‘Indiana Jones’ Contest Results!

Wow! I think it’s safe to say that you folks out there may have been a slight bit interested in the chance to win a copy of ‘Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures‘ on Blu-ray. We had a huge turnout for our contest last week. More than that, almost all of the entries were great. I wish that we had more copies of the prize to give away. Sadly, only one person can walk away a winner. Let’s find out which of our lucky readers that is.

As described in the original post, our challenge was to come up with a funny or clever caption for the following image:

Clearly, this was rich fodder for your hilarity.

I usually try to narrow down our contest results to ten Honorable Mentions. That was basically impossible this time. After reading through all of the submissions, I pulled out the following long list of no less than 60 favorites. Whew! Honestly, I could have named even more. This is after I limited my picks to one caption per person and cut a lot of perfectly good responses.

The Winner

With competition this fierce, how can I possibly choose just one winner? It sure wasn’t easy. In the end, I had to go with Dan J for this entry:

Bond 50, Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, Titanic, The Avengers all on Blu-ray in the same month? There goes my mortgage payment!

I think a lot of us Blu-ray fans can sympathize and agree. Hopefully, we at High-Def Digest can help ease Dan’s burden a little bit by taking one of those expensive releases off his list.

Congratulations to Dan J for winning ‘Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures’ on Blu-ray, and thanks to everyone else for participating! We had a blast with this contest.

    To all of our great readers who entered but did not ultimately win the Indiana Jones set (I wish we had more copies to give away), hang onto your fedoras. We have an EVEN BIGGER contest starting tomorrow morning. You’re gonna love it!

      Let me guess Bond 50? I am even more of a Bond fan then Indiana Jones, and I do not say that lightly. Unfortunately I will not be able to participate, but in no way is this a complaint!

        Your responses are visible. I read through every entry. I had to make some hard decisions when narrowing the results down to these Honorable Mentions. In my first pass, I had twice as many HMs. Sadly, I had to cut a lot of really good entries. Competition was tough this time.

        I can already see that the Bond 50 contest is going to be even more difficult!

          Awesome; thanks for letting me know – and wish me luck in the Bond contest! Well, if that’s allowed, of course.
