Another Random Act of Cricket: Virtual Family Message Turns Real-Life Reunion

With the help of our friends at Alcatel, we gave three people living in Provo, UT a surprise real-life reunion with family living far away, even internationally. The families had not seen each other in quite some time, so it was quite the heartfelt occasion!

 

Our participants were invited to a local Cricket Wireless store to check out the Alcatel IDOL 4 + VR goggles experience. While wearing the goggles and experiencing the splendor of virtual reality, a loved one pops up in the viewer with a special message. The tears of joy begin to appear with amazement, and before you know it the family (who have been waiting patiently in a tent just yards away) pop into the store for real to receive and give hugs all around.

 

It was all so unreal, and then it wasn’t. It was a truly delightful event. These families have something to smile about this season. Watch the video below yourself and shoot us a note on Twitter about what you have to smile about this holiday season. And don’t forget to tag it with #STSA!
