#ITCHYVIBE: VIBER LAUNCHES THE ITCHYWORMS STICKERS
The Itchyworms: Lost in Space stickers are somewhat like emoticons you see on other Internet-based messaging apps. But, these Viber stickers still more lovable and addicting to use, as they are more colorful, personalized and has the Pinoy touch in it!

Itchyworms revealed that these Lost in Space stickers or #ItchyVibe stickers are not only based from the album art of their latest released compilation album After All This Time. These are the bands' expressions that they actually use even before these stickers were born. 

The best of it all, Viber's Itchyworms: Lost in Space stickers pack is free to download and use. There are 40 different Itchyworms-inspired stickers to choose from and you can use them to simply show your Viber friends how you feel, w/o saying a word(in text).

The band confessed that they've been Viber users all this time. They use Viber to talk about their gigs, or vote for something that they need to decide as a group. According to the group, Viber has become Itchyworms main means of communication if their skeds won't meet. Group messaging in Viber has been an important tool for them. Unlike before, one of them needs to sms each member just to get a majority of votes or inputs ( for a critical decision they have to make) from the rest. With Viber's group messaging feature they can easily exchange ideas.

 So why did Viber Philippines choose Itchyworms?

We wanted a Filipino band to work with us on creating a sticker pack for barkadas. Itchyworms fit the brand and the stickers they shared were exactly what we were looking for–something fun that friends will use. They embody the spirit of fun, cool and easy going,” Viber Philippines Country Manager Crystal Lee said.


The Itchyworms are equally happy to partner with Viber. We're so proud to say that we are the first Pinoy band to get a Viber sticker pack, and it's really quite surreal. We're just so happy and excited for all the kids and the not-so-kids to start using the #ItchyVibe stickers,” Itchyworms co-lead vocalist Jugs Jugueta shared. 

“It was serendipity,” he added. Yes a perfect match was then made.

How did #ItchyVibe slash Itchyworms: Lost in Space stickers start?

While working on their album entitled AFTER ALL THIS TIME,  the band decided to use  fictional character on the cover named Astronaut June Galvez, which was designed by CJ De Silva-Ong. Then Itchyworms' in-house artist Dan Panaligan created an animated version of the astronaut to be used in the merchandise. “We bounced the idea to the Viber peeps and they liked our initial designs during the first meeting and the rest was history. The #ItchyVibe stickers show how the Itchyworms talk to each other. Now, we can share that to everyone and so do other barkadas.” 

As the cliche goes, the rest is history!
