Priceline is tapping into the power of the second screen with a social media campaign timed to coincide with Super Bowl this Sunday.
In an effort to promote the booking site’s Express Deals, Priceline is creating “express” versions of other brand’s Super Bowl commercials.
Priceline is planning to recreate the ads using puppets. It’s airing the new spots on the six-second video app Vine.
The campaign is meant to align with Priceline’s messaging of saving money and time.
The ad was allegedly banned for mentioning competitors Coke and Pepsi.

This is the first time that Priceline is using Vine for a social campaign. It is part of the company’s broader efforts to introduce real-time marketing.
The company sent out several well-received Tweets during the Grammy’s last week.
