“PAINT THE TOWN BLACK” AND CREATE HISTORY WITH GUINNESS® SINGAPORE!
Brand to launch a first-of-its-kind social media campaign in the lead up to its first Arthur’s Day™ celebrations here
Singapore, 17th September 2012: With this year’s Arthur’s Day celebrations around the corner, GUINNESS® Singapore has today launched “Paint the Town Black”, a campaign aimed at engaging fans online and on ground by combining social media and traditional out-of-home media to celebrate Arthur’s Day.
Through the creation of an innovative Facebook application, GUINNESS fans will be able to participate in the real-time painting of a massive Arthur’s Day outdoor site hosted at CityLink Mall, which links One Raffles Link to City Hall and Esplanade MRT Station.
To participate, fans will have to first “like” the GUINNESS Singapore Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Guinness.SG) on their computer or tablet and access the “Paint the Town Black” application. After selecting a space on the artwork canvas between today and tomorrow from 11.30am to 8.00pm to “paint”, a synchronised “spider-plotter” device will paint on the huge canvas in real-time using a water-based spray paint.

The entire painting process will be streamed “live” on Facebook so fans will get to see the progress of the artwork being revealed along the way. Fans can also head down to CityLink Mall (venue located near outlet #B1 32-34) during the mall hours of 10am to 10pm to view the “Paint the Town Black” activation in the flesh.
Singapore is the first of three markets to launch this first-of-its-kind application and campaign globally. “Paint the Town Black” is part of the brand’s use of marketing innovation to engage fans and drum up excitement for this year’s Arthur’s Day, which will be celebrated globally for the fourth year. Arthur’s Day is an annual music event which celebrates those who, like GUINNESS founder Arthur Guinness, are distinctive, bold and epitomise the concept “Made of More”. It is also a celebration of Arthur Guinness’ legacy and the much loved GUINNESS brand.
