WARNING: The video above is actually kinda violent! Think CrackBerry meets Fear Factor meets Jackass the Movie. Don't watch it unless you're ok with those of kinds of things. Seriously. There, you've been warned. Now enjoy the show! **
Before we began revealing the winners of the What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? Contest last week I wrote a blog post letting everyone know just how TOUGH a task it was for the judging team to narrow over 3,000 entries down to just ten winners (and remember, we didn't order the top ten - they're all winners and once we've posted on every Storm-earning entry you'll be able to vote for your favorite). In the end, we split the entries up into five categories of themes to ensure variety and a fair chance for all types of entries to win, and then picked the top two from each category that really caught our attention. We already showed you one winning entry that fell under the heading of embarrasment and torture via Kevin Vlk's 20 Mile CrackBerry Gump Run through Chicago. Today's video brings forth the second winner in this category, with an emphasis on the torture side of the equation. Enter Travis Carrol's contest submission:
What would I do to win a BlackBerry Storm? I would get tied up with arms and legs extended wearing only small shorts and let 10 people, each with 10 paintballs shoot at me all at the same time for 10 seconds with CrackBerry.com written across my chest!! That's 100 paintballs!!!! For safety reasons (besides the wearing a cup) I will have on paintball certified goggles that protect my eyes nose mouth and ears. (the only real way to get hurt by a paintball is to be shot in the eye)...so it's totally safe and very exciting for people to see!! Thanks for taking the time to read my submission and I look forward to reading crackberry.com EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Believe it or not, Travis wasn't the only contestant to volunteer getting shot by a proverbial storm of paintballs. But the little details in Travis' entry sold the judges (plus he convinced us this craziness would be safe), and well... we just really wanted to see what this would look like when all was said and done. Watch the video. It all went down Thursday evening, November 13th. And it is INSANE.
Well Deserved Travis! You have earned your free BlackBerry Storm. You are nuts! I'm not sure anybody after watching this video would even consider doing what you just did in that video. Ouch!
Travis had a big crew on hand to help him carry out his To Do, and even had his video guy help edit things up for public consumption. BIG THANKS go to everyone who participated and helped Travis win his Storm.
So what do you think CrackBerry Nation? Is the craziest entry yet? The voting will come at the end, but be sure to post your thoughts in the comments (KEEP THE COMMENTS CLEAN AND FRIENDLY FOLKS!).
