Michigan Job Hunters Offered $500 for Aerial “Pornography”
With Michigan’s unemployment rate at 15.6% — the highest since 1983 — two men have “launched” a contest to reward the state’s jobless for scanning the skies this Saturday, in search of … pornography.
“Rome had bread and circuses to help citizens forget their troubles. We’re offering ‘pornography’ — and a prize worth $500. It all happens this Saturday, September 12, in Ann Arbor, before the University of Michigan football game,” said David E. Perry, co-author of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0.
What exactly is going to happen?
“We’re still getting clearance from Governor Granholm’s office and will release details as soon as we can,” said Kevin Donlin, contributing co-author of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0.
“But we can say that something will happen in the sky above U-M Stadium between 1:00 and 2:30 on Saturday afternoon, an unnatural act that may offend some. And we’re offering $500 in cash and prizes to the person who captures the most compelling video of the aerial event and posts it on Youtube,” said Donlin.
But why pornography?
“Because the unemployment situation in Michigan is truly obscene. Also, if you’re job hunting and you look above U-M Stadium between 1:00 and 2:30 this Saturday, you’ll know it when you see it,” said Donlin.
The $500-value prize package includes the following: $222 cash, a copy of the Guerrilla Job Search Home Study Course ($199 value), a copy of the Guerrilla Job Search System DVD ($29 value), and a copy of the new Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0 book, signed by the authors ($50 value).
How can people enter?
“Get to Ann Arbor or tell your friends to go, this Saturday, September 12. Watch the sky above U-M Stadium between 1:00 and 2:30 for a flying object that’s designed to put Michigan back to work. Capture the object on video and upload it to Youtube. Then, tell us about your video by posting a comment to this blog posting. Entries must be received by midnight, Sunday, September 13, 2009. The most compelling video entry will be awarded $500 in cash and prizes at 12:00 noon on Monday, September 14, 2009. All entries will receive a free copy of the Guerrilla Job Search Secrets audio,” said Donlin.
