What would you call 'Rock the Vote' in Europe?

The Weekly Calendar of Commissioners tells us that European Commissioner for Communication Margot Wallström is meeting with MTV Southern Europe to announce a campaign by MTV to raise awareness of the European Parliament elections among young people.

In the USA, MTV has worked closely with Rock the Vote. They host concerts, organise parties, register voters, and clearly have all sorts of bells and whistles online. Rock the Vote even appeared in a West Wing episode.*

Will Southern Europe see a ‘Rock the Vote’ campaign like in the US?

What would you call the campaign?

  • Serenade the Vote
  • Love the Vote
  • Macho the Vote
  • Sip-a-coffee-and-listen-to-accordion-while-considering-how-to-Approach the Vote
  • Buy the Vote

Later that same day, April 8th, Wallström will take part in a bloggers’ discussion “European Elections 2009: Yes I can” organised by the Bulgarian Branch of Café Babel.

* Continuing James’ West Wing analogies, would this make Margot Wallström the EU’s Donna Moss?
