I believe everything happens for a reason.
A couple of years ago, my 2003 Toyota Corolla was broken into while I was at the movies. The vandals made out with my GPS and my beloved 64GB iPod (yes, I own a lot of music). Since I have an hour commute to work each way, I was pretty disappointed. Thankfully, I was actively using the desktop version of Spotify – the greatest streaming music service out there – and decided to sign up for their premium service. I have been a power user ever since…2 years and counting.
Because I am so brand loyal to Spotify, I wondered if they had any t-shirts I might be able to acquire. After a quick Google search, I ran across a few tees.
But first let me introduce you to the founders of Spotify: Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon. In my search for Spotify t-shirts, I ran across this awesome photo on Billboard.com featuring Spotify founder, Daniel Ek and the renown Sean Parker. Naturally, I love Ek’s “Suits Suck” t-shirt.
Next, I discovered that Spotify has a very active online community. Not only that, but they reward their active power users who promote the Spotify brand and help other users. I mean, they REALLY reward some of their users. It’s impressive. Just check out their Rock Star program to see for yourself.
One of their power users, a Finn who goes by the screen name of hpguru, grabbed some sweet swag…or in his words “goodies” from Spotify by being an active member of their community. Here are a couple of tees that Spotify sent him to thank him for his efforts.
I doubt I’m going to be able to post 4,000+ posts on their online community, but I’m definitely bound and determined to get a t-shirt someday.
A Spotify T-Shirt Update
1/8/2014: After linking this “Spotify T-Shirts” blog post on the online community forums out on Spotify.com, Rorey (an awesome community manager) for the company, asked me what my t-shirt size is and sent the following tee in the mail to me. Once I receive it, I’ll be sure to model it and post a photo of two of it on the blog.
