Thunderbirds to brand browsers

United International Pictures (UIP) is to promote its Thunderbirds film with a pioneering online campaign that will place advertising on internet users' browsers.

Ooqa Ooqa can be used in the same way as a normal browser, while delivering movie information.

The campaign, developed by digital agency Outrider, is the first stage of a deal between Ooqa Ooqa's developers, United Virtualities, and UIP that will see a minimum of 10 movies promoted across Europe, Asia Pacific and South America.

Thunderbirds, which is a live-action version of the cult 60s TV show, opens this week.

UIP ran an online campaign promoting Shrek 2 earlier this month.
