For some young D.C. residents, the list knows no bounds. I read this a few minutes ago, and just had to post it. After the iBook riot, this is just further evidence of how far some people will go for the latest Apple products.
In a contest to win an iPod Nano, a group of twenty-something partygoers in D.C. pretty much pulled out all the stops.
The game got off to a slow start, reports Ahmed Nzibo, 23. “For the first half-hour of the game, it wasn’t about the contest,” he says. “There was a lot of mingling.” Contestants started with preliminary, safe dares, such as kissing and squawking like a chicken.
But then Nzibo got the ball rolling, when he dared a heterosexual male contender to give one of his gay peers a lap dance. The man refused. He was out, banished to the losers’ lounge.
The dares escalated. Straight men made out with each other. Feet were licked. Toes were sucked. Someone got a penis in the nose. One gay contestant stuck his face in a woman’s vulva.
“People weren’t really drunk, either,” recalls Nzibo, who was banished after only one round, when he refused to lick a testicle. “The fact that it was a Nano was so key. Even if you knew you had no chance [of winning], you kind of wanted one anyway,” he says.
…The victor, 21-year-old Glover Park resident Jeff Schneidman, shaved his head and endured one most-humiliating act: a golden shower.
After the contest ended, Schneidman opened the iPod package and passed it around to the other contestants. The choice of prize, Schubert says, was a success: “People were pretty desperate. There were things I didn’t expect.”
Geez. I thought people would have learned by now. Where Apple gizmos are concerned expect anything. Anyway, I’d have just paid the $211+tax and bought my own.
