Miami, Florida. May 3rd, 2007 – MTV Latin America, MTV Brazil and Chevrolet announced today that they have partnered to deliver RALLY MTV; an innovative, multi-market, action packed mini series. The eight episode adventure will follow five up-and-coming bands across Latin America (including Brazil) in their quest for stardom and the chance to win their own personalized Chevrolet automobile and a music video to air on MTV Latin America, MTV Brazil and MTV Tr3s in the US.

For approximately 21 days, MTV will combine the thrill of an international road rally with the excitement of discovering new musical talent as they pit five of the best up-and-coming bands in a race across Latin America. The competing bands will travel Latin America from the distant lands of Patagonia in Argentina to the beautiful beaches of Maresias in Brazil performing outrageous stunts in their pursuit to win RALLY MTV.

“This dynamic multi-platform deal, which includes product integration, original production and online elements tailored specifically with Chevrolet in mind, is just one of the variety of ways we offer our international advertisers a 360° experience,” said John Mafoutsis, Senior Vice President, Ad Sales for MTV Networks Latin America. “Chevrolet is the perfect partner for this production and we are delighted to have collaborated with them on RALLY MTV to create a viewer experience that capitalizes on the strength of the two brands."

Don Johnson, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing for General Motors Latin America, Africa and Middle East said, “Chevrolet has always embraced the association between cars and music, especially in Latin America. In fact, as a component of its evolving relationship and history with music, last year Chevrolet created the annual Chevy Latin Music Award. One day, we may bestow that honor to the winners of RALLY MTV”.

Teams hailing from such diverse locales as Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, and the U.S. will convene at the starting point in Indiatuba just outside of Sao Paulo, Brazil. They will then travel through Brazil, hop to Chile for a taste of more rugged terrain, and then drive clear across Argentina for the finale in Buenos Aires. The first band to arrive at the concert stage in Buenos Aires will be announced the winner of Rally MTV and get to play in front of thousands of new fans and record label executives for a chance to score a record deal and launch their career.

“Rally MTV is a perfect collaboration between the MTV brand and Chevrolet,” commented Corinna Keller, Vice President International Marketing Partnerships and Brand Solutions for MTV Networks Latin America. “This partnership demonstrates the type of unique and creative opportunities we offer advertisers in the region and we’re confident that our viewers will be sucked into the excitement of this extreme battle of the bands.”
