In 2013 Travis Barker reached out to us to do a partnership for Holiday '13.
After brainstorming with Famous Stars and Straps owner and founder Travis Barker, he told us he wanted to sacrifice his 1965 Cadillac Coupe DeVille as a part of a sweepstakes. We thought he was going crazy, but Travis was pretty adamant about it and told us "No one cares about a bag of money, we go harder!"
After we ran the sweepstakes for a little over a month, we collected close to 85K entries. A winner was picked at random and on January 10th, the Tilly's crew teamed up with Travis Barker & the Famous Family to head out to Visalia, CA and hand over the Cadillac to the lucky winner Nando.
When the winner was drawn, we called up Nando and told him he was the runner up. Obviously he was bummed, but we couldn't leave him hanging, so we got him $500 worth of Famous Stars and Straps merchandise that he had to pick up at 1pm on January 10th. What Nando didn't know is that he was the actual winner of the sweepstakes.
When we met Nando at the store on January 10th we had him fit all the clothes that our friends over at Famous supplied us with. Little did Nando know is that Travis Barker was behind the store ready the roll up in the caddy and hand over the keys. When Nando put on his last outfit he posed for some last photos that our store staff was taking and then had him walk to the front of our store. A couple more photos in front of the store and................ there he was, Mr. Travis Barker personally delivering the '65 Cadillac Coupe DeVille to the lucky winner of our Holiday sweepstakes Nando!
Watch the recap video and some photos of the giveaway below.
A massive shout out to Travis Barker and the Famous Stars and Straps Family. This is one of the most epic sweepstakes we've ran and we couldn't have done it without you guys.
