The series, which is the latest phase of a global tie-up between HP and the French producer to promote its laptops and headphones ranges, will launch next month (March 6) on online video platform Dailymotion and David Guetta’s YouTube channel.
Episodes will feature five three across Europe including Poland, France, Germany & Spain and will follow the DJ as he tours each of the cities’ top clubs. The partnership is also extending to include David Guetta’s wife, Cathy, as she visits her favourite European fashion designers.
The consumer electronics maker is hoping that the series will be shared via the French DJ’s Facebook page, which has over 23 million fans, to help boost its HP Beats products in the computer accessories market.
Additional activity includes a product placement deal that will see HP products appear in one of David Guetta’s upcoming music videos.
The tie-up was brokered by product placement agency, My Love Affair, who are working with David Guetta and other artists including Charlie Winston and Julian Perretta as well as record labels such EMI, to identify content opportunities around new singles.
Last year it partnered Guetta with Renault to promote the car marque’s electric car the Twitzy, in his music video with rapper Flo Rida, ‘Where Them Girls At.’
Advertisers are increasingly looking to branded content deals with music labels and artists in a bid to tap into their existing fan bases for new consumers. Earlier this month Madonna premiered her latest music video, ‘Give Me All Your Loving’, featuring Smirnoff vodka throughout. It is part of the pop singer’s deal with Diageo on the spirit brand’s Nightlife Exchange Project Dance.
