Describe the objective of the promotion.
Skank is one of the most popular bands in Brazil. And it's hard to be close to your fans, when you have millions. Our objective then was to use the newest single of Skank to promote their brand image and to approximate the band to the fans.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Our insight was: today, videos have turned the Internet into a big stage. But, usually, it is a big stage with lonely musicians. So… what if we invite everyone to a big virtual jam session with Skank? Well... that’s what we’ve done. We invited people to sing and play in a virtual jam session with Skank themselves and also to take part of the next music video of the band.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
For a fan, what's the value of singing a duet or playing with his idol? That's what we offered to people. We received videos from all over the world. Professional musicians, amateurs, famous people, unknown talent - we got all kinds of videos. The song became open source and the site became a great jam session. Amazing for the band image, incredible to their public.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
• More than 30.000 versions of Skank's newest single was made by people.
• More than 200 music videos of the same song was generated.
• Some of those music videos were broadcast by MTV.
• Skank was invited to many TV shows to talk about the project and to present their new song.
• The project was highlighted in many of the most important music publications in Brazil like Rolling Stone Magazine, MTV, UOL Music.
• More than 15 Brazilian famous artists decided to join the project singing or playing with Skank, promoting a new flight of spontaneous media.
