So today (or yesterday - one of those - but since this is Twitarded and as you know we're perpetually late, it's probably the latter...) Summit Entertainment announced the winner of the New Moon "Be A Part of the Movie" contest. We knew a little bit about the contest itself mostly because JJ posted something about her thought process upon learning of it: "Sweet! Contest. I like winning things... Is there an age limit? Am I beyond the age limit? Even if there isn't an age limit should I try to cling to the last vestiges of dignity I have and NOT enter the contest? I wonder what's for dinner. RPatz is hot. Should I be thinking about things like this?!" - see her original post here if you'd like to take a gander - and consequently we got a TON of traffic from people looking for info on the contest. Sorry, people who wanted legit official rules and stuff!
Anyway, the unicorn they ultimately chose as the winner had made a humorous rappin'-white-boy video. It's cute. But honestly, after reading about another one of the entries on Letters to Twilight today, I gotta say that they picked the wrong submission. I'm not trying to diss the guy who won, but it seems like maybe Summit doesn't have the best grasp of their audience. Or they just don't care. Because if the contest winner had been chosen by the fans/popular vote, I think Rachel's submission would have won. Click here and scroll over to Rachel's name to view.
Beautiful, right? It really captures the essence of New Moon and what makes it so special, imho.
Long story [not so] short, UC and Moon over at LTT are trying to track down this person, to thank her and send her a little from-the-heart consolation prize. I doubt that anyone here at Twitarded missed the LTT post (hey I read and comment over there, too, and I see some familiar names and faces in the mix!), but I'll do my part to get the word out, just in case. Rachel, phone LTT!
