VIDDY, Linkin Park team on latest Production Pack for the social music app

Linkin Park, which in 2003 MTV2 named the sixth greatest band of the music video era and the third best of the new millennium behind Oasis and Coldplay has joined the VIDDY generation. The alternative rock group became the latest to team social mobile video app VIDDY with a new Linkin Park Production Pack.

The Grammy Award-winning band joins the likes of Snoop Dogg, Incubus, T-Pain, The Muppets (yes, The Muppets) and Mindless Behavior with a Viddy Production Pack that allows fans to create their own 15-second music videos using innovative special effects and five new Linkin Park soundtracks, produced by the band exclusively for VIDDY.

Remember, the VIDDY app is free in the App Store, but these production packs are in-app purchases, made directly through the VIDDY app itself.

As noted, there are five Linkin Park Production Packs, each retailing for $0.99. Or, you can buy all five as a bundle for $1.99. As a special promotion, Linkin Park is giving away one production pack for free.

Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park said, "We're always looking for innovative ways to connect with our fans and Viddy provides a new and exciting creative outlet."

In addition, Linkin Park and VIDDY are offering the group's fans the chance to win an autographed guitar. Users must create their own Linkin Park band member impersonation and then upload to VIDDY for submission (you can view a fan-created Linkin Park band impersonation sample HERE).

The group itself will choose the winning submission and will announce the contest winner on Facebook on March 22. You can view contest details HERE.

VIDDY co-founder, Brett O’Brien, "From Incubus, to Snoop Dogg and T-Pain and now Linkin Park, Viddy has seen an amazing adoption by some of the world's top artists! Linkin Park, one of the world’s most popular bands brings an element to Viddy that very few mobile app communities have. I can't wait to see who wins the autographed guitar!”

VIDDY is consistently ranked as one of the Top 25 Free apps available for download in the iTunes App Store, and in the Top 5 in the photo/video category. It did have a narrow escape recently, though. It was temporarily booted from the App Store due to racy material being uploaded by some users.
