EAST HANOVER, N.J., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucky fans received the surprise of a lifetime at the sold-out 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) concert in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 15 - thanks to Nabisco. Known for being leaders in the snacking industry, Nabisco is also recognized for bringing unique and innovative experiences to their consumers. The snack maker continued the tradition with the announcement of its 2015 title sponsorship of the "Rock Out With Your Socks Out" tour; 5SOS's first-ever headlining North American tour.
Surprise, 5 Seconds of Summer Style
Nabisco's beloved brands Chips Ahoy!, RITZ and Honey Maid teamed-up with 5SOS to surprise true "5SOSFAM" fans this weekend. An interactive consumer photo booth was set-up outside the concert at The Forum in Los Angeles. Fans thought it was just a special booth to capture celebratory photos of excited concert goers, but while backstage, the 5SOS band members watched them having fun on a secret Nabisco camera.
Jocelyn Jimenez, Lesley Ramirez and Esmeralda Miranda of Culver City, CA were just a few of the girls shocked when all four boys fashioned the ultimate photo bomb – surprising the three girls in the booth for an exciting and unsuspected meet and greet. The best part? It was all captured via hidden video cameras – check it out at youtube.com/Nabiscoand5SOS.
"Surprising our fans in the booth was epic. We really appreciate all of their support and getting the chance to meet some of them in a fun way like this is always cool," said the bandmates of 5 Seconds of Summer. "We'll be doing more fun stuff with Nabisco on our tour next year!"
