Keek Named Official App of the Janoskians World Tour

Creates Daily Video Series to Give Fans Behind-the-Scenes Peek

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 02, 2014) - Keek Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQX: KEEKF) announced today that it has partnered with teen sensation comedy troupe, The Janoskians, for the group's sold out multi-city Got Cake Tour, worldwide. Already avid users of the Keek video platform with over 3.2M combined followers amongst its members, The Janoskians are a group of Melbourne-born, Los Angeles-based boys -- brothers Beau, Jai, and Luke Brooks and buddies James Yammouni and Daniel "Skip" Sahyounie. They have racked up more than 200 million views across YouTube and boast one of the most interactive and engaging social presences, with a unique combination of songs, "mockumentaries," dares and skits, even leveraging their success into a recent major motion picture deal with industry heavyweight, Lions Gate.

Keek will be the exclusive partner and "official video app" of the 43-city Got Cake Tour 2014, which kicks off in the UK and Ireland, with stops in Germany, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Sweden and Norway, before hitting 28 stops in United States and Canada. The Janoskians and Keek are creating a daily behind-the-scenes series that will document the lives and experiences on tour, in the 36-second short video format that Keek is known for. The Janoskians will be sharing exclusive backstage peeks and tour-bus confessionals with the fans, as well as their trademark pranks, dares and comedic skits along the way. The behind-the-scenes series will be exclusive to Keek and will appear on the group's new official channel page http://www.keek.com/Janoskians

The partnership will also include a chance for both fans attending the shows and fans at home to win personalized prizes, including autographed photos, and clothing and merchandise from the group's Dirty Pig clothing line. At the end of each show, The Janoskians will randomly select a winner from fans following their new official group account @Janoskians on Keek. Some lucky winners in select cities will also win a chance to "Meet and Keek" with the group backstage.

"The Janoskians are a force and cultural phenomenon that is taking over the world," comments Lin Dai, CMO of Keek. "They are to teens today what Johnny Knoxville and Jackass were to teens ten years ago, except their fan base is 100% organic and born out of social media. Keek's unique 36-second format is perfect for capturing the guys' hilarious pranks and skits. We are super excited for the partnership and opportunity to support and help the group build an even greater global fan base."

"We've been using Keek for a long time now. It has become an important and easy-to-use part of our relationship with our fans, all over the world," said Beau Brooks.

The Janoskians are also recording artists under Republic Records, In North America and UK, and Sony Music in Australia and Eastern Europe, and the group has produced an eight-episode web series for MTV Australia titled The Janoskians: MTV Sessions. The Janoskians have a rabid fan base and recently in Times Square, New York, 20,000 fans arrived to meet the group and get autographs, forcing police to close off streets for several hours.
