Best Twelve (or fewer) Words Wins a Signed Cube Grenade

Daily Email Promo from Gapingvoid on Vimeo.Hola, Jason here (CEO of gapingvoid etc etc)… For all you gapingvoid newbies, you may not know that we publish a daily email every Tuesday–Saturday. It always contains one of Hugh’s cartoons with a little narrative and sometimes an exclusive deal on gapingvoid goodies.

We’ve been playing around with animation and the one above is a little eight-second promo that we want to use to call attention to the daily email. Although it works great as is, we’d like to add some copy to it, and so, Fearless Readers, we are going to have a little competition for the best copy as judged by us.

Here is how we are going to do it:

Simply suggest the copy to go with it, in twelve words or less. 

In other words, we need 12 words to go with the video, to explain what the story is.

The winner will get a free framed cube grenade of her choosing, signed and inscribed by Hugh (a $200 value) and if you have a blog or site, we’ll link back to it AND give you a mention on the actual video, etc.

Normally, this is the kind of things we’d do ourselves, but what the heck, sometimes “open source” is more fun for everybody.

Thanks, and looking forward!

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
