Simpsons Movie Marketing Campaign

simpsons movieThe 20th Century FOX is doing a great job at promoting its new Simpson's movie coming out in theaters next Friday, July 27.

kwik-e-mart 7-elevenAs part of a very creative marketing campaign, FOX partnered with convenience store chain 7-Eleven and turned a dozen stores into Kwik-E-Marts (the Simpsons' fictional convenience store run by Apu).

Moreover, FOX's official Simpsons' Movie website allows users not only to watch the movie trailer, or taking a virtual tour around Springfield, but also playing games online and even creating your own personalized Simpsons' avatar.

Moving to a new domain

Hi everyone!

I know it's been a while since the last time I posted on this blog but there is always a reasonable explanation for everything. As some of you probably already noticed, this blog has moved to a new domain: Determination.es

The reason is simply because I believe a new owned domain will provide a better experience, primarily for you, my loyal readers.

So now you know, I hope you continue to enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them. Don't forget to bookmark the new site and subscribe to the RSS feed!
