Norton's best idea ever: Hack is Wack! contest, featuring Snoop Dogg
Yes, those are two of the most ridiculous sentences I've ever written at Download Squad, but whatcha gonna do? This isn't a situation I ever expected to encounter. Behold, the Hack is Wack! contest to raise cyber-crime awareness!
The contest, of course, is based on the old geek hit "Don't Copy That Floppy," the early 90's hit sponsored by the fine folks at the Software Publisher's Association. Hack is Wack! is different, of course. Hey, it's 2010 now, and contests like this are crowdsourced -- so take off your shirt, pull your pants down below your waistline, and get ready to drop some plates.
First prize is a Toshiba laptop and tickets to a Snoop show -- where you get to meet (wait for it) his management team and agent. Yeah. Fo'shizzle. Now on to their choice for spokesperson...
I love you, Snoop, but as much as I enjoy listening to you refer to yourself as the d-o-double-g, you seem like an odd fit for this project. Your rap sheet, after all, makes it appear like this could be some kind of nutty judge's idea of community service.
At any rate, someone please inform Paul Barman of this contest and make sure he enters immediately.
