Crackopenafriendly.com - no longer live

Conceived as the campaign hub for Foster’s new advertising campaign, crackopenaafriendly.com was a fully featured beer site designed to appeal to Foster’s new target age group of 21 to 29 year olds.

The website featured:

The web films, with each film depicting a decidedly unfriendly situation that’s averted by the arrival of a can of Foster's.

A friendly map of the US with user feedback that created a realtime scoreboard of the friendlest state in the union.
