Premium beer brand Heineken wants to know if legends are born or made, and they're going to some pretty extreme measures to put their theory to the test. The 'Voyage' campaign has guys being plucked from their everyday lives and droped them into a world unlike anything they've ever seen, to see how they're able to adapt to the situation. These lucky participants are in for the trip of a lifetime – They just don't know it yet!
Check out this promo video from the Heineken Dropped series, which shows Greek yoga instructor Stavros getting dropped in the middle of the Cambodian jungle, left to fend for himself on on a giant duck boat:
Pretty crazy, right? Just think about it. Could you survive in a remote location with just basic supplies and directions, left to find your own way home? While I consider myself a pretty adventurous person, getting dropped off in a foreign country like this sounds pretty hardcore, and don't know if I'd be up for the challenge.
But let me tell you, I'd love to watch other people playing out these real-life scenarios and see how they make out. And we can do just that, as Heineken is posting their videos online for the world to see! Who needs so called "reality TV" when you've got the real thing right here!
Every three weeks, a new Dropped Voyage experience is released. Dropped episodes 1, 2, and 3 are available for viewing on Heineken's YouTube channel, so head over there and watch how each adventure plays out. Each episode is fairly short, so you'll be get caught up on all the action.up-to-date in no time.
Specially marked packs of Heineken will have a code you can redeem to play an online game that tests your own navigation skills as you embark on a digital voyage. A lucky few will even win their own legendary travel experience, with prizes on offer to include adrenalin filled travel adventures and perhaps the ultimate adventurer’s discipline – space-training. Make sure you pick up these special packs of Heineken today!
So what do you think – Could you survive being dropped?
