We'll toss a slightly NSFW (Not Safe For Work) tag on this post just to cover our butts, but in reality this winning entry is one you should be showing to all of your co-workers...
Our first winner in the What Would You do for a BlackBerry Storm? Contest portrayed extreme brand loyalty via a BlackBerry Storm tattoo and our second winner creatively destroyed his old phone to make way for the Storm by Sawing his Palm Treo in half. Our next two winners come from the Howard Stern/Paris Hilton-inspired category we like to call Now That's HOT!
Two winners you ask? Yeah, that's right. Priscilla and Lauren's entry caught us judges by surprise:
This is kind of a joint entry because me and my friend both want a BlackBerry Storm. So we agreed we would pudding wrestle in the middle of Time Square, NYC.
I re-read through the contest rules (which I wrote) and no where did I say you couldn't submit a joint entry! Very clever girls, very clever. I also did a quick search to see if Pudding Wrestling in Time Square for a Free BlackBerry Storm was illegal, and my results turned up negative (though to be honest I didn't search all that hard and gave up looking after 47 seconds).
I asked Priscilla how they arrived at the idea and here's what she had to say:
We both really love our BlackBerrys and we made all our friends get them because we love the BBM feature. Then when I went on CrackBerry I saw the contest and thought it looked awesome, so of course I called my other half and asked what crazy idea she could think of. We wanted to do something that shows our wild side but also how much we love BlackBerrys, CrackBerry.com, and of course NYC =)
Mission accomplished. Not only did you both show off your wild sides and love for NY, BB, and CB, but you've also each won a BlackBerry Storm! Well deserved!
Priscilla and Lauren wanted to give a shout out and thanks to Devin at Illegit NYC, a local New York designer, for supplying their Pudding Wrestling clothes (maybe we should get Devin working on some designer CrackBerry gear for the next time we do this!). You can check out a bunch of photos from the event after the jump and view all of the winning entries (6 more videos to come...then we'll let you vote one which ones are the best!) on our Storm Contest page!
