We receive a lot of strange emails here at Reject HQ. Many of them are independent “filmmakers” sending in their clip reels, trailers and offers of screeners and zj’s (we still don’t know what those are) in exchange for some coverage. We try to tell them that you don’t listen to us, but they still send them anyway. Occasionally we do get something interesting — or in this case, something downright special. Here today in our inbox we found a contest that involves the concepts of “Cash for Gold” and Mr. T. Finally, someone has thought to combine the racket that is saving our economy with the man who brought mohawks and bling to the mainstream. Check out the completely ridiculous details after the jump.
Here now is the solid gold pitch that we received:
Gold Promise, a new mail-in gold and jewelry buying business, is hosting a video contest where the winner will have the chance to appear in the company’s next TV commercial alongside Mr. T. The grand prize winner will receive a first-class trip to L.A. where the spot will be filmed. The prize also includes a three-night hotel stay, pocket money and a Gold Promise customized Flip Video camera. Nine runners up will receive a personalized Mr. T autograph keepsake and a Gold Promise customized Flip Video camera.
To enter, just make a short video telling Mr. T what he should do next with the money he made selling his gold to Gold Promise. For full contest details and to upload your video, visit www.goldpromise.com/contest. Why not break out the video camera after Thanksgiving dinner and create something unique? You might just find yourself starring in a commercial with Mr. T in 2011!
I pity the fool who doesn’t enter this contest right now…
