UK supermarket Asda has launched a virtual reality Halloween experience on its YouTube channel, and the video quickly became the second-most-watched video on the supermarket’s channel, with more than a million views in just a week.
The 360-degree video can be watched on a traditional screen, where viewers can scroll the video to look in any direction. Users can also watch the video in immersive virtual reality if they have a compatible headset.
The supermarket is giving away free Google Cardboard sets sets in five stores. Google Cardboard-compatible headsets are also available for order from dozens of manufacturers starting at under $10.
The video also includes TrueView cards – a new YouTube feature that shows product information and allows click-to-buy options.
