Strawberry Frog has done a viral for Onitsuka Tiger, available here at putfile "Lovely football Karoke", and like their previous breath of fresh air for Onitsuka Tiger, it is firmly rooted in Japanese bizarre.
"Lovely Karaoke" is the world's first internet Karaoke competition!
The campaign is the world's first online karaoke competition using the Lovely Football anthem. Fans are invited to sing along to Lovely Football via the Onitsuka Tiger website using a microphone plugged into their PC. The website technology 'listens' to the accuracy of the singer's lyrics, tone, volume and key before allocating a score. The top five singers on 31 March, when the competition ends, win a pair of injector DX.
Mark Chalmers, creative director of StrawberryFrog, states: "Lovely Football builds on the legendary madness and hysteria of Japanese football fans at the 2002 World
Cup. This campaign combines Onitsuka Tiger's love of sport with lashings of football humour and a nod and a wink to the brand's Japanese heritage."
