Ok, maybe I’m not impartial, but I think I got robbed.
A few weeks ago, I blogged about how I entered the “Cumberland Farms #1 Fan” contest.
Here is my video to refresh your memory :
At the time, I believed I was only one of 2 entries. I checked all the hash tags that were required to enter the contest on instagram and youtube.
Well I was surprised to learn that I lost to this guy, who only posted his video yesterday (October 17th)! In the contest rules all videos had to be posted by October 4th, 2017.
Here is the guy I lost to:
Maybe I am partial, but come on! I had a least a little bit of production value in my video. Of course being from Rhode Island, I have to believe this guy is related to the judge. Maybe he is splitting MY coffees with one of the judges.
That is the thing with competitions where there is judging. If it was running, the fastest time wins. (People who know me, know I will never be winning or entering a race) So you are subjected to personal preference. And the judges preferred this two note song with words you can’t hear over my submission. Total bummer. I know in my heart I am Cumby’s #1 fan, I still am even after this horrific miscarriage of justice.
As far as competitions, I am one win and one loss on the year. I won the PVDonut Hascon tickets and lost the Cumby’s #1 Fan competition. The sad thing is I can’t even support PVDonuts for the next eight weeks because my wife is doing a 8 week diet and exercise program, and donuts aren’t exactly “clean eating”. But, the competition I lost…I will still be going to Cumby’s two times a day, supporting them. That coffee is my crack.
