Hummer H2 Added To Contest Prize Pool – Now at $71,435

April 1, 2008 - Written by Gyutae Park  

I have some unbelievable news for all of you… Just when we thought the Craziest Internet Marketing Contest You’ve Ever Seen would end at a crazy $15,575, a sponsor has stepped up and offered an INSANE prize the day before the end of the contest that will increase the prize pool by over 5 times.

What’s the prize you ask?

hummer h2

A brand new 2008 H2 Hummer valued at over $56,000. It looks like some huge companies have been following the contest and reading the comments… Now I don’t know whether or not to use this for the current contest or to hold off until another record-breaking contest, but this is absolutely crazy. It makes me wish I wasn’t hosting so that I can win one for myself.

I can’t disclose the name of the sponsor right now because all of the legalities haven’t been taken care of yet. However, I can say that it is basically a done deal with a big-name Internet company that you have definitely heard of.

A more official announcement will be made tomorrow but my biggest suggestion to you right now is to perform as many contest clues as you can before Wednesday. You could have a free Hummer H2 show up in front of your door… :-O

Dude you have got to be kidding me. I said jokingly at the start of this contest that I wouldn’t mind a new hummer.

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

I suggested the H2 early on and it stuck on a bunch of the posts.

Gyutae could end all the speculation by confirming or denying the reality of this prize. Personally, I believe it’s for real and I’m going to blog about it.

Affiliate Confession on April 1st, 2008

I don’t know maybe it’s a joke, a $56,000 prize on the last day of the contest doesn’t seem like a smart thing for a sponsor to do.

I don’t exactly measure how reliable this information right now since it’s april fools month, but the way Mr Gyutae Park blogged it here sounds crazy. Park is not only going wild hahaha but truly going crazy with april month for crazy things.

 
Mr. Nice Guy on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Gyutae and his supposed sponsor could be real insane if they put this huge prize in the last day of the contest. Hmmmmm..this sounds fishy announcement Mr. Park.

 
Hafiz Dhanani on April 1st, 2008

Haven’t you people heard of april fools day?

 
 
wisdom on April 1st, 2008

Problem is this post is dated April 1st…. so I don’t know if its real or not….

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

If it were real it wouldn’t have been posted today.

So now I have to wonder, was extending this contest until after April fools, your evil plan to fool wisdom? Haha, jk.

 

This can’t be real… But damn – Think you win the prize for Best April 1st Prank!

Santosh P on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

As posted previously.. I feel this whole Contest was a planned april fools joke..

I wont be suprise if Gyutae breaks a news tomorrow as “HAPPY APRIL FOOL” and just has a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who were fooled..

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Doubt that will happen. Readers of this blog will turn on the sponsors and he will have them coming after him.

I’m the one that started the thread on the H2 for this contest. Good April Fools joke, very funny.

I see the comment count numbers are updated, you are going to include the March comment numbers, right?

Michael

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Almost forgot. Was I number one or did Andrew sneak in and beat me last night?

BTW you can tell it is an April Fools Joke because the total prize value did not change in the main contest image at the top of the page.

Affiliate Confession on April 1st, 2008

Why would Gyutae ask us to complete more clues to get more points and then pull the rug out from under us. That wouldn’t be cool, I don’t believe he would do that.

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

I meant the H2, not the whole contest. Sorry I didn’t elaborate, my bad.

April 1st…hm
And if this IS true, that will mess up my final prize pool prediction clue :)

I guessed way high, so I would be kinda close.

If this were an April fool’s joke, it would backfire, big time!

 
Affiliate Confession on April 1st, 2008

Hey, that kind of looks like Shoemoney’s Hummer. Of course, his would be used.

Eric Nagel on April 1st, 2008

To some readers, Shoemoney’s used Hummer be worth more than a new one

 
 
Tom Beaton on April 1st, 2008

That is gonna cost you a fair bit to ship over to the UK for me..

Affiliate Confession on April 1st, 2008

Don’t worry about that, the Hummer is going to be shipped to my house in Florida.

 
 
Mike on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Wow some people really like to spam the comments…

 
Eric Nagel on April 1st, 2008

Let me know when’s a good time to pick it up. Actually, shipping it to me may be cheaper than the gas to drive it back here.

 
Kotsengkuba on April 1st, 2008

April fools day! ;-)

Nice joke, hahahaha, I want a wine colored one.

 
Carol on April 1st, 2008

Can you trade it for a couple of nice Prius Hybrids? :D I would go broke filling that thing up.

Good Joke! I would not have thought about doing something like that on my blog. Cute idea!

Check out http://www.dailyblogtips.com! He just sold his blog site for $168,000 and announced it today.

 
elezend on April 1st, 2008

Can we exchange that for cash instead? I don’t think the shipping cost to Malaysia will be cheap. Maybe I could send that to a friend of mine if I won.

Flimjo on April 1st, 2008

IF this were true, and if I won it, I’d sell it. $56,000 in cash is nice.

 
Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

If you need any friends in the US I would be more then happy ….

Good luck to you. :-)

Michael

 
 
Jason on April 1st, 2008

Mind games.

 
Entrepreneur on April 1st, 2008

This is just like the Winningtheweb T-shirt promised to those who voted before and never got it. It’s a joke!

 
UtahLuxury.com on April 1st, 2008

I already own a hummer and let me tell you, I wouldn’t mind having another one of these especially since mine is an ’04.

We had a blizzard last year that stranded 400 kids at school overnight and my wife was stranded on the highway for 8 hours… that is, until I off-roaded passing everyone on the highway to get to her and my kids. Yes I would definitely get another one of these.

Flimjo on April 1st, 2008

The hummer is a bada$$ car.

Whoah. You have got to be kidding me. You HAVE TO INCLUDE THAT IN THIS CONTEST. ARE YOU NUTS????? That will be the biggest winner of all!

 
Flimjo on April 1st, 2008

WAIT A MINUTE. Is this an April Fool’s Joke????????????

 
Jay on April 1st, 2008

Just so you guys know, Gyutae’s entire contest was REALLY an April Fool’s joke. But I have to admit, it was a good marketing technique, I mean, look at how many people subscribed to his RSS Feeds and his mailing list! :P

Jay

Flimjo on April 1st, 2008

That’s not true. Heh, imagine the revolt that would ensue.

 
Andrew Pavelski on April 1st, 2008

I knew it was from the start, but wanted to play along with the joke by participating. A lot of people actually bought into this contest…

 
 
The Story Lady on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Wow that’s great.

Hey Gyutaze – I’ve got 2 questions to ask you, both of which would mean exposure for you. If you could drop me an email or message me via facebook that would be great

April Fool’s day, buddy

Andrew Pavelski on April 1st, 2008

One of the better contest prizes, but I’d still rather win that iPod touch!!!

 
Adam Pieniazek on April 1st, 2008

Though it’s for sure an April Fool’s joke, if I win I’m selling the H2. Any takers?

 
Jason on April 1st, 2008

Going to be tough holding out until tomorrow to see who won what. :-)

I hope for wtw’s sake that this is real. Can you imagine how many years people would be talking about this if it’s real? Guess if it’s not real, they’ll talk about it too only not in a good way.

Anyhow good luck to everyone!

Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

But since there is currently no exposure for the sponsors of the Hummer, it would be a loss for them.

Now if the Hummer is painted with their logo or something, made the national news, etc then it might turn a positive ROI for them.

Good luck with the contest.

Michael

 
 
DotDriven on April 1st, 2008

lol, good one. Though would be pretty damn awesome.

 
Klajdi Hena on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Dude, of course it’s a joke, I mean, common. On April’s fool day??

 
Michael Heindel on April 1st, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

What time will the winners be announced? I am anxious to see if I won anything.

Awesome contest and what a fun month is was.

Thanks for the fun stuff to do!

Michael

p.s. You got me hooked on Entrecard now.

 
Affiliate Confession on April 1st, 2008

Looking forward to the announcement of the winners tomorrow.

 
Jason on April 2nd, 2008

Seriously, if anyone is still confused; the contest is real, the hummer isn’t. Don’t need an official post from Gyutae to figure it out, lol.

Is this prize is part of April Fool ?…It’s working to me than :)

Dr. Teeth on April 17th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Oh my Gosh!
I was like dumb after seeing this, a Hummer; still can’t believe it.
Did it come across in the contest anyway or just a prank???
