“Samsung needed a strong marketing idea to launch the ST1000(CL65), a digital camera that can upload pictures directly to facebook and is really easy to use. The budget available? Less than 50,000 USD. We wanted to prove the easy handling to the Facebook users by giving the camera to Nonja, an orangutan in the national zoo to take and upload pictures. The world’s first ape on facebook became a world wide phenomenon. Over 80’000 fans joined her account in just six weeks. The international press cover age was worth over 7 Mill. USD.”
