Our Role

Content + StrategyLivestreamingVirtual Events

For two consecutive years, STN Digital partnered with the NFL to create a unique TikTok LIVE production in order to build excitement for the NFL’s Super Bowl 2022 and 2023. 

Following the successful partnership of the 2022 Super Bowl TikTok Tailgate, which led up to a pregame concert with the Chainsmokers, the NFL approached STN to produce another LIVE show in 2023. This time, the show showcased performances by Jason Derulo and The Black Keys!

Thank you so much for all the incredible work that went into bringing SBLVIII TikTok Tailgate to life. Your team is consistently amazing to work with and we absolutely could not continue to uplevel this show year after year without you all.

How we utilized a TikTok Livestream for the tailgate

To enhance the tailgate experience in the second year, the STN team created an exceptional 20-minute livestream like no other. We leveraged our creative team to develop custom motion graphics, originally produced content and a complete edit of the run of the show. 

STN Digital’s production team kicked off the TikTok Tailgate with a rapid start, ideating on original concepts to pitch to the client, creating a run of show, scheduling cast and crew for the on-site shoot, and working closely with TikTok artists to bring their original ideas to life.

In 2022, our team worked directly with top talent @Tinx, boasting over 1.5M followers on TikTok, to capture and edit segments for the livestream. These included Tinx’s ranking of the most popular Super Bowl foods and the most “dateable” team mascots. STN also worked with notable talent for the livestream including Josh Richards, AngryReactions, Emily Zugay, Alejandra Tapia, Noodle the Pug, and King Bach.

In 2023, STN worked closely with top talent @allisonkuch and Las Vegas Raiders’ defensive end @issacrochell to capture and edit clips during the event. Our team also worked with prominent personalities including Liza Koshy, Josh Richards, Carla Rockmore, Makayla London, Emmanuel Duverneau, Harry Mack, and more for the highly anticipated livestream.
