YTMND Contest Winner
Posted on Friday, March 24 @ 18:32:37 Eastern by dUKEWednesday night, fueled by whisky and accompanied by a life-size cardboard cutout of Sean Connery, the GR staff sat down to judge the winners of our YTMND contest. There were over 1,000 entries. Do you have any idea what it is like to sit down and view 1,000 YTMND's in a row? It's not pretty. It's not good for your mental health. And it does not give one hope for the future of humanity. It does, however, give one an enormous hangover and an unidentified stain on the carpet.
In an attempt to apply the precepts of SCIENCE to such an undertaking, we invented an arbitrary anti-cliche point system that we applied randomly. Points were subtracted for use of Brian Peppers, Mullet Man, Conan O' Brian, Barrel Rolls, Kahn!, and especially Nigga Stole My Bike. On the other hand, an extra point was awarded to any entry that used the retarded default "3D" text.
The variety of entries was astonishing, although some people were simply too stupid to enter proper submissions. Plenty of them, like this, had nothing whatsoever to do with gaming. And people, let me make this clear, Chuck Norris is not a video game. Linking this one is sure to get a Fatwa declared against GR. Well another one anyway. And this one just annoyed the sh*t out of us.
In the end, however, there could be only one. Plus the whisky bottle was empty. Drumroll please....
The way the story was told in just a few stills was brilliant. Plus the facial expressions totally cracked us up. You get a PSP.
We'd also like to congratulate those others who made some great ones, although we won't be sending you anything. In no particular order, these honorable mentions managed to make the whole process survivable:
