San Francisco gets a sweet visit from Candy Land

What better way to celebrate a 60 year anniversary and the re-launch of a 3D-version of the classic board game Candy Land than an alternative media campaign on the world-famous Lombard Street in San Francisco? Great find by the folks at Media Life Magazine.

The lucky kids who got the chance to play life-size Candy Land and hang out with the likes of Mr. Mint and King Kandy were chosen from San Francisco nonprofit Friends of the Children and University of California’s San Francisco Children’s Hospital.

The stunt got tons of attention from San Francisco tourists and was covered by numerous radio, TV, and newspapers outlets. It’s safe to say that everyone had fun and Candy Land’s maker Hasbro deserves a big kudos for this – pardon the pun – sweet campaign.
