Spotify in Grand Theft Auto

Campaign Title:
Grand Theft Audio

Descriptive Paragraph:
During the pandemic, people are no longer commuting to work, and instead they have taken their driving to Grand Theft Audio – hitting 140million copies sold in 2020. However our research shows players are already fed up with the in-game radio. So what if Spotify could bring Your Daily Drive, a playlist composed of tailored podcasts, news, and music into the game? Introducing Grand Theft Audio.
Now, players can switch on Your Daily-Drive whenever they hop in a virtual car. To get more users to turn on Spotify while driving their actual car, we’ll combine real driving data with GTA data to create a monthly wrapped featuring achievement badges that participants can share on social media. Grand Theft Audio has the ability to reach millions of drivers, whether it’s in their GTA Dinka or their Honda.

Synopsis: Over 76% of Americans drive alone to work every day. That’s 115 millions cars on the road and accounts for one-third of the country’s air pollution. People don’t like to carpool because sharing a car with a stranger can feel awkward. And the planet bears the brunt of that. So we thought – what better way to connect strangers than a shared love for music? We create a Google Maps integration on Spotify that uses pre-set ‘Home’ and ‘Work’ locations to identify drivers going along similar routes. We then compare their Daily Drive playlists and match them over common music preferences. Encouraging them to carpool, we not only get them to listen to Spotify in the car but also use music to help save the planet.

Americans love listening to the radio while driving. The task at hand is to make them switch to Spotify’s Daily Drive playlist which is a complete package including music, podcasts, and news. We realized radio glitches and bad frequencies make people switch off the radio instantly. We’ll take advantage of this insight by creating Spotify’s Trojan Radio Jammers. A Trojan Radio Jammer is a low power radio station made out of a transmitter, an antenna, and an audio source. So, we will take these jammers and jam the radio signals on some of the busiest streets in America. As it’s cheap and easy to make, we will place it in plain sight and drop hints to indicate it’s Spotify’s doing. Lastly, by using the old principles of radio, we will leave a direct radio message in favor of Spotify.
