‘Sausage Party’ activation has snags on the run in Sydney and Melbourne

A life-sized sausage is on the run in Sydney and Melbourne today as part of the ‘Where’s Weiner’ activation for the DVD release of Universal Sony animated film ‘Sausage Party’.wheres-weiner-

The animated R-rated film premiered in August and tells the story of Frank (voiced by Seth Rogen) a sausage trying to find out where he comes from.

The activation via Slingshot and Pedestrian.TV offers customers the chance to win $2000 if they can find the human version of ‘Frank the Sausage’. Frank will be appearing throughout both cities until he’s ‘caught’.

Bridget McKeon, senior product manager at Universal Sony, said: “I think the activation is an innovative concept that will allow us to target a hard-to-reach demographic with authentic content.”

As part of the activation, Pedestrian.TV will amplify the sausage hunt via native and social, and clues will be provided on Frank’s location through Snapchat.

The activation will be supported by editorial, video, display advertising and social.

The prize winner will not only have to find Frank but also repeat a quote from the film, which will be released on Snapchat. The activation offers additional prizes for the runners-up, including Sausage Party activity books and toys.

Frank will be on run from 12:30pm.
