Just minutes ago, during the first intermission of the NHL game between the Vancouver Canucks and Colorado Avalanche, Darwin Head and two friends were to shoot pucks from centre ice in order to win 1, 3, or 4 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrids. Mr. Head shot first and popped enough goals to gain a car for himself. His first friend scored enough to put them over the top before the third friend even shot one puck. Each competitor won a new Malibu Hybrid and one member of the GM Place audience won a car as well… no effort required.
Darwin Head, of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, moved back to the opposite blue line to shoot 20 more pucks. He had just 24 seconds from his first release to the time the fifteenth puck had to cross the goal line. Darwin Head scored fifteen. Darwin Head won $1,000,000.
How much did the television and live audience learn about the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid? Next to nothing, although the oft-advertised draw was heavily advertised on TSN.ca for quite some time. Last year, the prize included Chevrolet Silverado’s, but the $1million was not won. By the way, the score in the game was 0-0 after 20 minutes, prompting uncomfirmed reports (in this post only) of free agent signings of Mr. Head and his buddies.
