For the launch of its online boutique, Lacoste, along with BETC and BETC Digital, asked Vine and Instagram star Zach King (@finalcutking) to help out.

Zach King (@finalcutking) is an American and film major began creating videos as a pastime. Hailed as a genuine star on social networks, Zach King amazes viewers with incredible special effects in videos of only 6 seconds. He now has over 2 million followers on Vine and 1.3 million on Instagram.

The first French brand to work with the King of social networks, Lacoste is releasing 5 vines, each featuring a digital sleight of hand, the online star’s calling card. Zach, who gained fame through his online videos, which showed him transforming into a dog and running through walls, is using his talents to showcase the content and features of the brand’s new e-commerce website.

The vines are being released over a period of two weeks on Lacoste’s Vine and Instagram, as well as other social platforms. The first was posted on October 20th.
