Vodafone IN supports Victoria College students’ creativity with Social Media challenge

Because it’s never the same without your friends, back in 2015 Vodafone Egypt launched a network “Vodafone IN” to keep youth in touch with your group. The launch campaign key message was set to be “It won’t work without you”

The network was created for the youths of today and their love for being online all the time. IN by Vodafone includes unlimited internet access to social media and music apps such as Nile FM.

The original campaign video included Egyptian artists such as Cairokee led by Amir Eid, Youssra El Hawary, Elmadfagya and Sharmoofers band​.

Social Media Engagement = Campaign Reborn:

After two years, Victoria College Alexandria students have spontaneously decided to use Vodafone IN song as the main theme for their graduation video.

One of the students, Marwan Tarek, seems to be behind the direction of the video. Perhaps this means he may have a bright future ahead, especially with the publicity the video is now receiving.

Victoria Collage Students reproduced IN Vodafone’s hit song “منغيرك مش هتكمل” and requested their very own Cairokee concert. So IN decided to challenge them for 100K shares on their video. And they accepted the challenge!

Victoria College students in Alexandria must be stunned as the telecommunications giant has shared their graduation video, and has encouraged fans of their page to share the video.

Currently, the video on the Facebook page has gained over 910K views and over 20k comments.
