As part of their ongoing ‘Honda Loves You Back‘ campaign, Honda loved back up and coming LA-band Monsters Calling Home by surprising them with an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The band – who had shot a video for ‘Fight to Keep‘ completely inside their own Honda Accord, CR-V and Fit back in the spring – had been told that they would get a chance to play in front of several hundred Honda executives.
After they had set up their instruments on stage they were told that an important meeting had gone late and there would be no performance. At the request of the event coordinator, the band agrees to perform one song anyway and they take the stage. Soon they are interrupted and the truth is revealed. There never really was a concert for executives and the band will instead be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live just across the street.
What they had thought was their worst gig ever, turned into a fantastic opportunity for the band.
