The U.S. Army's Virtual Reality Campaign Helps Prospects Get #InOurBoots

The U.S. Army's Virtual Reality Campaign Helps Prospects Get #InOurBoots
Recent studies show young Americans know little to nothing about the military, including the U.S. Army. Could it be because the only way to experience what it’s like to be a U.S. Army soldier is to walk in their boots through first-person storytelling?

The latest McCann Worldgroup recruiting effort for the U.S. Army is a high-energy and interactive virtual reality (VR) experience based off of real-world Army Missions. In this one-of-a-kind VR experience, users can discover fellow soldiers to engage with and go on missions to see, hear and feel what it is like to be a U.S. Army soldier by actually “stepping into their boots.”

By engaging in the immersive virtual reality of “In Our Boots,” prospective recruits have a chance to experience first-hand what it is like to be a U.S. Army sniper, drone operator, tank commander and bomb technician as they lead their teams behind enemy lines, neutralize threats and support Special Forces teams under fire.

The campaign’s first-person storytelling and 360-degree video series will be featured online as well via apps for iOS and Google Play. Spots will run on digital streaming platforms, social platforms, and local print and radio. The direct mail component to the campaign includes custom VR goggles that allow prospects to engage in a fully-immersive #InOurBoots experience.
