Hello, boys and girls. Did Santa bring you all the Blu-rays you wanted for Christmas? What, no? Well, let’s see if we can fix that by offering you the chance to win ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ on Blu-ray. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea? I thought so! Read on after the break for all the instructions on how to enter.
First things first, congratulations to “Random Commenter” for winning our pre-contest contest by correctly guessing the title of the disc we’d be giving away. You’ve already won our first copy.
The rest of you, fret not. Thanks to our friends at Dolby Labs, we have two additional copies of ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ to also give away. Each is a 2-disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy combo pack, so you’ll be covered no matter how or where you (or your kids) want to watch the movie. In his review of the Blu-ray, Aaron rated the disc with perfect 5-star scores for both its stunning video and rocking Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack. Here’s a short featurette about how that soundtrack was created:
Now then, how do you win? That’s easy. We’re going to do this one as a haiku contest. (Yes, I know that kung fu is Chinese and haiku is Japanese, but go with it anyway.) To win the prize, you must come up with a creative ‘Kung Fu Panda’-themed haiku in the standard 5-7-5 format. That means 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and another 5 syllables in the third line. For example:
Fat bear leaps through air
With athletic grace. Too bad
Gravity’s a bitch
The winners will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever responses we enjoy the most. As mentioned earlier, we have two copies of the Blu-ray to give away.
Entries are limited to 10 haikus per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality.
This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.
The deadline for entry is this Friday, December 30th. The winner will be announced next week. Good luck, everyone!
