-Fast food restaurant Krystal, in partnership with its AOR Dagger, is launching Crave TV for today’s “high” holy holiday of 4/20. Dagger’s creative team decided to make a whole 4/20 TV station, a 4 minute and 20 second long social video made up of smaller, more snackable videos stitched together and made to look like old-fashioned linear TV. It features absurdist comedy to video game clips, food and pop culture and other odds and ends. It all focuses on the brand’s 4/20 deal, which is $4 off any order of $20 or more. The full version will “air” across Krystal’s owned social channels today.
