Video starring Joseph debuts at Air Canada Centre and online April 7
TORONTO, April 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Cory Joseph, Toronto Raptor and LG G6 smartphone ambassador, is one of Canada's favourite ballers but what fans don't know is that his selfie game is almost as good as his basketball game. Joseph introduced this innovative new style of selfie, the "twofie," with the world premiere of a video on April 7 on the Videoboard during the final Toronto Raptors regular season home game.
Joseph, whose device of choice is the new LG G6, explains "the twofie is a thing you can only do if you have the same smartphone as I do. My smartphone's square camera mode lets me take full advantage of the multiple cameras by letting me photograph the scene in front of me and my reaction to it - at the same time! Essentially it's a double selfie. And it's awesome."
To add to the excitement at the game, co-branded LG G6 and Raptors t-shirts were tossed into the stands and four lucky fans who received a voucher with their t-shirt also won a new LG G6 smartphone.
The LG G6, which is now available across Canada, dominated with in-game presence across digital signage at Air Canada Centre and fans were able to experience twofies for themselves by showcasing their best game face with a fun pop-a-shot challenge in the concourse. In addition to digital support of the video on the web, out-of-home across downtown centres in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver and will help Joseph spread his twofie phenomenon.
