Online PR News – 21-March-2011 – – New Delhi, March 21, 2011: PlayUp, global leader in live and interactive social mobile gaming, has launched India’s largest and unique campaign to cheer for Team India called Scream for Team India.

PlayUp is all set to take the cricket excitement in India to the next level as the campaign will actively engage cricket aficionados, who by showing their support for the national cricket team, can get to be a part of a record setting event, which aims to enter the Limca Book of Records.
The Scream for Team India campaign looks to set the record with the most number of screams by a nation in support of team India at the ICC World Cup 2011. It will run on three platforms (online and offline), with a toll-free number to call and register your scream, a micro-site and an outdoor activity where vans will be deployed across major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and many more. Entries can be made at each platform. The campaign will register every entry in order to account for the world record. The campaign activity period is of 45 days, at the end of which, data will be made available for audit. In just 10 days of the launch of the campaign on February 19, 2011, 5000 screams and 3000 videos were recorded.
