Valiant Calendar Coming to Fans After Twitter Trash-Talk
In a definitely unofficial but still very awesome announcement, Valiant Entertainment will be bringing calendars to their list of cool stuff for us. This is not your standard press release though. This is me geeking out over a company getting involved with their fans and playing with us.
Just a couple days ago a conversation started on twitter where WhoDooTV and VE CEO Dinesh Shamdasani back and forth on getting the fans calendars made up. What happened next was just shy of 48 hours of trash-talking, Valiant loving, social media madness and fun after Dinesh weighed in on the original post and gave a goal. If that original tweet could get a like for each calendar day, it would be done.
I was tagged in by Christopher Amundson regular guest on WhoDooTV somewhere between 200 and 300 likes and cannot resist a good challenge so in we went. Honestly, this was an absolute blast and Valiant calendars are now going to be made up as a result. Let’s take a moment and look at what this was. A fan engaging super fun way to spread Valiant’s good name. Further to that, games like this acknowledge fans roles in a publishers success by rewarding their passion. This helps people feel as though they are part of the bigger picture- which they are.
Whether it be because Dinesh Shamdasani is an absolute peach, fun loving or a marketing genius who knows how to tap into Valiant’s market or a combination there of, one thing is for certain. I’m excited to see what VE does next, they do so keep us on our toes. Wait- we do know what comes next- it’s calendars!
Here’s the original post in all it’s glory and make sure to stop by and let us know who you’d like to see on the calendar!
Would anyone else be interested in a @ValiantComics 2018 wall calendar?
