Carls JR And Hardees Announce Call Of Duty Veterans Event
Did you know that after months of serious anticipation, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III is available nationwide today, 11/6?! Gamers rejoice!
That said, wanted to remind you about Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s newest partnership with with the game, marking the popular fast food chain’s biggest promotional tie-in and Call of Duty’s first ever in-game integration with a quick-service restaurant (QSR) brand. The dynamic program features unique in-restaurant and in-game integrations (including the “Take Out” personalization pack that features a specialized weapon camo decked out with a ketchup, mustard, and extra pickles themed design!), an “Ultimate Care Package” combo meal complete with a peel-and-win game piece sweepstakes, a Veterans Day fundraising campaign, and a Call of Duty inspired new ad campaign, titled “Best Day Ever,” featuring the return of Charlotte McKinney. The $1M ad premiered nationally on October 26 and has already received over 800K views on YouTube and over 350 million earned media impressions.

In an effort to further support this partnership, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s philanthropic program for military veterans and their families, Stars for Heroes™, will be conducting an activation of goodwill on Veterans Day, November 11, 2015. On that day, all proceeds from the sales of any “Ultimate Care Package” will go directly to the Call of Duty Endowment (“CODE”), a non-profit created by Activision Blizzard that has funded the placement of over 15,000 veterans into high quality jobs. With similar visions, both organizations will, together, help further benefit our nation’s military heroes and their families
