Campaign Live: Burberry sponsors first Snapchat Lens for ‘steamy’ My Burberry Black launch

The Lens will appear on Snapchat for 24 hours from 23 August. A user taking a selfie and opening Burberry’s Lens will see themselves beneath an umbrella. If they blow a kiss while on camera, this will trigger a golden light filtering effect. The Lens will run in the UK, US, France, Italy and Germany.

Burberry is driving users to its new Lens through Instagram, where it has simply posted a picture of Snapchat’s logo. Clicking on the link in Burberry’s Instagram bio pushes users to Snapchat, where they will find the new Lens.

Ad Week: These Charities Made a Facebook Messenger Bot to Draw Awareness to Ethiopia’s Water Crisis

Since launching Facebook Messenger bots earlier this year, brands like Trolli and American Express have built chatbots as a new way to interact with consumers. Now jewelry brand Lokai and nonprofit Charity: Water are using bots to raise awareness and visualize the challenges people in rural areas of the world face in getting clean drinking water.

The two companies and AKQA have teamed up to create a bot dubbed ‘Walk with Yeshi’ that takes Facebook users through a two-and-a-half-hour experience with a woman named Yeshi who lives in rural Ethiopia and spends two-and-a-half hours each day walking to find water.
