IT HAPPENED. OUR LARGE SHOW WAS ANNOUNCED.
We're very proud to bring Bowling for Soup to our university this year!
Yeah, THAT Bowling for Soup. You know, the guys who did this song:
AND this song:
AAAAND, of course, this:
So yeah, the hype is real. But this is a paid show, and for a college student, paying for things isn't exactly favorable.
Luckily, we're here to present an alternative that'll snag you tickets FOR FREE. However, you're going to have to work for these tickets...
...by taking selfies.
We're VERY excited to announce our #SoupSelfies contest. By using the hashtag with your image, you will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a free ticket to the show.
You can choose to post your image on your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter profile. If you do it this way, you MUST "@," mention, or tag us in the description. You also have the option to privately message us the image, which we will then post ourselves.
We have five free tickets to give away so the five best #SoupSelfies will be awarded.
BUT, there's a catch. You can't just take a lazy, uninspired selfie with some random can of soup. There's a process here.
1. Find your favorite can of soup
It's hard to care about something if you're not passionate. So why take a selfie with any old can of soup? Find your favorite, even if that means going out and buying it. It'll make your image feel more personal.
2. Choose a weird or interesting location
Don't just position yourself next to your cupboard. Go somewhere weird. But don't be stupid about it. We're not responsible if you fall into Lake Menomin while trying to capture a fire selfie.
3. Position the soup in a creative manner
Put soup where it doesn't belong. Bring soup out of it's comfort zone. We want you to take your soup where no soup has gone before.
4. Make a goofy face
Be silly about it! Deadpan expressions are never fun. This will help brighten your selfie.
Once you follow all these, you should have something that looks like this:
You see? It's pretty simple!
Remember, you have two options to submit:
- Post your pic on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with #SoupSelfies. Be sure to "@," tag, or mention us in the pic.
- Send us a private message of your pic via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and we'll post it.
We will be accepting submissions until Friday, October 28th @ 11:59 p.m.
Now get out there and get creative!
