hey you, grow some balls

Monday, 11 May 2009

About two weeks ago i strummed your heart strings like a fucking harp to raise funds for FBi Radio, who are struggling to stay afloat from lost advertising and supporter revenue due to the GFC.

FBi is now trying to out-wit insolvency. They've just launched the Ask Richard campaign, which is calling for pitches to convince Richard Branson, the world's biggest virgin, to give $1 million to the station.

They want their listeners to "grow some balls" and grab Dick's attention by any means. This could include "entering a singing competition wearing a Richard Branson mask" or "stopping Richard in his tracks" with a plea created in any medium, including skywriting.

Video tape and photograph it, send it to FBi, and if you are the reason Branson is compelled to donate a mill - you get a $50,000 cut. Sweet.

It'd be like the Rudd bonus all over again. But 55.5 of them. Or 251 8GB iPod Nanos. Or 417 pairs of American Apparel jeans. Your future as a trendspotter would be secure.
