An English Palace, Luxury Yacht and Mysterious House Set Stage for Once-In-a-Lifetime Opportunity Where Select Group of ‘Serious Watchers’ Will Get to Enjoy Their Favorite Shows on Critically-Acclaimed LG OLED 4K TV
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 16, 2018 – LG Electronics USA is giving serious TV watchers unique opportunities to watch the latest season of their favorite Netflix shows in show-themed settings. Through the LG ‘B&Binge’ contest, LG is recreating iconic locations from Arrested Development, The Crown and a surprise mystery show, and offering an unforgettable two-night stay within true-to-show atmospheres for selected winners. Each location will be outfitted with critically-acclaimed 2018 LG OLED 4K TVs providing winners with an unparalleled viewing experience.
The LG ‘B&Binge’ contest taps into a unique breed of TV watcher born in the streaming era, the “Serious Watcher,” and builds on the success of last year’s inaugural Serious Watchers campaign where LG gave fans an experience of a lifetime through surprise deliveries of LG OLED TVs by beloved Netflix Original series characters.
“TV today has become such an immersive experience. Viewers form deeply ingrained connections to the characters, settings and plots,” said Michelle Fernandez, head of home entertainment marketing, LG Electronics USA. “With this campaign, they’ll be able to see, hear and feel the same things their favorite characters encounter. Our goal is to celebrate this new form of viewership and offer Serious Watchers much more than just a front row seat by placing them in the center of the action.”
The LG ‘B&Binge’ settings and experiences will be outfitted with Easter eggs (hidden show references) and memorabilia to authentically bring each show to life for the most serious watchers.
Arrested Development: Live like a Bluth aboard a yacht inspired by the Lucille, the Bluth’s infamous yacht. Whereas Gob previously sunk the Lucille as part of one of his “illusions,” this yacht is above water and safely anchored at the Marina in Los Angeles. Never nudes welcome.
The Crown: Relive the royal drama from a palace in Yorkshire, England fit for a Queen or King. Royals know no needs and neither shall you; a butler will be there to attend to your needs. There will be royal garb fittings, royal etiquette boot camp, and afternoon tea shall be served promptly at 3 o’clock.
Binge: This final location will involve a full sensory experience and is not for the faint of heart. Located in the depths of New England, winners will leave questioning if only seeing is believing.
