drum roll please...

wednesday night i got some of my good friends (court, the klutz, peeps, hatchel and the jerk), together for wine and drunken video making.

not that kind of drunken video making kids, get your mind out of the gutter
pervs.

the goal of the evening was simple, to choose the three winners of my cleveland's a plum t-shirt giveaway (courtesy of C.L.E Clothing Co), and to choose the one winner of my GAP born to fit jeans contest.

but who just wants to watch someone pick a name from a hat? not me.

so we decided to kick it up a notch. get serious. turn this shit into a REAL competition.

a shotgunning a can of miller high life type of competition to see who wins the cleveland's a plum t-shirts.

a who can eat a plum the fastest type of competition to see who won the GAP jeans.


and that's exactly what we did - each one of my five participating friends drew a name from the comment bowl, which you will see in the video, and they then competed against each other on behalf of the commenter they chose.

they did this twice, one for each giveaway, and let's just say it turned out quite comical - especially after 6 bottles of wine were finished.


so watch the video below to see if your name was picked as a finalist and then.... see if you won!



congrats to the winners, and i'll be emailing you today to get sizes and address information.

thanks for entering everyone, and if you're sad you didn't win a sweet t-shirt, head on over to the C.L.E Clothing Co website and pick one up for yourself.

have a great weekend all.

  8. Maybe next time the surrogate contests can shotgun a plum?

    I'm going to leave it up to you to figure out how exactly that would work.

  9. To my "handlers":

    Adam - My pleasure! I would also like to note that I drank my ENTIRE beer. Ahem.

    Ms. Salti - So sorry. I was really and truly eating the shit out of that plum. Unfortunately I was up against old Joey Chestnut Jr. and never stood a chance...

  15. FIrst of all I love that the bowl that held the names said "born to snack"

    Secondly, I wish I was there and could have partaken in the festivities!

    Thirdly, Wrigley was howling the entire time I played the video because he recognized your voice!

    and Fourthly, your snorting made me smile, and made my day:)
