Short explanation

To promote the release of Just Dance 3, we wanted to prove that anyone can Just Dance. Our answer was Autodance, the app that makes anyone dance, regardless of talent. Simply record your friends moving and the app syncs their movements to a choice of dance tracks from the video game. Like magic, your friends will be shaking their stuff in a branded music video, which can be shared online.

Autodance is more than a fun app. It’s a fun tool to get people to make and share our ads for us. Each user-generated video acts as an advert for Just Dance 3, and features our tagline “Anyone can Just Dance”, along with an end card for the game.

With no media spend, Autodance exposed Just Dance 3 to a new audience of millions. And over Christmas 2011, Just Dance 3 became the best-selling video game in Europe.

Just Dance is the fun dance game series that anyone can pick up and play. But until now, the audience has been dominated by teenage girls. For the launch of Just Dance 3, our brief was to expand the audience to those who wouldn’t usually play dance games.
