College Humor’s Social Media Campaign For Dreadlock Banana

gribbohm-banana

College Humor has stepped up to help out a guy who reportedly lost all $2,600 of his life savings at a carnival game. Yes, you read that correctly.

The popular site has launched a “Like This Post” campaign where each like on this specific post will put $0.10 towards the $2,600 purchase price that College Humor plans to offer Henry Gribbohm, the New Hampshire man with bad luck at the carnival, for his giant stuffed dreadlock banana.

Gribbohm says he got caught up in the moment before realizing he had blown through $2,600 while trying to win his kids an Xbox 360. Instead of winning the top prize of the Xbox, all he walked away with was an oversized stuffed banana. Gribbohm now claims the game was rigged, and is contemplating a lawsuit while police are investigating whether any fraud occurred. The carnival operators did give Gribbohm $600 of his money back when he returned the next day to complain, which incidentally is more than enough to buy a 250GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle at the Microsoft Store.

College Humor states that this is no laughing matter, and they are completely serious about buying the banana for a $2,600 price tag. They have even upped the ante where if they get 30,000 likes, they will buy the banana and the Xbox that Gribbohm was trying to win.

Considering how much advertising revenue and hits could be potentially generated by this one post, College Humor might be getting off cheaply, and getting a nice stuffed banana in the process.

It’s Official! Master Chief Awakes on November 6th!

Halo 4 Preview

When last we saw Master Chief, he was getting into a cryo-chamber, telling Cortana, “Wake me…when you need me.” Last year, we got a sneek peak at E3 of Cortana doing just that (reviving our sleeping super soldier), and now the date has finally been set! Microsoft has revealed that November 6, 2012 will be the official launch date of the latest installment in the Halo franchise, Halo 4. This is the first game in the franchise under new developer 343 Industries, and will mark the return of Master Chief, the central character of the Halo franchise. Pre-Ordering is already available at your favorite gaming outlets. The new game will be the first in a new trilogy for Halo fans.

“November 6 is an important date in Halo’s vast and fascinating history. For the uninitiated, that was the day the Master Chief found a weapon, a parched Grunt stumbled upon the starship, and Staff Sergeant Avery Junior Johnson discovered the answer to one of life’s most perplexing questions. He wasn’t born knowing what the ladies like, you know.” -Bs Angel at HaloWaypoint

In partnership with Rooster Teeth Video, Microsoft have released a couple of Red Vs Blue videos to make sure all game fans remember not to forget the date.


Who’s in with planning a sick day with the lame fake cough? Forget about us in the United States actually electing a president that day!
