I have noticed a change in the type of contest promotions and also prizes that Marlboro is offering. It seems to me to have moved from being male/Western/Out-doors/Cowboy/country oriented to being rather self-centered East Coast major metropolitan area yuppieish youth oriented. Almost as if Carrie Bradshaw was in charge. Have many of you picked up on this?
A lady I know who is the area manager of a chain of gasoline/convenience stores has told me that they recently did a survey at selected stores in her region. They offered a free pack of cigarettes to every customer, male and female, for a specific period of time (30 minutes). No previous advertising or warning, simply telling each customer at the register they had just been selected to receive a free pack of cigs if they were a smoker, what brand and size/flavor do you want? That most of the men, across all age groups, chose a Marlboro brand, followed by Camel and then Pall Mall. That most of the young women chose Marlboro Menthol, followed by Camel menthol, then Virginia slims.. They noted middle aged women seldom chose Marlboro or Camel and that the apparently mature woman chose differently from the younger, and the mature ladies chose Pall Mall, Capri, Benson & Hedges, Virginia Slims, Eve, and none in the older ladies group chose Marlboro or Camel.
I have been told that Altera Group has a new advertising and promotions company. Could this be the cause of the change in the Marlboro gifts and contests? Can anyone confirm this?
Do any of you think the actual answer we give on the daily contest will make a difference in the winning of a weekly prize?

For anyone struggling, these are some popular bands/artists known for creating house/club music or having songs turned into house music: David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 3OH!3, D-Devils, Basshunter, Calvin Harris, etc.
Frequently played in clubs besides the aforementioned house music (old and new songs alike): Rihanna, Sean Paul, T-Pain, Taio Cruz, Timbaland, Usher, The Wanted, Akon, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Shakira, Cascada, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Eminem, Flo Rida, Jennifer Lopez, Havana Brown, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Jay Sean, Lady Gaga, Kevin Rudolf, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, etc. HTH!
If anyone needs help, I can try to help...I club every so often (a few months ago it was weekly) and have a good idea of what gets a dance floor going. But since I sign onto SD randomly, I can't promise I'll see anything by a certain time.
I entered mostly rock and roll type songs. eg. Rednex, Kid Rock etc. Didn't think they would be looking for EDM type music. However, after reading Ichi's comments, it does appear that Marlboro may have shifted demographics and algorithms determining contest outcomes. OWTW was what got me hooked on Marlboro contests, but it appears those where the good ole days, and may never return. BTW only the 1st 5000 entries will be judged, so giddy up and get those entries in.
I did not use any of the following, but I believe they all would be appropriate.
Gigamesh — “It’s So Intense”
Ssion — “Warm Glove”
Cazwell – “Get My Money Back”
Streetlab featuring Noelle– “Take Care”
Ssion – “Psy-Chic”
AKA JK — “Someone Out There”
Holopaw — “The Art Teacher & the Little Stallion”
Julien Funk & The Painted Thief – “Look Me Up”
Chuck Buckett – “Fakelove”
Heloise & the Savoir Faire —“Downtown”
