Take A Number Sports Sammy created Take A Number Sports, an innova3ve new experien3al promo3on model centered squarely on fan sa3sfac3on and reten3on. Using the powerful emo3on of being a part of the sports environment – fans can par3cipate in the game by following an individual winning number. It works as an alterna3ve to fantasy sports for the casual fan who likes the game for the social experience instead of the hard-‐core sta3s3cs. It makes watching sports more interes3ng and builds a network of valued connec3ons between fans aligned around a number, connected to a team, and also to each other. Take A Number Sports features simple game mechanics that anyone (young or old) can easily understand to engage groups of fans around the social experience of a big game event. 9

When launching a “green” ini3a3ve, Sammy created a unique consumer experience that only a music-‐centric brand could deliver. By focusing on backstage “Green Rooms” from some the most legendary local music venues in Los Angeles, and going inside ar3st and band buses converted for bio fuels and more, a hired environmental expert was able to take a tour that was captured on video to recommend changes that could be made to help the environment. The listener was able to see inside and also gain prac3cal 3ps on how they could help too. 12
Mixed Media Discovery Wall Synched with the live audio feed, users could discover everything they want to know about over 1,000 ar3sts at a single source. A new experience started in each moment a new song was played on the radio and through online audio streaming. 13
Highway Texting CampaignA campaign to encourage the federal and state government to update highway rest stops across the U.S. into mobile messaging centers, or "text stops." Sammy’s goal is to bring together a coali3on of partners to help evolve the areas into more than a place to just stretch your legs and take a bathroom break.By designing and implemen3ng eﬀec3ve updates, and crea3ng social currency around the experience of using these areas, the "rest stop" can evolve into a mobile messaging center that will make a diﬀerence in saving lives. 14

Rare Nerve The Rare Nerve tour combines music and ac3on sports to create a whole new experien3al culture. Example: Shaun White and Linkin Park perform together. The event features the ramps, jumps and stunts that have been scorned by most, but now the best come together to aiempt them and the one who master them will win $1,000,000! Ideas • A famous band/ar3st is combined with a Rare Nerve biker, cyclist or skater to perform a rou3ne where music and the stunt are combined for an amazing set.. • The stage could actually feature ramps and while the ar3st/band is performing, the Rare Nerve athlete is performing too. • It opens the band/ar3st to a whole new audience to buy their music. • The Rare Nerve village/event features taioo ar3sts, piercing ar3sts, illusionists like Chris Angel (which have a Rare Nerve vibe), merchandise, equipment, gaming, meet and greets and more. 16
