I'm sure plenty of you remember THIS giveaway from Easter weekend that came courtesy of my friends in Pantheon to celebrate the release of their E.P. Intervention for which I did the art and layouts.
They're soon to be featured on a Terrorizer cover CD among a plethora of other well respected publications!

Well, they're back with another giveaway for you!

This time around you can win the Humble Double Fine Bundle, complete with the games:

Brutal Legend
Stacking
Costume Quest
Psychonauts

To enter, you have to get a little crazy / creative.


Heres a blurb from the band explaining:

“As a band PANTHEON are working hard on building their profile, but we’re always looking for new ideas for promotion and publicity – our last giveaway with GOG was a unique experience that not only brought us a new audience, but a fresh outlook on ways for people to hear our music when so much of the internet is throttled by bands trying to promote themselves in the same old ways.
All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is come up with your own publicity idea for the band (realistic or not) and post it in this thread"


So you can be incredible, feasible or just plain silly - some of the crazy ideas might even work! - Look at some of the video virals that have taken off over the last few years! I do suggest if you can to post something serious and based around the band / their music / their style though as it will be bonus points!

If you havent yet heard the band, then goto http://www.pantheonofficial.com/#!media/cee5 and have a listen - further links are on their site for social media, YouTube etc.

Entry requires a 20 rep minimum and to have been a member since March 2013.
One entry per member.
I'm not in the band, so remember to visit their website and don't base your idea around me!
Draw will be done via random.org
The prize is the whole bundle.
You may gift your winnings.
You may enter on behalf of another GOG member (including one who does not yet meet the requirements).
Trading the won prizes would be frowned upon and will likely result in me testing out my poo trebuchet.
If you're not in, the Gnu will get you! O_o


So get to it folks! I'll be closing this sometime Monday evening GMT.

Also if anyone comes up with a really good idea and the band go through with it, you'll be fully accredited!

* * * * *

...oh, wait! THERE'S MORE!

To be in with a chance of winning a physical copy of their ep, figure out the answer to the question at http://www.pantheonofficial.com/#!media/cee5 and email them it from the contact page with the subject header "EP Giveaway"


GOOD LUCK!

You want publicity?!
YOU THINK YOU HAVE THE GUTS FOR IT?! TO SUFFER A MISERABLE EXISTANCE OF FAME AND GLORY?!

So come at me bro:

1.Dress up as Greek/Norse Gods (Pantheon, hurrr) and ride on ponies while half naked people with gnu masks are dancing on the background.
2. Upload it on youtube.

Hmmm...you could dress up as half-naked gnu mask wielders and throw people with chocolate while you tell them it's gnu-poo. Best promotion ever.
Well, the best way to gain publicity in a gaming community would be to perform inside a game. Just team up with some developers, send them one or two good recordings and some photos of your band members. Then they can include you giving a life concert in their game or mod.
I know, it has been done before (In Extremo performed in Gothic and Schandmaul in the "Nehrim" mod for Oblivion), but it still is a win-win idea. The devs get professional music for their game and you get publicity.

But if it has to be an original idea to enter, just perform on top of the Pantheon in Rome or Paris. Might be a bit difficult to sneak your equipment up there, but you will make the evening news and the name of your band will be known world wide!

They could complain that they are being unfairly censored. Then say that they are going to stick it to the man and let customers buy their stuff anyway, no matter what happens. Then you get curious people looking it up just to see what all the fuss is about, and rebels who buy it just to strike against censorship.

A small promotion flash game would become popular pretty fast.
Like, you do a Hotline Miami parody? You wear a Gnu-mask and throw poo at people.

I'm not in the band so it wouldn't make any sense, though if i was promoting myself...
Not in, but thanks and +rep,
And I'm totally not afraid of the Gnu! :P
1) Hack into the Barclays / RBS / Whatever bank is big in your country phone ystem & replace their hold music with your new album.
2) Hack the e-banking page & take it down.
3) Everyone phones the bank to complain / do phone banking instead.
4) the phones are overwhelmed & everyone has to listen to the hold music for ages....

And afterwards, for the entire duration of a very drawn out prosecution, vthe media will giving even more publicity

:D

Sweet giveaway, Sachys and Pantheon! I really appreciate when giveaways require me to say something; let's me stretch my creative muscles :)

How about, for a promotion, the band offers to rock out with a live audition...with you granny! Imagine Pantheon showing up at a nursing home, rocking the house down...priceless XD
NOT IN, but they are a really good band, well worth checking out for any metalheads lurking around here :)
