First of, huge happy birthday to Mike Shinoda! May you receive lots of joy and happiness on your day! This is now the 4th year that we’re celebrating Mike’s birthday, our 3rd year doing a project for him. If anyone remembers the first year MSC celebrated Mike’s birthday in 2010 we wanted to make his birthday a trending topic, it was also his first birthday when he was on Twitter. It was such a success we had many celebrities retweet our hashtags and we even got it to trend worldwide! At the time it was quite difficult for us to get a trending topic, especially since we just launched the site and there weren’t that many Linkin Park fans on Twitter! If I remember correctly, Linkin Park weren’t even on Twitter at the time it was known as @lpunderground. But we got it to trend, with many retweets from exceptional people. The next year in 2011 we hosted our first birthday project, which was successful! A few days later, our good friend Kate managed to send some of these submissions to Mike at the Los Angeles concert. In 2012 we again hosted a birthday project for Mike, it very successful, much more entries than last time! If I remember correctly even the hashtag trended that day a few times throughout the day!

This year we decided to something different, we asked fans to take a picture of themselves holding a sign that say “Happy Birthday Mike Shinoda” in their own language. To show all the fans from around the world, honestly didn’t expect to receive this many. But in total there were over 180 participants, (shout out to Wretches and Kings and Linkin Park Peru), 50 countries were represented in this video and “happy birthday” was written in 30 different languages! We’re quite pleased with the outcome! Now, presenting the video in HD:

THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE THAT PARTICIPATED. Hope we didn’t miss anyone. There were a few entries that had issues. We’ll be posting all the pictures up soon (as soon as we resize!) for all to view individually. Also, sorry for this being so late! We had some major technical difficulties. Be sure to share the video as well! Using this link: http://mikeshinodaclan.com/birthdayproject2013/ or this one: http://youtu.be/2HoPwoX1Qmk. And tweet #HappyBirthdayMikeShinoda in your tweets!

One more thing I’d like to mention, Linkin Park Fan Corner have also done a birthday project for Mike, please be sure to check that out as well!
