In 2011, pop music sensation One Direction became the first English music group to reach the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart with a debut album. Assembled by Simon Cowell in 2010 and introduced on Cowell’s The X Factor television series, One Direction quickly amassed tween fans in England and the United States through a unique interactive marketing campaign. According to the campaign’s narrative, a One Direction superfan who went by the moniker “1DCyberpunk” stole the band’s laptop, promising only to give it back when fans proved their support by completing a series of social media-based challenges. Active participants were rewarded with exclusive content and events, culminating in a massive online album listening party during which the laptop was finally returned.
