    It's already a good bet more than a couple people will enter the contest by sending a video of them mercilessly ranting on how the TF movie is (metaphor for inner youth sexual abuse here) and how Michael Bay should (physically impossible activity). It would be be even more hilarious if one of them won, but I doubt that's what they're going for. :)

    Ebay:
    The criteria (quoted from website):
    Maybe you have the entire collection of Transformers action figures in a climate-controlled case. Maybe you quote Optimus Prime in everyday conversation. Or maybe you and your friends like to act out scenes from the Transformers cartoons in suits made of aluminum foil and popsicle sticks.

    Whatever it is, film it and then submit your video to Yahoo starting March 26. Our expert judges will review the videos and pick three true Fanaticons on May 14.

    The prizes (quoted from website):
    Three winners (each with a guest) will get a trip to ILM Studios, the digital masterminds behind TRANSFORMERS, in San Rafael, Calif.

    * Watch as they put the finishing touches on TRANSFORMERS.
    * Meet the people who will bring Optimus Prime to lifeā€¦again.
    * Prize package for airfare, accommodations and meals.


    So fellow TFW2005 fans, get out there and film, get your video submitted! Show the powers that be that the FANATICONS bleed TFW2005!!

    Sounds great! I've got some fantastic ideas!

    Oh, wait, I'm not American. So there's yet another competition I can't enter. Hooray.

    It'd be hilarious if someone that totally hates everything they've seen about the movie so far wins and just goes in to give them hell

    You guys really don't think anyone actually wins these things? They just pick someone the studio or a worker there knows and make him or her post a blog on 'how things were so awesome at ILM'.

    It's just like the quote contest they had. What ever happened to "do a barrel roll"? Instead, all the names and quotes were replaced with something else at the last day -> "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings".

    They do these sort of things only as a market/target/audience analysis.

    ...uhh, the official rules for that contest stated that the fans would vote for the top 25(?) and the everything else would be handled by the ones making the film itself.

    Taken from the from the official rules posted when the contest was first started.
    So the top 30 out of 100 *were* voted on by fans but the *movie makers* had the final say in what gets added. It's to prevent stupid and inane lines, despite how comical they may be in context, from entering the script.

    *MOST* of these types of contests actually have rules that state that anyone involved with or related to, the company running the contest or the ones providing the rewards can not be allowed to even enter. So yes, I'm sure 'real' people will win this contest and take a tour of ILM. If not then the people who run this contest could be open for a class action lawsuit. They don't have to trick people into providing a 'market analysis'.

    Exactly. It's simply too easy of a lawsuit otherwise.

    considering that the quote contest was open to the entire internet, from submission to voting, of course there were going to be people flooding the ballot box going "lol im gonna make this movie suck with a dumb line"

    "these pretzels are making me thirsty" anybody?
