LG is throwing down a challenge on their LG Bliss Facebook Fan Page. They are looking for you to “drop off” the most hideously ugly things that you are brave enough to upload a photo of that are currently in your life. In exchange, you will be entered to win a $50 gift card or a new LG Bliss phone. There will five individuals who will win the phone, and fifty second place winners who will win gift cards. Either way, it seems like a sweet deal to me.
One suggestion they make is to upload Ugly-mobiles that are making a “nonstop trip to ugly town,” mutant macines (outdated, hideous electronics), and my favorite, Trashy Trends (fabulously ugly fashion.) Unfortunately, I was not particularly trendy during the 1980s, a decade ripe for potentially poorly fashion choices, particularly because I favored looking for unfashionable 1940s clothing at the local thrift. In this case, I would envy my friends who were fashion victims, and decided that Flock of Seagulls hair was the way to go. They would have a winning photo for sure.
A few years ago, I came across this 70s fashion photo for Mr. Wrangler. Too bad I didn’t keep the whole magazine, but I had found it damaged beyond repair. I scanned the ad to save it for posterity. The gentleman on the right needs no words to elaborate on that look. I keep wondering if the man on the left stole someone’s boots, cut the shafts off and sewed them to his pants. I was wondering if this would qualify, and the rules say I can upload “anything” I find ugly, so I can! Of course, some of you may disagree and say these guys are the epitome of hip. Well, the hip of yesteryear can be the ugly of today.
You can only enter once per Facebook account. In other words, think long and hard and make it good! Contest ends November 6, 2009. Entries are not limited to images; you can upload a video if you prefer. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder, but images of violence or related “ugly behavior” will be disqualified.
If you enter and use a bad judgement of fashion, let me know. I would love to see it. Let me know if I can only look at it in a reflection like an encounter with Medusa, the poster child for ugly itself, or do I dare look at it straight on?
