Only By the Night Home Movies: Giving Fans a Candid Look at the Band
When the Kings of Leon needed an unconventional approach to launch their album Only By the Night, we created an online viral marketing program that gave fans a candid look at the lives of the band members.
“Only By the Night: The Home Movies” was a daily series of 23 online clips leading up to the album’s release. The clips had an honest, authentic style that revealed a personal side to the members of the band.
After the first clip launched, it received more than 50,000 online views a day. The band’s YouTube channel hit number 1 during the campaign. The “home movies” have had more than 9 million views to date and the album has sold more than 9 million copies thus far.
