Digital advertising agency R/GA is heading MasterCard‘s newest “Priceless” campaign, which involves placing seats from the old Yankee Stadium in 20 popular locations across New York City. Each blue seat has a QR code that leads people to “Check in to the ballgame” on Facebook Places. On offer are two VIP tickets to watch a game at Yankee Stadium.

The ad was directed by Oscar-winning The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper and can be viewed below:
