Earlier this year, Google kicked off a collaboration with Childish Gambino to help promote the Pixel 3. Now, that’s being taken a step further with a new experience at Coachella which will highlight the Pixel 3’s Night Sight capabilities.
Nomad case for Pixel 3
Google’s previous work with Childish Gambino spawned what I think is probably the best video ad for the Pixel 3 to date. The short advert took a snippet from the still unreleased track, “Human Sacrifice” and showed the rapper in a dance-off with his own Playmoji.
At Coachella, Childish Gambino will be at the festival hosting the “Brighter in the Dark” experience with Google’s help. The experience will use Google’s Pixel 3 to let users have a dance-off with the Childish Gambino Playmoji pack, as well as use music, art, and technology in “unexpected ways.”
Of course, as implied by the title, Night Sight is going to be a huge focus at this experience. It’s described that the installation is “designed exclusively” for the Pixel 3’s Night Sight feature, letting users capture “jaw-dropping photos” in the dark.
