What Would You Do for a Palm Pre Contest Winning Entries

By Kevin Michaluk on 3 Jun 2009 09:52 am EDT

The Palm Pre is set to go on sale in limited quantities this Saturday morning in the US, and as you might expect, the prejects (errr.. preverts... what do we call them again?!) over at our sibling site PreCentral.net are getting pretty damn excited for its release.

Following up on the success of our What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? contest, PreCentral held a WWYD For a Palm Pre? contest and this week the five winning entries are being posted for all to see. The first three winning videos are already posted, with two more to come this Thursday and Friday. 

Winning Entry #1: Palm Pre Tattoo - It looks like our friend TJ Huling, who got a life-size BlackBerry Storm tattoo, now has some company in the crazy smartphone fan department. You can watch Lou get inked in the video above. Nice Tat!

Winning Entry #2: Gorilla Attorney - Christopher, an actual attorney, decided he would put his dignity (and perhaps his job?!) on the line by heading to the courtroom dressed as a gorilla for the day. Funny.

Winning Entry #3: Death by Curry - The phaal curry served at the Brick Lane Curry House is pretty much the spiciest food served in a restaurant anywhere. It comes with its own waiver form and people eating have been known to pass out or get nose bleeds. So Mike figured he'd put his taste buds on the line for a free Palm Pre!

You can click the links in the paragraphs above to check out the first three winning entries in detial and keep it tuned to PreCentral.net to to see the next two winners.



Can you say WT! (Hint: white tra....)

the one and only M

what if the pre is a bust? then he'll feel like the guy with the storm tattoo. WWYD for a Tour contest??


Gorilla Attorney so far the BEST of the what would you do stuff IMHO.


that guy is an idiot, what would i do for a pre? i would go in with a shotgun and rob them of it.


So, let me get this straight...

This guy (most likely) PAID for a VERY UGLY tattoo, to WIN a CRAPPY phone? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Why..... Why would you tattoo anything like that on your arm? What a fool, lol.


I would do nothing at all. I will take one for free that's about it.


Guy is out of control. What a dork!


Copy cat from the Storm contest....There both stupid!

Accidental Post

Straight Copycat from the Storm Winner......Should have Judged by originallity


Wow! I'm impressed with the tat. That's definitely worthy of a free phone!


OMG, people still use Palm's really?? Uuggh, 1999 called they want their obsolete,useless, chunky PDA's back!

The Consigliere

Gorilla Attorney by far is the best, that's risking a lot, your job, contempt of court. I mean I've seen some pretty stupid tattoos & getting a phone inked definitely ranks up there, I mean, that's it huh? You're only going to use the Palm Pre from now on, because you'll look even more stupid with that tattoo while using another type of phone!


I love my phone.. but never in a million years would I tattoo it on my body!!!!!


I wonder what this person would do for a Klondike Bar?


I wonder if any of you current or former Palm users, like myself have seen or handle the Pre. I think it's features are very nice and impressive. However, IMO the phone is cheaply made. It feels delicate and the slider keyboard does not feel very sturdy. I got the feeling that with much use like other sliders, it will break very easy. I was looking forward to purchasing it for personal use, but the non-Treo design has turned me off.


What a schmuck ... what he spend $350 - $400 on that tattoo ... go buy a phone instead and a BlackBerry at that ... dumba$$

Tommy G-Rubz

300??? If he paid more than 1-150 then he got ripped off!

People like that make me wish I didn't have tattoos. He should get a sweet tribal band on the other arm so he can be SUPER bad-ass...

What a tool....


And...ummm...if you are going to get one, make sure it has meaning. I am not really sure what to think...


what a fucking idiot. i bet that'll look real nice in 5 years when nobody even cares about that phone anymore. i hope this moron never has kids.


I can't stand those pre fanatics the phone isn't even out yet. he probably payed 180 dollars for that tattoo the phone is 199 at bestbuy wtf, and in 5 months there will be a better phone


Yeah, good luck with that one. I guarantee that when you show up to court in a gorilla costume the presiding judge will recommend that you have a hearing before the State Bar's Character and Fitness Committee.

Palm Tattoo: how original.


That one guy that got a storm tatted on his leg in order to win a storm? I was wondering if there was someone out there that would be that dumb again. Granted at least the storm is a sweet phone, but still the cost of the tat is just about the price of the phone, why not just wait in line for the phone? That way 10 years from now when we talk out of chips in our head he doesn't look like a fool with a pre-historic device on his arm.


Hey boss if i was you i would have done some pushs up before i posted a video of me makeing one of the dummest mistake of my life.fucking tool i hope you sell your phone to get that tatoo removed .


It will be great when the guy with the tatoo realizes the phone is a piece of crap. I am judging this on BGR's review


I thin this guy still lives at home with is parents. Did anyone notice the 22nd and 33rd place ribbons on the mantle? Why would you get any tattoo that does not have any personal meaning? for the cost of the tat he could have purchased the phone. Did you catch how happy he was at the end? Giving shout outs to his peeps like he won an award.


I really hope the first winner really really likes the Palm Pre... As a guy with about 50+ hours of tattoo work I will say that was the wonkiest tattoo ever! The perspective was horrendous and it was just a very poorly done tat. Unfortunately because it's black and red it's going to suck trying to cover it up.

I never really understood people that would permanently altering their body for something like a phone that will be obsolete in a year.


250 for the tat. priceless.




That guy is going to pull some major chicks with that tattoo.



you'll see a post from this guy on fmylife.com sooner or later
