v[NEU] started an interesting project last week: If their PV for “mousou kiss” gets a specific number of views they will hold some extra events for you - and some of these events sound really interesting!
These are the promises the band made:
If the PV gets 50.000 views they will hold a high-five event after their One man live at Shibuya-AX on January 26th.
If the PV gets 100.000 views they will hold a free live after their live at Budokan on December 27th.
If the PV gets 300.000 views they will go on a special trip with their fans.
If the PV gets 1.000.000 views 5 fans will get the chance to kiss the members.
And the last and probably most interesting event is a “wedding ceremony”-event for 5 fans! The members will have this ceremony when the PV hits 10.000.000 views.
All views until January 25th, 2014 will count and the PV has already reached more than 108.000 views. The band revealed that they will hold the promised free live at a specific place in Tokyo. It won’t end before midnight, so if you want to attend the live you have to be of age.
And if you want to help the PV getting more views or if you just got interested in it click at the video above and watch it!
What do you think about these events and the PV itself? Tell us your opinion on it!
