The stunt started by building hype. We delivered baked ziti to micro-influencers throughout New York City, defined Italian-American slang on social media and shared posts highlighting iconic lead Tony Soprano. Once hyped, our Content division delivered the Twitter stunt—@HBO sending its followers custom, Sopranos-inspired mob nicknames.
