Context

It’s crazy to see what young people carry on their smart phones nowadays. They have pictures, contacts, e-mails, games and one essential ingredient to facilitate a good time: music!

With the new Samsung wireless Bluetooth Speakers you can listen to your favorite music anytime and anywhere, share it with others and enjoy brilliantly rich sound quality.

Young people (generally 15 to 25 years old) will now feel empowered to enjoy and share music with their friends without worrying about portability. Not only can they enjoy the music while hanging out with friends at parties, but the wireless speakers can also improve peaceful and romantic moments.

Creative Challenge

Create an original and unexpected video or animation with viral potential, showing how great it is to enjoy and share music with others anytime, anywhere thanks to Samsung’s wireless Bluetooth Speakers.

Your video or animation must be emotionally engaging and show how Samsung’s Bluetooth Speakers can make a surprisingly positive impact in young people’s lives and enrich special moments. Don’t make a TV commercial; we are looking for something authentic and personal. The story you tell can be quirky and with an unexpected twist.

By “viral potential” we mean something viewers will want to share with their friends because it is catchy, unusual or daring.

Your videos will be used online to introduce Samsung’s Bluetooth Speakers to our target audience of young people.

TIPS:

We are giving you examples to help you understand what we expect. Please do not copy these in your submission as it will be rejected.

Two friends are about to spend the evening at a lake; they arrive, set everything up, prepare a BBQ, and start chatting. One of themsets up the Samsung Bluetooth Speakers and connects them to his phone. The music starts and we can tell that they are enjoying themselves, preparing food and chilling. Some people start arriving, drawn in by the music; they bring food to cook on the BBQ and drinks to share. By the end of the video, there are about thirty people on the jetty, dancing and having fun together. Music, played by Samsung’s Bluetooth Speakers, was the element that allowed a spontaneous party to get started.
