FarmVille Live event in Northern CA mall 'a bust'
This event attracted a crowd of bewildered onlookers and squealing children (see video). One fan in attendance -- who calls it 'a bust' -- says there were no big giveaways -- just a line of people waiting to be interviewed about the game. Another person who waited in line was rewarded with the gift that keeps on giving -- a Zynga sticky notepad.
We're all for creative attention-getting schemes, but not sure if handing out notepads and herding chickens on AstroTurf is the ticket. For the next live mall promotion, we'd be happy to help Zynga brainstorm some new ideas -- we're thinking something with flash mobs and chicken suits.
