Only the legendary need apply

Are legends born, or made?

To find out Heineken, as part of its latest global campaign ‘Voyage', is undertaking it's most daring experiment yet.

It is testing what men are truly made of when taken out of their daily lives and dropped into the great unknown.

Imagine the situation. You are a highly social character, out-going and confident. You get chosen to go on a legendary adventure – something you have never done before - a new experience that will test your resourcefulness.

But then you find yourself in the freezing wilderness of Alaska – alone on a glacier, with nothing but a giant life-ring, a tuxedo and a plane ticket to get you home – and the airport is hundreds of miles away.

This is ‘Voyage', a new campaign from Heineken that takes different men from across the world and drops them in remote global locations with nothing but the most basic of supplies and directions. The result is ‘Dropped' - a series of episodic adventures following our intrepid explorers on their legendary travel experience.

Every ‘Dropped' travel adventure will be tailored towards the character of its main protagonist - forcing them to discover their own limits and conquer their fears. Across four continents they'll face a multitude of challenges - tough terrain, curious locals and unusual modes of transport. As the Dropped episodes unfold, so the social experiment will come to life, with viewers of each voyage able to follow how each traveller fares through a series of diary entries and journey updates.

Their final destination? Home. Will they make it? The answer lies within each adventurer – the outcome of each Dropped encounter is completely unscripted, with the participants desire to overcome the challenges the only measurement for success. For all we know legends aren't made, they're Dropped.

Dropped will be broadcast on the Heineken Dropped YouTube channel. Here, viewers will be able to follow each ‘Dropped' voyage, access documentary-style content and also contribute their own video entries to the ‘casting couch' - with the ultimate chance of partaking in their own legendary travel adventure.

Consumers who buy special packs of Heineken will be able to redeem a code and play an online game that tests their own navigation skills as they embark on a digital voyage. A lucky few will win their own legendary travel experience, with prizes on offer to include adrenalin filled travel adventures and perhaps the ultimate adventurer's discipline - space-training.
