In Fall 2011 Nike launched the Vapor Flash Jacket in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. A running jacket that is unique, because it fully reflects. Every runner wearing it is safer, since the Nike Vapor Flash Jacket makes him visible in the dark.
Our idea: “Catch the Flash” – the first chase that makes the invisible visible. On the dark streets of Vienna and at the same time online.
Starting: 50 Nike Runners wearing Vapor Flash Jackets. The Flashrunners. The whole of Vienna was chasing them in the streets. Because those flashing most of the Flashrunners with their cameras and thereby revealing their jacket numbers won a 10,000 euro platinum bar. Simultaneously, the rest of the world took part on our microsite. Since all 50 Flashrunners transferred their GPS data to the “Catch the Flash Online Game” in real time by using an app.
