It was brought to my attention that Duran Duran Appreciation Day is coming up! In fact, it is on Wednesday. Last year, we hosted an all-day, all-night party. The party featured a video playlist in which everyone watched the same video at the same time and then talked about it on social media. It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed picking out some of our favorite videos, which you can see here.
This year, though, we are unable to host a 24-hour party. Rhonda is on vacation and I’m stuck at a bunch of work meetings. Blah. That said, we cannot allow the holiday to happen without doing something!
I would like everyone to pick out some Duran Duran videos on YouTube. In fact, I want everyone to pick out 4 videos that fit the following categories (or to the best of your ability as these categories are tough to decide!):
- Your Favorite Song
- Your Favorite Video
- Your Favorite Interview
- Your Favorite Live Performance
Let me provide an example:
Then, send your 4 choices to us via Facebook, Twitter, here as a comment, or to our email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday. I will create a playlist on YouTube of all of the choices so that everyone can see people’s favorites. Of course, I would also encourage people to share those choices on personal social media accounts all day on Wednesday in order to get Duran Duran trending on our very special holiday! For Twitter, we suggest that everyone use the following hashtag: #DDAD16.
Let’s celebrate Duran Duran properly on Wednesday!
