This morning I received an email from the Hitchhiker’s people with good news for a lot of you. It’s the 42nd day of the year, and so Touchstone Pictures is using this as an opportunity to plug their upcoming Hitchhiker’s Guide movie with a contest. If you don’t understand why the 42nd day of the year is significant, then it’s a sure bet that this contest isn’t for you. Skip to the next story!
If you get it, then dust off your Zaphod costume and join the search for the biggest Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Fan. I have a feeling that this title might apply to a rather large percentage of our readers Get to it. Make Cinema Blend proud:
Are you a "hoopy frood" who really knows where your towel is? Have you ever made your own Sub-Etha Sens-O-Matic out of cardboard in an attempt to hitchhike to another planet? Do you have the answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything tattooed on your body? Do you ever pretend your car is powered by the Infinite Improbability Drive? Have you ever shoved a goldfish in your ear in an attempt to understand French?
If you answered yes to these questions then we are looking for you!
Today marks the 42nd day of the year, a day to reflect on "The Answer" provided by Deep Thought and to celebrate just how much of a Hitchhiker's fan you really are. We are looking for a few (6 actually - again 4 + 2) of the BIGGEST HITCHHIKER'S FANS IN THE GALAXY. Tell us why you became a fan and how you live your life in accordance with the most remarkable book ever to come out of the great publishing houses of Ursa Minor. Entries must be 250 words or less and can be accompanied by a photo documenting the degree of your "hoopiness."
Right now you are asking yourself, "Isn't being a Hitchhiker's fan a reward in itself? Why enter such a contest?" As Zaphod Beeblebrox once explained, "It's partly the curiosity, partly a sense of adventure, but mostly I think it's the fame . . ." That's right - be the envy of every Hitchhiker's fan when your detailed fan profile appears on the official site for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie.
So enter to win now - all entries must be in by February 25th. For official rules, visit the display department at your local planning office (and bring a flashlight). Email all entries to [email protected]. Entries must also include your:
