Soma Ghosh, Vice President - Marketing, Castrol India said, “The Google Lightbox technology is an important part of our digital strategy during the ‘Castrol Activ Cling on to Football’ campaign.  It will enable us to deliver the most fan-friendly exciting football experience. This technology will take the hangout directly to fans, rather than have the fans go and view the hangout.” 

The Lightbox technology will LIVE stream the ‘Castrol Activ Cling on to Football’ talk show on Google+ Hangouts and across Google Display Networks. Users browsing numerous websites can watch these sporting experts in real-time on a ‘king-size canvas’ by simply rolling their mouse over on a ‘Castrol Activ Cling on to Football’ banner.
