Because no-one knows his exact date of birth, (Mr) Jack’s birthday is always celebrated for the whole of September. This year involves an ambitious project in “The Bar That Jack Built” – the world’s first crowd sourced bar built entirely from the love of Jack Daniel’s, by fans.
The campaign is being run through social media and kicks off with a recruitment shout-out to all Jack Daniel’s Facebook fans in New South Wales. They are being asked to donate materials, time, expertise and ideas in reward for Jack Daniel’s product and merchandise. The more they give, the more they get with the biggest contributors getting tickets to the grand opening on September 27th.
From the carpenters, elecricians and designers who put the bar together, to the artists and musicians who perform on the night, every person’s contribution will be because they’re a fan of Jack Daniel’s. Especially since everyone that participates will be rewarded with Jack Daniel’s product.
Tom Spicer, ECD Arnold Furnace said of the campaign, “There aren’t many brands that inspire such levels of enthusiasm and loyalty from their fans as Jack Daniel’s. With The Bar That Jack Built we’re out to quantify that love and build something tangible out of it in the form of a living breathing bar.”
Nora-Kate O’Connell, Brand Manager, Jack Daniel’s added, ”By asking our friends of the brand to participate in the creation of a Jack Daniel’s bar we are encouraging them to become a part of the brand and show us their true character. We are extremely passionate about this campaign which gives the brand a chance to give back to the friends who have given us so much over the years. Here’s to raising a Jack to Jack this September.”
