Advertising of the Future? Giant QR Code Lights Up Sky in Shanghai

Hundreds of drones were launched in Shanghai on Saturday night and lit up the sky with a massive QR code.

QR codes are used for almost everything in China, including permission to travel during the pandemic, but this QR code was special. It was a massive advertisement campaign run by a Chinese video-streaming company called Bilibili on the first anniversary of the Chinese release of the wildly popular role-playing game Princess Connect!

The floating QR code that lit up the night sky in Shanghai’s Bund district was created by 1,500 illuminated drones that linked to a homepage set up by Bilibili.

Is this the future for China’s advertising?

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
