As part of my commitment to giving you free stuff and doing as little work as possible, I jumped at the chance to help out with a giveaway for Total Badass, Bob Ray’s critically-acclaimed documentary which brought “I took a year off to raise guinea pigs and do cocaine” into the lexicon. (We also had Bob on the Frotcast, and he was a great guest).
Anyhooters, if you’re interested in winning a signed DVD, here’s the rundown:
1. YOU NEED TO PROVE YOU’RE A TOTAL BADASS
If you’d like to play, you need to send in a photo, video, or story– written by yourself, of course — proving that you’re a “Total Badass” to Total_Badass@yahoo.com. This might be a photo of you climbing Mt. Everest, beating up Mike Tyson, shotgunning an entire keg of beer, or roller-skating with Tony Danza — doesn’t matter, just as long as it’s badass. You might also send in a video (bonus points for videos, folks) or a story, but be forewarned that stories relating your badassedness which do not include proof (in the form of a video or photo) will be very, very hard for us to take seriously: anyone could write up an anecdote about the time they kicked Jean-Claude Van Damme’s ass. We want to see it. [from our contest Co-Sponsor Scott at Examiner]
I also consider naked pictures “badass”, but that’s just me. The short answer is that you’ve got until Friday and we’ll announce the winners Monday, but here’s the rest:
2. YOUR BADASS-EDNESS WILL BE JUDGED
After you’ve sent in your entry (to Total_Badass@yahoo.com), the contest’s judges– me, Total Badass star Chad Holt, FilmDrunk.com’s Vince Mancini [That’s me! -Ed.], and Total Badass director Bob Ray– will spend the week going over the submissions. Over the weekend, each judge will select their own “winner” (read: badass), and that winner will receive a prize from Total Badass director Bob Ray.
3. BADASSES WILL BE SELECTED
Next Monday, each of us will be announcing our choice for “Total Badass”. One winner will be selected here at Examiner.com, another at FilmDrunk.com, and two by Bob Ray and Chad Holt (who will announce their winners on their Facebook pages/Twitter feeds).
4. BADASSES GET PRIZES
On Monday– when we announce our pick for “Total Badass”– if you are selected, we’ll get in touch with you and let you know you’ve won. Each winner (four in total) will receive an autographed DVD of Bob Ray’s Total Badass to show off to their friends.
5. SO, WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?
Get submittin’, Slappy. Send us your photos, videos, or stories (remember: it’s unlikely you’ll win if it’s just a story; photos that will back up your stories– particularly those involving toplessness– are heavily encouraged) and stay tuned to find out if you won.
To all the aspiring bloggers out there, notice how I just copy and pasted all of that from my co-sponsoring site? Take note, “co-sponsoring” is just one method in which we blog pros conserve energy, much like kangaroos hop and lizards bask in the sun.
