for the new G20 driver?" Then show the PING corporate offices with the MGS spy slipping around the corner. Could catch him leafing through scotty's design book, or something like that. You could have it be like the end of the Thomas Crown Affair with lots of folk in trench coats showing up on the course as the corporate security or marshals show up to catch the spy. The spy could be tracking the latest and greatest item that week, varying between looking for putters, and etc.

 

If it catches on, you could probably get some of the manufactures to "leak" some glimpses of new gear when the spy acquires it from their offices.

You want it to really go Viral? Let's think what would sweep it across the net, comedy and sex appeal.

 

A blond, well endowed, in a brown trench coast and hat, all covered up, glasses on. Lets say in this one, she is trying to get a glimpse of AK's new proto irons. His people are not letting anyone get close, no people can sneak in for a spy pic. Along comes our Golf Spy Girl who asks to get a picture of the irons and AK, he refuses her at first, she then drops the trench coat, flings her long blond hair out of the hat, and is dressed in a brown My Golf Spy Bikini. AK, quickly lets her in, and poses with her and the irons.

 

At the end, she say's " At My Golf Spy, we also get our man, and their equipment!"

 

 

WINNER!!!

 

PS, using Tiger Woods was way too easy!

Have a stalkerazi snapping telephoto pics of a Tiger look-alike from long range. Then have a view through the lens of the camera showing the pictures being taken of his clubs and not him. Then splash the mygolfspy logo and say that at MGS we always get our story. You can substitute any golfer you choose since Tiger has dominated the headlines, but it would be fitting to have it focused on him with the paparazzi chasing him lately. That'd make it more about the equipment than the person, which is what MGS is all about anyway. And since there is already a TW impersonator out there he'd be easy to find via his site.

If you go this way, the dialogue has to include the like "Nice shaft AK. Is it extra stiff?"

Seems like the other way to have something truly go viral is via song. Peanut butter jelly time, pants on the ground, & etc.

 

Maybe we need some musical thing with the "spy" sneaking up on people singing "What choo playin'?"

Sort of like the MC Hammer 2 Legit 2 Quit video with all of the sports cameos.

 

Would be great with some pros, but you could spy on normal people on the course. Film at various courses, surprising the normal people.

 

Tiger Woods, What choo playin' ? What choo playin' ?

 

Aunt Sally, What choo playin' ? What choo playin' ?

 

Dude in the middle of your back swing, What choo playin' ? What choo playin' ?

 

Could modify the song to spy on the manufacturers,

Scotty Cameron, What choo makin' ?

 

Simple, infectious hook is the key. Make it funny and just bury "What choo playin' ?, What choo playin' ?" into the viewers brain.

So you have a tour pro hitting balls on a range with a new prototype driver and letting the R&D guy on the range with him know what he likes and doesn't like about the new driver. In the background however you have a MGS geek with a camera or a blackberry, whatever snapping pics of the club.

 

Then you cut to a basement where one of the MGS bloggers (who probably lives with his parents) is posting the pics on the MGS forum. They guys hits the send button and you follow the transmission through cyber space (flashing lights, computer wire, the whole bit. A little like a scene from the movie Hackers if you know what I mean) As people all over the world are checking out the pics of this new driver the scene cuts to the head of new club development for the company and he gets an email of the pics of the new driver that even he hasn't seen yet.

 

After he looks at the pictures in disbelief he takes a deep swallow and the work F*$k comes out of his mouth (but is bleeped out of course) Then you cut to the end of the commercial that has mygolfspy.com "Tomorrows Golf Equipment....Today" with the spy logo and the whole bit.

you should show a guy walking around an OEM test center with that company's polo shirt on and have him walking down halls grabbing stuff. then you see him go to his car in the parking lot and toss the prototype equipment in the back seat. he then opens the trunk and tosses the company's polo shirt back in the pile and then puts on another company's shirt and drives away to the next test center.

then he says like off to the oven! or off to the kingdom! ....and it fades to the slogan.

I do too, gonna work on another, but I am sure it will have some hot girl in barely nothing trying to get pictures of equipment.

 

Use the one I did before, and make her Asian this time, that's a twist and a winner!@

rather at the end instead of speaking, he should just put a mark on his checklist of companies! give 'em the silent treatment!

11 more days on this contest. Hopefully we can get a ton of more entries.

 

We hope to turn this concept into both a viral video and also possibly a TV Commercial.

 

We love some of the concepts but we need some more ideas.

 

So put your thinking caps on and see what you guys can come up with :lol:
