Read the (almost) full chat with Fergal Lawler from yesterday’s video countdown. Only missing a couple of lines of fans chatting together at the very beginning, before Fergal was here.

There was also a bug/freeze in the chat window during the countdown before the launch of the video and a couple of lines might be missing there as well, or more likely appearing in the wrong order.

#ZombieToABillion – “Be one of the billion”

October 3, 2019  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Soon after the video premiere of “Zombie” (live at Astoria), The Cranberries posted on their socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) a 28sec video to officially launch the #ZombieToABillion campaign:

They also updated their Facebook and Twitter accounts with the new banner, “Be one of the billion #ZombieToABillion”

Some fans also noticed that The Cranberries had momentarily changed their Instagram name by the words “Zombie Billion” (below a screen shot of their Instagram Stories announcing the NNTA 25th Anniversary). The name of the account has since changed again, back to “The Cranberries”

For those who still don’t know what the #ZombieToABillion campaign is all about, just know that once the official “Zombie” music video reaches a billion views, a remastered 4K version will be released on YouTube. Still something like 42 Millions to go!!

It all started earlier today with The Cranberries posting on Twitter and Facebook asking fans to head to YouTube to live chat with Fergal before the Zombie (London Astoria ’94) premiere. A 20sec video was posted with it:

When The Cranberries posted this message, the live chat had already started and Fergal had already introduced himself. Chat started more or less at 4:30pm (BST), 30 minutes before the HD video premiere:

After a few minutes Fergal posted about the boxset, “we are working on a boxed set of NNTA which will be out early next year”

…and if you still haven’t watched the Astoria HD video yet, go to YouTube now, quality is AWESOME!!!
