noregretsLast year, Contiki proudly became a prize provider for the YOMYOMF Network’s first season of Internet Icon, a competition show looking for the next big YouTube star, hosted by YouTuber Chester See, with head judge and YouTube star Ryan Higa at the helm.

One of the finalists of Internet Icon – The Fu Music – recently went on Contiki’s Sweet As South tour (read their Contiki interview here!) – and starting tomorrow, they’re launching their first video featuring Contiki and their new “furiginal” song, No Regrets.

We’re huge fans of The Fu Music and we hope that you visit their YouTube channel, subscribe, and check out this video tomorrow!  Also, they will have travel photos featured on!
