Grab Before It Goes – Free 5th CD Cover Version For “Flying Get” Distributed

23 08 2011

If you were lucky enough to be around Shibuya Station this morning, you might have been able to grab a free CD cover for AKB48’s newest single Flying Get. The free CD cover (the 5th CD cover for this single) was put up on the wall inside the station and within an hour all 3,000 covers were gone. The covers were pressed with a gold stamp which said “Furage Nintei (Flying Get Authorization)“. The people that did manage to get this cover now have a rare item on their hands as this special cover will not be available in the shops at all. This was a very clever way of promoting the release of the single. I doubt that anybody has done this kind of thing before. Wish I’d have been able to grab one of the covers.
