Last Year, during my internship at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet, I made a video clip for the french contest of Lady Gaga called “French This Way” !
(I already put the video online, so if you want to see it again, just go there ! )
I can say that this contest was literally speaking, a war ! When I posted my video clip on the Lady Gaga’s platform, the hostilities begun : actually the aim of the contest was to gather most views as possible to exceed the 25th place in the contest. I had to share my video on the social networks with my friends, I had to convince the director and the communication department of the theatre to put my video on their newsletter and on the Athénée’s blog (and they did it).
But the real fight to lead was the one against the other participants of the contest : when I managed to reach more than 15ooo views on youtube (which is actually huge) they accused me of cheating (they said that I bought some views on the Internet, which is possible on some websites), they also threatened to report my video to Youtube as a pronographic nature video (beacause when a video is reported, she is automatically removed of the contest) !
This experience was very rewarding for me : I learned how to make a buzz on the Internet (and today my video has more thant 30000 views), but it was also an exhausting work against the other participants, which asked me to be always present on the website, always guarding my video against abusive threats and lies ! A real war for Gaga !
