WHAT: Fandom, the world’s largest fan platform, and “The Real Cost” have created a larger

than life experiential activation that will debut in San Diego during the biggest fan convention of the year. Inspired by classic Kaiju movies including Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster, Fandom developed the “Attack of the Metallic Menace,” a ten foot metal monster created to drive awareness around the dangers of youth vaping. Placed in front of a large themed backdrop that resembles a set of lungs, “Attack of the Metallic Menace” provides attendees the opportunity to learn about the dangers of vaping. Attendees can also take part in multiple augmented reality experiences that bring the monster to life. Those tuning into the weekend’s activities from home can also engage with the “Metallic Monster” through engaging influencer content.
