Metaverse campaign: what we’re talking about

Nowadays the metaverse is defined as an experiential, personal, and dynamic place in which converge virtual reality, augmented reality, the internet of things, and blockchain in order to provide an immersive experience.

In the metaverse, people from all over the world, through their avatars, can communicate with each other, attend to different activities like concerts and showrooms, play games and go shopping, among others.

What started in a first instance as a place for having fun, was then recognized as a great opportunity to do business. In 2021, the total value of the metaverse was calculated in more than $ 40 billion. And the main way to do trading in the metaverse is through a non-fungible token (NFT).

The NFT can be a unique digital representation of a real-world object, such as a bottle of water, an accessory, a sneaker, but also a tweet (sold by Jack Dorsey) or even a digital collection of NBA Top Shot. And its price may vary according to the market.

The Companies

Now let’s talk about some companies that so far have made a name in the metaverse.

In the beginning, the game Second Life was the first platform to be described as a metaverse since it combined social media, a three-dimensional world and an avatar. After this one, more games followed this trend of having these three aspects, such as Fortnite, Minecraft and World of Warcraft.

But the game changer was Roblox, a platform specialized in game creation founded in 2006. The company is nowadays considered the stepping-stone for many gaming worlds and is the responsible for creating Nikeland (Nike’s metaverse), Vans’ World (a skate game based on Vans clothing and skating style), Gucci garden (a Gucci exhibition regarding their 100th anniversary), and Pacworld (a mall-themed game).

In the other hand, Meta launched another game creation platform named Horizon Worlds, which host Wendy’s first restaurant in the metaverse and its world: the Wendyverse. According to its page (wendyverse.com) you can have 10 pc of nugget for free by downloading the Wendy’s App.

The Sand Box and Decentraland are others examples of companies that have dove in the metaverse. In their cases, they created their own worlds in which gamers can make genuine creations and sell them as NFT within these very worlds.

Alright, but how did these and another brands catch the attention in the metaverse?

This is a very interesting metaverse campaign. In 2021, Coca-Cola dove in the world of Non-Fungible Token by presenting a collection of four multi-sensory, friendship-inspired NFT that was presented in an online auction which fetched $ 575 thousand in only 72 hours. The money collected from it was detonated to charity. This brand auctioned on International Friendship Day.


To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Gucci placed in 2021 two simultaneous exhibitions: one was held at Florence, Italy; the other took place in a virtual garden accessible only via Roblox platform.

In order to steal the attention, this brand exploited a weakness from Durr Burger, an imaginary fast food restaurant created in Fortnite.

In this game there were two big food fighters: burgers (Durr Burger) vs. pizza (Pizza Pit). The customary was that players from one restaurant fought against the other. But watching that Durr Burger kept its beef in freezers, Wendy decided to design and drop into FortNite a representation of its iconic doll. And instead of killing other players, it destroyed all Durr Burger’s freezers to resemble its “fresh, never frozen beef”. The game play was watched on Twitch and the mention of the brand was increased in 119% on social media.
