Facebook Campaign Plans To Marry Two Random Strangers

Filed as News on June 15, 2012 12:02 pm

Espalhe Guerilla Marketing wants to take two random Facebook users and have them tie the knot and they want to do it in celebration of a new ad campaign they are running for cough drop company Halls Brazil.

The marketing firm announced through the Halls Brazil Facebook page that they will work to select to random strangers who are willing to tie the knot.

Esphale was able to roll out the viral campaign to more than 3 million Facebook fan followers in which they say this new approach takes the idea of “online dating” to a  whole new level by merging it with new media advertising, social media and a once in a lifetime “giveaway.’

To participate users post their photo to the Facebook page and then choose a partner. Those “contestants” can then also choose their own bridal party.

Once contestants have been entered public voting will begin and the two “winners” will be flown to Las Vegas where they will get married in the famous Little White Chapel.

There is one catch, the wedding will only last five days, although perhaps if the right couple hits it off we’ll see children for them in the future.

Arranged marriages are common in many parts of the world, however it is not too often that we see them occur on Facebook with the help of millions of fans.

Facebook has been blamed for marrying countless marriages, perhaps it is finally time that Zuckerberg and his team give back to the marriage pool.

Would you leave your marriage decision in the hands of social media?
