So now for something completely ridiculous. Rudolph Foods, maker of fine pork rinds apparently loved by truck drivers the world over, has created a video submission contest. The prize? $1500. The task? Create a video about how much you love pork rinds, Duck Tape and ... your truck.
From the official press release:
"In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Rudolph Foods & Duck Brand® duct tape is hosting a "What's in Your Truck?" contest for a chance to win $1,500. To enter, simply catch yourself on video (even a 15 second video will do!) answering the question "3 Things I always have in my truck: a bag of pork rinds, a roll of Duck Tape, & [BLANK]."
My suggestion? Something MacGuyver-style. I mean, what couldn't you do with a bag of pork rinds and a roll of Duck Tape?! If you can fill 15 seconds with something awesome -- and, really, who couldn't, with this type of assignment -- you might just win.
But hurry; video entries must be submitted by Tuesday.
