META Brings Two New Worlds To Cannes

Just a thought — “Do you want to play a VR game?” = Boring, yesterday’s news, 🤓 “Do you want to explore the Metaverse as a Metanaut?” = Awesome, very cool 😎

META Brings Two New Worlds To Cannes

Every year the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity brings the creative communication industry together for learning, networking, and celebrating. This festival is META's first year returning after a two-year covid break. They brought a sneak peek into the Metaverse's future...well, actually, they brought two. 

MINIVerse is the Meta Creative Shop's first collaboration with an automotive group. The BMW Group brand, MINI, worked to reimagine go-karting in Meta Horizon Worlds. Players can customize their karts and race others on high-speed and high-flying tracks. 

The Fender Stratosphere Horizon World is a floating guitar-shaped island featuring the first of its kind co-play original music creation. The Meta Fender collaboration allows visitors to participate in a scavenger hunt for musical elements they can use to create interesting music with other visitors.  

Each collaboration shares a quality of inviting people to enjoy the brand's creativity with or without becoming traditional customers. An invitation to become something more than a consumer, but a collaborator in these company's early ventures into what the Metaverse can mean for brand relationships.
