Oh yeah, It’s about to go DOWN.
Smule is releasing the most requested song since the dawn of the App Store: “I’m on a Boat” available to users on the “I Am T-Pain” iPhone app.
To celebrate the occasion, Smule is kicking off the “I’m On a Boat” contest, offering up some serious booty:
- $500.00 to each of the top ten finalists
- Grillz, modeled after T-Pain’s own grillz, to each of the top ten finalists
- $5,000.00 and a Big Ass Chain ($47 value, approximate weight of 10 lbs) to the top finalist
- Internet fame and glory
Like the “This Contest Blows” contest celebrating user performances on the Ocarina, we expect nothing less than eccentricity bordering on creativity from our users: http://ocarina.smule.com/contest/
Aspiring rappers should submit their video performances on YouTube. T-Pain and Smule will search for the best videos featuring I Am T-Pain. Using a proprietary T-Pain induced Smulean algorithm which combines views, ratings, suggestion of some musical talent, and lyrical inspiration, each week for the next ten weeks a finalist will be selected and announced, culminating in the announcement of the grand prize winner of the Big Ass Chain (a $47 value) on December 15th. If you think you’ve got what it takes, journalists and bloggers are welcome to participate. Contest details here: http://iamtpain.com/contest
Check back to the contest site, watch your Twitter feeds, and tune into weekly live broadcasts with “The Artist Formerly Known as The Mule” (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/smule) every Monday at 7:00 pm PDT to see the winners announced live. Additional blinged out prizes, including autographed items, will be distributed throughout the contest.”
BUT WAIT, THAT’S NOT ALL. “I Am T-Pain” will be offered at a specially reduced price of $0.99 from Thursday, October 1st at 1 pm PDT until Saturday, October 3rd, at 11:59 PDT as we launch the “I’m on a Boat” contest.
