Blake Shelton’s Very Cool Promotional Record Album That You Play With Your Phone [VIDEO]
I have to say this is a first! Talk about an expensive marketing tool. This came in the mail for me yesterday from none other than Blake Shelton's record company - a record that you play with your iPhone!
Here is what it looks like. It's a cardboard record player with a REAL record in it (Blake's new album called"Based On A True Story"). Now what you do is you scan the bar code shown at the bottom of the phone, and a picture of his album comes up on the screen. Then you place the phone on the album, and a fake tone arm shows up that is moveable. (The tone arm is what holds a needle, for you kids...)
So we tried this last night in the privacy of our own home, and here's what it looked like.
Isn't that amazing? This is a promotional album that is sent to members of the Country Music Association, of which I am a proud member.
Do any of you have record players at home? Are you thinking of buying one? Maybe you should! Albums are back and they sound sooooo good! Consider it!
