San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
The next iteration of Levi's "Live Unbuttoned" campaign launches virally today with Jonathan Clay's trueWidget http://www.trueanthem.com/jonathanclay, a sleek music player developed by trueAnthem that lives on social networking web pages and can be passed virally from friend to friend.
Fans of Jonathan Clay and Levi's simply "grab" the trueWidget and drop it onto their websites, thus bringing his music and the already famed "Live Unbuttoned" campaign to life on their own web pages.
"It's exciting when a brand like Levi's sees the viral power that a trueWidget can bring to their campaign," said trueAnthem CEO Brad Barnes. "Bands are experiencing as much as 20 degrees of separation from each widget grabbed - a number which continues to exponentially grow. Incredible brand loyalty is forming around the fully integrated campaigns now launching, with fans feeling a sense of social responsibility to pass them on."
trueAnthem allows fans to play, download and easily pass along music from their favorite bands to their friends via its proprietary trueWidget. The Levi's "Live Unbuttoned" Jonathan Clay trueWidget comes fully loaded with 10 exclusive free music tracks, an audio message from Jonathan, and two exclusive videos. Limited Levi's promotional offers will be introduced in the coming weeks to further promote the viral campaign. Each song is introduced with customized, 8-second Levi's 501 trueAds created and mixed by Clay with links back to the Levi's site included in the trueWidget.
