Every week Toolmonger gets inundated with mail from various PR firms pushing the contest-of-the-week. And most of ’em end up in the circular file because seriously, do they really think Toolmongers are willing to shell out their personal info for a chance to possibly (maybe) score a $10 tool? But we got sucked in by this one. Why? It’s all about duct tape and the crazy crap you do with it.
Here’s the quick version: In order to promote their duct tape, the folks at Scotch/3M want you to send video or photos showing how you’ve solved the day with duct tape. To encourage you to do so, they trotted out their NASCAR crew guys to camp it up. It’s kinda humorous.
If you want to participate in the contest, head over to the Scotch Facebook page (link below). Their prize is a trip to a NASCAR event and a meet/greet with some crew members. But regardless, we’d love to hear your stories in comments. (Our prize is, of course, nothing but the satisfaction of reminding your fellow Toolmongers that yes, we do really do crazy crap with duct tape.) I have a couple such stories myself, and I might just share one on this week’s Tool Talk podcast.
