Valentine’s Day is about chocolates and flowers… Yeah right. Not this year. Tuks FM in association with Zombie Run SA organised a thrilling night where you and your partner had to run for your lives. The “My Bloody Valentine Zombie Run” was hosted by the National Zoological Gardens (NZG) in Pretoria on 14 February 2014.

The race followed a light obstacle course, which was super-creepy, in the dark and deserted Pretoria zoo. Participants could either enter as a runner or a zombie. The zombies took in their positions throughout the zoo in order to grab as many flags from runners passing by.

The organisers of the event expected       7 000 people to attend the festival. However, after an additional week of advertising on Tuks FM, 12 500 people attended the Colour Me Crazy fest.

Samsung in conjunction with Tuks FM hosted a campus product activation at the University of Pretoria Hatfield campus from 12 to 15 March 2013.
The activation, with a supporting Tuks FM on-air campaign, provided students with the opportunity to interact with the brand and their products at the Samsung Galaxy Studio stand.

“A lot of foot traffic and a jam-packed Galaxy Studio stand left the Samsung exhibitors smiling,” says Ryan Brunyee, Senior Sales Executive of Tuks FM. “It is definitely more beneficial when we drive a strong message on-air to get UP students down to the stand to share the real Samsung experience, they also had an opportunity to win some awesome prizes, which is always a great incentive to interact at the stand,” he adds.

Students visited the stand, where they could chat to Samsung exhibitors about the brand and view the latest gadgets. Students also had their picture taken with a Samsung Galaxy Camera which was placed on a free badge adding a fun aspect to the experience. Other freebies included caps and steel flasks. A sketch artist and magician also made an appearance which kept the stand buzzing.

“The stand looks really cool and I enjoyed chatting to the guys about their latest products and gadgets,” Law student, Nonto Ntombela explains. “I already have a Galaxy S3 but I enjoyed checking out the new Galaxy Note. Obviously we also enjoyed taking photos and receiving freebies,” she smiles.
