Popular music magazine Billboard partnered with Ogilvy & Mather Brazil to create a vending machine that dispenses a copy to a ‘real’ fan of the artist on the magazine cover.

The Fan Check Machine determines if you’re a real fan of the artist on the cover by checking if there are more than 20 songs by the musician in your iPhone.

People don’t even need an app to have their iPhone checked. They can just plug it into the Fan Check Machine and the machine will search through the phone. If the iPhone owner has more than 20 songs of the artist on the magazine cover, the machine dispenses a free copy of the mag.


Watch the promotional video of the Fan Check Machine below.
