Gone were the days when snacking on potato chips was an uncool past time reserved only for those a little too rounded at the waist.
These days, snacking on just a LITTLE TOO MUCH potato chips can result in a very nice trip to a famous football stadium, far, far away.
And when I am talking about far, I'm talking about a different time zone here. (:
If you have been following the development of Project Trafford, I reckon that you know what I'm talking about - Mr. Potato's latest competition, promising a free trip to Old Trafford, the home of the Red Devils, Manchester United!
The top 30 Football Point Collectors of this competition win a Total Football Tour to Manchester United inclusive of Stadium and Museum tour worth RM 15,000 each!
What's more is that the top 5 monthly collectors of Football points get collectors jerseys personally autographed by football greats such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Ballack, Fernando Torres, Nani & Cesc Fabregas!
Find more details on the contest at the Mr. Potato website here!
Since when was eating chips at home ever this fun?
The contest is really simple! All you have to do is to just keep buying Mr. Potato and keep the proofs of purchases! The more you collect, the more you stand to win limited edition merchandise and also the free trip to Old Trafford! All for just eating and collecting Mr. Potato wrappers!
But I'm a poor, poor boy, who doesn't have all the money in the world to splurge on chips all day long... So what do I do?
But if you know me, I try anyway.
Didn't I say that I tried?
