Bradley Cooper stars in first interactive life action Google Spotlight Story from IWC
 

For their new international campaign, the Swiss luxury watch brand IWC Schaffhausen casts Bradley Cooper in the first-ever interactive VR experience starring an A-list celebrity. The idea was a collaborative effort developed and implemented by Google and Scholz & Friends.

In the VR experience ‘The Road Less Traveled’, viewers not only accompany the multi-Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper on the road, but also get to determine the plot of the story with VR glasses using head and eye movements to create their own unique experience.

The 360° road trip starts in a loft in downtown L.A. before travelling deep into California’s Mojave desert to a secret place. Alongside Bradley Cooper, the Big Pilot’s watch from IWC Schaffhausen also has a leading role in the story, serving as a trusted companion along the way.

Robert Krause, Managing Director at Scholz & Friends Berlin explains: “With this project, we ourselves felt like we were on ‘The Road Less Traveled’. For the Google team at Mountain View, it was also new and uncharted territory.”

‘The Road Less Traveled’ for Google Spotlight Stories is part of an integrated international campaign conceptualised by Scholz & Friends in cooperation with the IWC Creative Center. The Google Spotlight Stories app is available for free download for Android and iOS.
