Tue, 29 Apr 2014 08:24:24
ARTISTdirect, Chideo and Linkin Park have teamed up to premiere this teaser video culled from footage of the band's album photo shoot in downtown Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. It stemmed from an Ask Me, which is a feature on Chideo.com where fans ask celebrities to do something and users can vote on specific Ask Me segments.
In case you don't know, Chideo (charity + video = chideo) is an interactive voting, suggestion and video platform where fans can discover and inspire one-of-a-kind content and experiences from their favorite personalities, all while making the world a better place. Chideo features personality-driven content across the broad spectrum of entertainment, sports, music, fashion, food, design and culture. With the option to donate and watch these exclusive videos, fans not only enjoy entertainment from their favorite personalities, but they also make valuable contributions to their respective charities.
Chideo Ask Me's with a significant amount of votes are then answered by the celebrity. In this case, fans asked Linkin Park to "Play a song without any instruments but instead with alternative items/ noises." Linkin Park answered this Ask Me challenge- by playing nontraditional instruments during their photo shoot.

We (Linkin Park) have an amazing relationship with our fans, so the idea that we could give them insider access and, together, support an amazing cause was really powerful. I'm looking forward to not only participating in Chideo as an artist, but also to sharing my insights about the music industry to help make the platform the best it can be."
