The online voting takes place at http://promo.espn.go.com/espn/contests/budlight09/ and will continue until December 7th, 2009. Votes may be cast more than once and currently there is a tight race between all the entries.
As the inventor of the “Band-O-Beer”, I would like to dispel any rumors that alien technology was used in this design. And too, it has been suggested by some that my background is with black projects or off-budget CIA controlled developments, but that is also untrue. Additionally, I can personally guarantee that no ancient artifacts were used and no animals were harmed during this development project.
As the inventor of the “Band-O-Beer”, I am of course very proud of my accomplishment. Though I have yet to be notified, I would not be surprised to be offered, but I will decline, the Nobel prize for this work, and though it is a very nice gesture I cannot accept the undergarments that Britney Spears has offered.
In truth the only reward that I desire is for my fellow programmers, engineers, and IT professionals to acknowledge my work by casting their votes in the affirmative. Yes, there is nothing that I would find more satisfying than for everyone to go to http://promo.espn.go.com/espn/contests/budlight09/ and vote for my baby, the “Band-O-Beer”.
As a final note, I cannot confirm nor deny the existence of a somewhat spectacular and shocking Eater Egg in the video. I guess that if there was one then it would involve voting many times in order to find it.
