Chris Turner is an incredible British Rapper and Comedian who specialises in freestyles, taking audience suggestions. He has >400k subs on Youtube, with his most popular video getting 17M views. He has 13k followers on Insta as well, but Youtube is his main market.
OwnTheDoge has a personal connection to Chris, and we were in talks with him last year about doing an activation. I’d like to propose that we pick up the conversation.
Chris is highly intelligent, charming, funny, cheeky, and gets/supports crypto. He also appreciates memes, and likes what we’re about.
We had originally considered flying him to an NFT event where OwnTheDoge would have a presence. The idea was to get him to approach crypto celebs and notable figures, and rap to them about OwnTheDoge.
Typically Chris does stage shows where he takes suggestions from the audience, but he has also produced many videos where he approaches strangers on the street and gets their suggestions for a freestyle rap. So our pitch is in his wheelhouse.
I’m interested in that original idea, flying Chris and a camera crew, and a fixer to an event like NFT NYC. The result of this could be a 3-5min video which is accessible and funny, highlighting the NFT NYC experience in general, but also providing a lot of info about OwnTheDoge and the ins and outs of our DAOge. The video could also be cut into shorter clips for our TikTok and Twitter profiles.
However, I am also interested in the idea of engaging him to pre-prepare a rap and content spoken to camera, as part of a set of educational videos, explaining OwnTheDoge, as well as buying/selling, Pixel Perks, etc. These standalone videos can help us to onboard new community members in a novel and funny way.
When we were last speaking, the fee was around 20k all inclusive.
If we engage him, I would like to see us get 1 main video 5-7m long, which we can cut into about 10 shorter snippets.
Additionally I would like to get 5 30sec videos educating and explaining some simple OwnTheDoge concepts that we are consistently trying to push (the difference between us as DogeCoin, and how to buy/lock Pixels for example).
I would hope Chris would share and promote the main video from his channel, and let us use them as we wish.
I think $25k is a fair rate for an artist of his calibre to creating marketing collateral like this. He may accept part payment in $DOG.
NFT NYC is in April, so perhaps we want to book him for this if possible, or maybe we don’t need him to be on the ground at an event, depending on what sort of engagement we want…
