Yahoo! has recognized the viral with its first "Big Idea Chair" award for excellence in studio interactive marketing. Yahoo!'s Vince Messina called the campaign "a perfect example of a cohesive effort that went beyond conventional methods to achieve exceptional results," in a statement. The award was given out last night at motion picture convention ShoWest.
