XMAS in July Promo Video: Pay Attention

OK, here’s a ridiculous promo video that seemed like a good idea about 8 days ago. It turned out to be absurd and just a bunch of footage of me running around in 100 degree weather dressed up like Santa. Instead of just trashing this embarrassment, I’m choosing to post it and have a little fun with it. Self-deprecation never hurt anyone.

There’s a contest involved with this video which requires you to pay attention and get really sick of me when all is said and done. A sweet prize awaits! First of all, 5 random comments to this post get a tasty prize. Five $10.00 giftcards to Chipotle are up for grabs to the commenters. I’ll announce winners tomorrow.

The first person to email me… (GrubGrade at Gmail dot com) with the correct answers to the 10 questions below, gets a bunch of prizes. A $10.00 Wendy’s Gift Card, a $10.00 McDonald’s Gift Card, a $10.00 Domino’s Pizza Gift Card, a Free Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich and a Free Chick-fil-A Milkshake.

OK here are the questions… hope you paid attention:

  • What kind of beer did I pull from the fridge?
  • What kind of peanut butter was I eating?
  • From the Santa montage, in what scene was I completely missing my Santa beard?
  • Am I right-footed or left-footed?
  • What magazine did I have in bed?
  • How many total basketball shots did I make?
  • What videogame system was I playing?
  • Out of the 7 companies providing prizes, which restaurant was missing from product placement?
  • What kind of beer did I have in the hot tub?
  • What is the make of the car I’m driving?

Good luck! Β More free stuff coming tomorrow night!

UPDATE: We have a winner… getting all 10 questions answered correctly: Blake Benson at 5:33pm eastern.

**Remember, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win 1 of 5 $10.00 Chipotle giftcards. Β Winners will be announced tomorrow along with more free grub giveaways! Β Good luck!**

    Hmm, the troubling paradox of being attracted by good odds while at the same time worsening the odds by playing… Well anyway here’s my comment.
