Competition CLOSED: Win an XBox 360 and Rockband Starter Kit with M&Ms and Culch.ie
***Competition Closed. Congrats to Linda Callaghan***
We have a bit of an awesome competition for you.
A few weeks back we were invited into M&Ms HQ to see their new ad. If you haven’t caught it on the tellybox yet, then the basic idea behind it is that Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue and Green are going head-to-head in an election campaign where the public can vote for their favourite ‘candydate’ (here and here if you’re interested) and as an added bonus, all voters are entered into a draw for a chance to win a trip to New York to attend the election party of the winning M&M. Cool? We think so.
In what’s being described as ‘Ireland’s first electronic polling booth’ voting is possible 24/7 via the M&Ms website.It’s the latest brand to set about personifying its wares, with Green being described as ‘not afraid to use her female charms to get what she wants’ and Orange pegged as ‘somewhat nervous’ and ‘in desperate need of some support’. But for an added twist, M&Ms invited some bloggers to give election speeches on behalf of each candydate on the night (Culch was Red) and we got to personify the choccy goodness ourselves.
It was a lot of fun and the M&Ms were flowing, but we didn’t forget you lot and M&Ms are very kindly offering you the chance to win an X-box 360 and Rockband Starter Kit to celebrate the campaign.
Your job is simple. We want you to email your answer to the following question to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday June 3rd.
Which of the following colours is an M&M candydate?
Good luck, and cast a vote in the election for a chance at that New York trip too.
