Optus on Federation Square

I saw a short article about this on television. Some guy proposed to his girlfriend on the large screen on Federation Square. All he had to do was send an SMS message.

Apparently, Optus has placed a message board on which scrolling messages can be displaced. This is near the 7-Eleven store, close to the corner of Flinders and Swanston Street. Each message cost 55 cents and messages should be sent to 19 767 333.

But for the major gimmick, try the Optus SMS Fed TV. This is the large television screen on Federation Square. One can create personalised messages with animation to be displayed on the big screen. I don’t know who or what decides on the type of animation but that was what the guy did when he proposed to his girlfriend. He sent an SMS to 041 33 33 021 and was charged the premium SMS charged of 55cents. Cheap?

Has anyone else tried it yet? Looking at the Fed Square website, it seems that this service is available on certain weekdays in May only from 12 to 2 pm.
