Just noticed this annotation at the end of the "Beer" music video, curious if any of you ever got to try this. Unsurprisingly when I tried my text didn't get sent, as I imagine the number's probably no longer in service lol, or my carrier just hates me. http://puu.sh/BlITD/11d7d8b3b9.JPG If the image doesn't work please let me know, I'll post another link. It's just a screencap from the last second of the video on YouTube.
"Secret house party list" at end of "Beer" music video?Started 3 weeks ago by mybrickhead / toggle topic info
wasn't this a thing when Carried Away dropped where you could DL ringtones and such?
I'd say you're a bit - excuse the pun - late to the party, mybrickhead...
The Secret House Party stuff ties in with promotions and tours around the time of the 'Carried Away' album, so I'd assume the number was related to that as well. As OceanMan mentioned above there was also a VIP (Very Important Partier) pass issued along with the album that could be redeemed for "party favors" at shows, downloading a bonus track ('All Good Things', which was included on the 2LP but not on the CD IIRC?) and some PUTS ringtones. I'd reckon texting that number would've gotten you similar perks and/or put you on the list to receive information about upcoming appearances.
There's some pretty sweet Secret House Party posters, a printed tote bag and possibly other promo goodies as well BTW. You can probably find some images on here by rummaging around old(er) posts...
I'm going to see if my VIP pass still has 'party favors' entitlement this Autumn. after all. It has no expiry date.
