Execution

HTC wants to keep that brilliant and remarkable way of working of 2011, but how can we do it with practically ZERO budget for a whole year?

Nortec Bostich+Fussible were using HTC One as their new tool to produce music but we needed to spread the word, so we came up with an astonishing tour kick-off: taking over one of the hottest zones of the city with a video mapping projection in an iconic building: El Plaza, concert hall, and the best: Nortec playing live on street.

Fans of the band knew about this through guerrilla teaser campaign, social media to generate expectation and interaction, and only a very few would be lucky to be invited to a private party with Nortec after street showcase.

After kick-off, communication became organic in band website, media blogs, Twitter, Facebook, newspapers, radio interviews and branded presence in 12 cities where concerts were held.

Strategy

In 2011, HTC was launched in Mexico with heavy media weight behind, but for 2012 all budget was cut back with one of the most incredible devices to be launched: HTC One.

HTC needed to maintain the attention around the brand for an unsurprisingly target, but with high affinity to tech trends: geek expressionist.

In a category where the communication was boring and players were showing basic features, underestimating the real power of a smartphone, we found the best match between the target and HTC ONE’s features - music.

With the perfect excuse: a bottom up strategy putting HTC OneX in the hands of one of the most contemporary electronic bands Nortec Bostich+Fussible. So, we asked them why not use HTC OneX as their tool to produce all their music of 2012 tour, highlighting the device’s Amazing Camera and the Authentic Sound.
