download (3)Channel 4, in partnership with VisitScotland, today announces a unique interactive TV campaign that invites viewers to take part in and direct a series of ads across a week.


Launching on E4 on Monday 11th September at 10.15pm, the 60 second spots will be broadcast at the same time from Monday to Friday, during matchmaking show Celebs Go Dating.


A cast of six young travellers will experience a range of exciting activities across Scotland every day of the campaign. Each ad will illustrate the past 24 hours of the travellers’ escapades before offering viewers the chance to vote via Twitter for the activity they will undertake the following day, using bespoke hashtags linked to #ScotE4.


The Twitter poll will remain live for half an hour after the ad has aired, votes will be counted and the production crew will transition to the next location, ready to film the following day’s spot.


In a first of its kind, a casting ad offering viewers the chance to be a part of the six cast members has just launchedon E4.


The partnership was brokered by Jack Bridgewater, Partnership Account Manager in 4 Sales’ Manchester office. The Chase Films are producing the creative.


The exclusive campaign comes ahead of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 and supports VisitScotland’s desire to position Scotland as an inspirational destination for millennials. As one of the largest generations in history, millennials – those aged between 16-35 years old – represents a lucrative market for the global tourism industry.


With its breath-taking landscapes, thrilling outdoor experiences and rich and diverse culture, Scotland possesses many of the attributes that traditionally appeal to this younger market. VisitScotland is also working with TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website,to capitalise on interest generating by the project by making it quick and easy for viewers to book their own Scottish experience via the TripAdvisor website.


Jane Hector-Jones, Group Partnerships Manager, 4Sales said: “We are delighted to be working with VisitScotland to deliver this exciting and innovative first. E4’s key demographic of 16-34 year olds aligns perfectly with VisitScotland’s millennial target market for this unique campaign that will showcase the charms of beautiful Scotland whilst entertaining and engaging viewers.”


Fiona Holmes VisitScotland Assistant Marketing Manager said“Scotland is an exciting, contemporary destination, much more than haggis, tartan and Nessie, and that’s exactly what we hope to show in this exciting campaign. We want to challenge viewers’ preconceptions and show them that Scotland is the ultimate playground for the young and adventurous. As a millennial myself, I was keen to help create an action-packed itinerary filled with everything from mountain biking and music to sea-kayaking and sled dog safaris. I’m sure E4 viewers will be surprised at the huge range of activities you can do here and we hope they’ll be inspired to come and experience all Scotland has to offer themselves.”
