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!
