HEXBUG jumps onto Vine & Instagram, launches #theycanclimb Video Contest
Using our new gravity-defying Nano V2 tube-crawling robotic creatures as our inspiration, starting August 5, 2013 we are kicking off the launch of our Vine and Instagram accounts by hosting a #theycanclimb video contest! Vine is a mobile app that lets users create six-second looped videos, and Instagram is a mobile app that lets users create fifteen-second videos – both of which can easily be shared or embedded on your Twitter or Facebook accounts.
To participate, all you need is a Vine and Twitter account or an Instagram and Facebook account, know what a hashtag is, and include #theycanclimb with your entry. Your goal is to capture something that’s inspired by climbing, and incorporate HEXBUGs into the post whenever possible. You can see some of our very own #theycanclimb videos directly on our Instagram and Vine channels.
Every entrant will receive a $5 promo code off their next purchase on www.HEXBUG.com. Limit to one entry per week. To receive your $5 promotional code, simply post your videos to Twitter or Facebook, with the hashtag #theycanclimb, and we will direct message you with the code. We will also be picking a weekly winning #theycanclimb post to feature on our site www.nanov2.com, which we will share on our social media channels. Weekly winners will receive a Nano V2 Black Hole set equivalent to a $50 retail value.
