UK: Foster's launches big brother style promotion
Foster's is continuing the theme that fuelled the Aussie lager's sponsorship of the UK TV's 'No Worries Weekend' with a major new promotion with the Capital Radio Group.
Running for three weeks from 30th July radio listeners will be given the chance to chill out and enjoy the ultimate in laid-back lifestyles- on a mysterious island that has been re-christened Foster's 'No Worries Island'.
The activity is being pre-promoted on air with live reads and recorded trails and on the Capital website where visitors will be asked to confirm their 'No Worries' credentials and register to participate in the competition on-air.
Contestants selected from the on-line registration will be interviewed by 'Foxy' on the Breakfast Show and listeners will be invited to vote in Big-Brother style via phone, fax or e-mail for the person they would like to nominate for a berth aboard the 'Fosters No Worries Cruiser,' a specially chartered boat moored on the Thames which will act as a staging post for 'No Worries Island'.
Each day five crewmates will complete a series of mental and physical 'No Worries' style tasks and the winner will be rewarded with a two-week trip for two to 'No Worries Island'.
The remaining four contestants stay aboard the boat where they will be joined by a new contestant from the Dr Fox Breakfast Show, to complete the next day's challenges for another chance to win a trip to the island.
