It would help promote Scandal internationally if they had an official YouTube channel with PVs and announcements about upcoming releases. Tell Scandal's management how much you would appreciate an official channel and be entered to win a Scandal CD, DVD, or book of your choice from Scandal Heaven!

How it works:
- Write a polite email to Epic Records Japan (epic_industry@epic-jp.net) telling them how great it would be to have an official YouTube channel for Scandal.
- Then, send a tweet to Scandal's official twitter account (@scandal_band) asking if they have or plan to have an official YouTube channel.
- Afterwards post here when you've sent your email and tweet, and link to your twitter message.
- Out of those who participate, one person will be randomly selected by Scandal Heaven on December 15th to receive a Scandal CD, DVD or book of their choice shipped to them from CDJapan! (If the winner is under 18 you will need to have a parent or guardian supply their mailing address. The winner is responsible for any VAT/customs fee if your country charges you for imports.)

Don't know what to write about?
- Tell how you'd like to spread the word about Scandal to your friends but you can't find any PVs to show them.
- Talk about the success of other artists in getting exposure from YouTube (k-pop has a lot of examples, SNSD, 2ne1, etc all get a ton of views on their official releases.)
- Say how you would support an official channel by subscribing and adding official videos to your youtube favorites.

Let's all encourage Scandal to promote themselves internationally!

EDIT:
Thanks again to everyone who supported Scandal and participated. The winner has been chosen!



EDIT AGAIN:
Success! Their official channel has been launched!

SWEET!!! I'd want to send them a personally hand written letter just to show my full dedication, but I guess this method works too... HA HA! Thanks for the heads up bud!

As for my prize... I want my sticks back... AUTOGRAPHED!!!

That I'll request personally in the email as well... hurr...

You think it'll give us more kudos if we mention we're supporters from SH also?...

Yeah, Epic Records Japan doesn't list a mailing address for english-language contacts.

Feel free to mention Scandal Heaven and tell them how many fans Scandal has all around the world! I wouldn't mention our little giveaway contest though, we want to make sure the messages come across sincerely. :)

This is nice alright, I do believe Epic Records Japan will take mails in English... but the tweets to @scandal_band, can we be sure? Because my Japanese is only good enough to make very simple phrases...

Eisuke manages that account and I think he can understand some English.

As a side note, don't spam their accounts, if you spam it is unlikely they will even read it.

Well I do hope his english is better then my Japanese =D

@NathanielG
I think don't spam is pretty much given for any member of SH, at least I hope it is... but you do have a point... if a bazillion of people suddenly send tweets to him in English he might think it is spam... but apparently... not many people are participating in this... so I don't think it will be a problem.

Anyway, going to right the e-mail and tweet tomorrow, and then post here with link. Do I have to post a copy of my mail here as well? or only the tweet?

Just the tweet is fine. I think we can trust people to actually send the email :)

Well I have already sent the mail, if they give any answer I will keep you guys updated =).
Also here is the tweet I sent. I tried to make it as simple and short as possible for understanding purposes, since I wrote in English. If I need to write more then tell me and I will do so. =)
http://twitter.com/#!/GorrHammer/status/138089710391279617

On my mail I mentioned how I believed it would help the band boost their popularity if they had an official YouTube channel, and talked about people how are just curious about what kind of musics SCANDAL has to offer but doesn't want to buy an CD/DVD yet before they have a taste of some of their musics/PVs (I was one of them Hohoho Onion )
Also I said how it would specially help fans who live outside of Japan to keep updated about recent news from the band, etc.
Anyway... just saying some of what I wrote for anyone who doesn't know what to write.

At least I hope my English was/is good enough for them to understand haha.

Great idea. Maybe on niconico also isn't a bad idea. Love Struck

@Hammer : It's short and sweet :D But about updating news I think they will still like us to stick to their website?

Yeah I thought of that as well, but I don't know... I mean, I for example, do not keep checking their site regularly, or of any other band that I like.
I do go check (on the official website) when they update something on their Facebook/twitter, YouTube channel, or in SCANDAL case, when someone here posts any news xD.

So what I would suggest was update their official channel with a shorter version of the most important news/announcements just to keep the fans updated, but have the hole article in their website with a link to it.

But I agree with you, they would provably still want us to stick to their website, but it doesn't hurt to try eh? Hohoho Onion

On a side note, I usually use fan pages/sites to keep myself updated. They are usually updated more often and more complete (at least for small announcements/news). But oh well, they need to know that. Onion Tea

They use twitter all the time for news updates, I don't think they're trying to keep news exclusive to the website.
