Our friends at Monkeyfinger have a Caesar giveaway happening on Vine, and the rules are super simple:
1. Make a yoyo-themed Vine (keep it PG)
2. Tag them on Vine (@monkeyfingeryoyo) and use hashtag #mfdyoyo
3. Post your entry by Jan. 31st.
The folks at Monkeyfinger are giving away a one-of-a-kind Caesar yoyo for Christmas, compete with some of their custom lube and Buff yoyo polish, all packaged in a custom wooden box. Neato!
Here are the instructions they sent on how to enter…contest ends on Dec. 30th. Be sure to visit their post on Facebook for full details on where to post your entries.
T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the lab, not a creature was stirring, not even the genetically spliced monkey crab.
The scientist had cleaned all their beakers with glee in the hopes that Saint Nick places Return Tops under kids tree.
Wishes for Geladas and Evil Yo’s were mailed to the Big Elf, but perhaps a special yo-yo would round out the collectors shelf.
A limited edition model loved by trick crafters, the artist proof Caesar, would send joy through the rafters.
Such a rare luxury, the demand would surely rise! So instead let’s give it away as a prize.
To win such a rarity there must be rules. Take a holiday story, rewrite it for you.
A few dozen words in the style of a classic could win you a Caesar, we might even wrap it.
With the understanding that Christmas is only a day away, you have until the 30th to send stories our way.
I Monkey in a Santa suit will read the entries over dinner and based on the quality, crown one story the winner.
