NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Malibu is bringing a little bit of sunshine to the world this summer through a partnership with Platinum Selling American DJ and producer Dillon Francis and over 30 Malibu Ambassadors from seven different countries for the launch of #TheCoconutChallenge. Media personalities and creators such as comedian Hannah Stocking, singer and radio presenter Fleur East, and creative director Ashley Banjo will kick off #TheCoconutChallenge by performing The Coconut Nut Malibu Remix dance moves, created by renowned choreographer Matt Steffanina.

“#TheCoconutChallenge represents summer fun and the spirit of being together,” said Johan Radojewski, Vice President of Global Marketing for Malibu at The Absolut Company. “The partnership of our ambassadors from across the globe and the talents of Dillon Francis gives us the opportunity to share a little bit of sunshine.”

And that’s not all! Fans who share their dance moves to the beat of The Coconut Nut Malibu Remix and tag their posts with #TheCoconutChallenge could be featured in Dillon’s crowdsourced music video, scheduled to premiere later this summer.

“The Coconut Nut is a perfect lighthearted anthem for summer vibes, so I hope my new Malibu remix and #TheCoconutChallenge can provide a moment of reprieve while everything in the world still seems so uncertain,” said Dillon Francis.
