IMG LIVE worked with Kia and Uber to offer free rides around New Orleans during All-Star week. NBA players picked up surprised fans to play a variety of games and chat with passengers as they drove around New Orleans.
Kia wanted to provide NBA All-Star fans with an unforgettable experience in a Kia Sorento or Kia Optima. The purpose of the activation was to build brand memorability and awareness through the element of surprise.
