New in 2005, each player would need to test their skills and football knowledge directly against ex-NFL great and legendary quarterback; Boomer Esiason. To win, each participant needed to “Beat Boomer” by having a higher weekly score the Mr. Esiason. By beating Boomer, participants where eligible to win great Logitech prize giveaways.

We are pleased that we were able to work with Logitech to penetrate a wide variety of marketing channels and successfully deliver strong results in terms of promotion awareness, game registrations, sales of Logitech’s Harmony Advanced Universal Remote and donations to the Boomer Esiason Foundation.”

The multi-faceted Logitech “Beat Boomer” campaign included event marketing programs, trade and consumer programs, regional television and print advertising, as well as radio and digital coverage.
