To realize their vision, representatives from KLM and Heineken visited Shanghai, Cape Town, Rio, Los Angeles and Oslo.

Their goal to find bold people:

When people ordered a Heineken those representatives asked them if they wanted an orange experience. The few that accepted got an orange outfit and were asked to sing “Oranje Boven”(a classic Dutch song) in front of everyone in the bar. If they were brave enough to do it they were immediately taken to the airport stopping by their home for some luggage and to pick up a friend. It was only then they were told of their destination – Amsterdam!

When the winners arrived in Amsterdam the King’s Day celebrations were in full swing. They got to enjoy a bike tour of the city, play traditional King’s day games and even met DJ Hardwell, the number one DJ in the world.
