Get your hands— or thumbs— in on the Tour de France action.
Starting today, your thumbs can race the same 3,664 km course as real-life cyclists. “Your thumbs are your thighs” in the interactive app Thumbs of Glory. Players compete the real-life course during the same 21-day period to win a Specialized S-Works Tarmac, (a bike), or to win individual stages for other, smaller prizes.
It’s a fun way to get people excited, and inspired about the actual race. Though the app inventors aren’t sure anyone will actually finish the race, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners San Francisco have a cute idea to get people talking.
Give the agency of record four broccoli sandwiches. It’s a big idea and may get Specialized the spotlight it needs.
