OVERVIEW

Paramount & Mean Girls Broadway were looking for a unique way to engage fans, raise awareness and celebrate both the 15th anniversary of the cultural phenomenon Mean Girls movie release, as well as the hit Broadway musical.

October 3 is internet famous and for Mean Girls fans a holiday in its own right. The goal was to capitalize on the annual holiday by bringing Facebook audiences, movie and musical fans together across the country with a live experience that captured the spirit of the brand, celebrate and rewarded them for their many years of love & support.

HOW IT WORKED

The solution seemed simple, through a Facebook Live Stream, allow fans to engage with the movie like never before. We brought the original writer of both the Movie and Musical, the queen bee herself; Tina Fey (and Mean Girls super fan, Busy Philipps), to host the ultimate live viewing party via real-time comments to air, all while spending time with a group of fans that adore the film. Oh, and let’s not forget the fabulous prizes!
