"'A Good Day to Die Hard' is the perfect movie partnership for Big Red. Our consumers can relate to John McClane, a universally loved everyday hero. So we're thrilled to promote the film and offer one of our consumers the opportunity to be John McClane for a day," says Thomas Oh, Big Red, Inc. SVP of Marketing. "We've been working with the team at Fox, our bottlers, and selected retailers to create an exciting promotion for fans of both Big Red and the 'Die Hard' franchise."
During the promotion, Big Red and Big Red Zero 2 liter and 20oz bottles, and 12 packs will feature "A Good Day to Die Hard" and direct consumers to a custom microsite, http://www.Zero2AHero.com, where they can enter the Ultimate Die Hard Stunt Trip Adventure contest. One winner and a guest will travel to Las Vegas for two days of adrenaline-pumping experiences similar to John McClane's stunts in the "Die Hard" movies, including a stunt driving experience and nighttime helicopter ride. Starting this week, entrants will describe in a short essay why they should go from "Zero 2 A Hero" and win the trip. Five finalists will be selected to submit videos, and consumers will watch and vote for their favorite. The finalist with the most votes wins the stunt trip.
In addition to the Stunt Trip, starting in February, consumers will have the opportunity to win thousands of "Die Hard" related prizes at Zero2AHero.com. Winners can win movie tickets, the Die Hard 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Collection, and "A Good Day to Die Hard" movie posters.
