at least two years, in malls around Sacramento, a brand new car has
been parked next to some long tables with entry blanks. Trendwest,
a vacation time-share company offers a new car as the grand prize in their
contest as an incentive to fill out and submit a short survey. This
their telemarketers loaded up with new contacts.
About 5 months ago I saw that they had posted a simple 8x11 sheet of paper with a winner.
"I can do better than that", I thought.
It took a while to actually execute, but here is what I came up with:
|I went down to Sunrise Mall in Sacramento first. I thought they had a give-away there. You can see the nice plastic box-frame I prepared for the print-out.|
|Walter and I wandered around the mall on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We couldn't find the car give-away I was about to win.|
make absolutely sure, I asked Mall Information. There was no car here.
After work I drove out to the new Roseville mall, but to my dismay, there was no car giveaway there either!
|Finally I went to Arden Fair Mall, where I knew a car was on display. I just placed the picture box on the counter next to this Firebird.|
there I went to Downtown plaza, home of the infamous Terrace
Cafe prank. I stood the plastic frame up on the left end of the
table, in front of this Ford Expedition.
Hopefully these two fake signs will stay up through the holiday weekend & all of my old friends from high school will see it.
I actually envision mine in green for some reason...contact Rob
