VIA House Band Wants You to Help ‘Get it to Bowie’

Get it to BowieThe house band over at agency VIA have one very large Christmas wish: for David Bowie to cover one of their Christmas songs. They’d like to request your help in making that happen.

Visitors to the “Get it to Bowie” website can watch video of the band introducing the idea (which includes many terrible, and one decent, Bowie impression), listen to their Christmas songs, and spread the word via Twitter. There’s also a place to forward information to someone who knows Bowie (or knows someone who knows Bowie), and a button to click if you are David Bowie (which tweets to the agency that he’s agreed to cover one of their songs). Obviously, this is a far-fetched proposition, but there’s something appealing about VIA’s earnest enthusiasm. Good luck guys, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.
