Examples abound: Wieden & Kennedy's Old Spice campaign with its use of online video, TV spots, and social media; the use of games and live events for The Dark Knight; and the sprawling epic that was BMW's The Hire. Weiler himself IDed other tools in the transmedia arsenal: geolocation and the improving technology of near field communications or NFC.

In this case, the 'acquisition' is based on how many customers fill out a form after being directed to a mobile site via the QR code.
