Rolling Stone Made Soundproof Rock Posters So Kids Can Jam in Their Bedrooms in Peace

Acoustic foam, coated with fireproof resin and fiberglass

Annoying your parents by blasting—or attempting to play—rock music is a tradition going back decades. But now, Rolling Stone is waging peace between kids and their parents, thanks to a campaign that turns rock posters into soundproofing material. 

Rolling Stone Brasil and Y&R Brazil (part of VMLY&R Group) have created "Soundproof Posters," which is exactly what they are. They're made of acoustic foam, and coated with fireproof resin and fiberglass. And for young people learning to play the guitar in their bedrooms, they'll help muffle the sound and prevent headaches among the older occupants of the home. 

Here's a gallery of the posters: 

"Two things happen when teenagers decide to learn the guitar: They will annoy neighbors, parents and siblings, and they will hang band posters on the wall. So what if the latter helped with the former?" the agency says. 

The posters were made by Focus Cinematography, which we're told used a new production technique developed specifically for the project. 

Instagram, a favorite platform for guitar selfie videos, was a focal point of the accompanying digital campaign. Wanna-be rock stars could post their best riffs using the hashtag #SoundproofPoster for a chance to win a set of four posters.
