Do you own love bug? Do you want to turn it into Herbie? This contest's for you!!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a nifty little contest for a select few of you out there. AICN was given some large magnetic 53s as a giveaway to promote that Lindsay Lohan HERBIE movie coming to DVD. Honestly, I never saw the movie. I probably won't see the movie, but I think this is a sweet giveaway.
The first 7 people to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 53 and a picture of themselves standing next to their VW Bug gets a giant 53 magnet to turn their rides from ordinary to Herbie. This is as close to AICN's Pimp Your Ride as you're gonna get. In order to make sure we get entries from real people with real Bugs I'm gonna need to you to be flipping off the camera with one hand and giving the peace sign with the other. That way we won't get people who are Bug-less just finding random pictures online. Also, be sure to include your mailing address. Keep in mind we may be posting the winners on this very website, so you shy ones have a choice to make.
Try to keep the pics unders 100k. We'll update this story when we get all our winners.
I'm gonna add on a little fine print since the last contest I ran got a little messy with one of the losers getting pissed off and trying to sue the poor dude who donated his Disney art to us for the contest. The rules to this contest can be changed at any time and the winners are up to my sole discretion. By entering the contest you agree to that. That wasn't too hard, was it?

I loved Herbie as a kid, and wanted a Volkswagon Bug that was painted just like Herbie so bad I could hardly stand it. Not so much anymore.

I can't recall any contest winners on this site that actually followed the rules. It's considered bad taste. Oh and if any guys win this, you might have to rearrange your rainbow and pink triangle magnets to compensate. I keed, I keed.

Why the fuck would you want to put a 53 on the side of your car. As if the vehicle isn't stupid enough already.

I never got the game, and it's been almost a year. You keep saying you will send it, but I have a feeling you keep forgetting.

Since Big Red is apparently busy today, could you please post about the TIDELAND trailer? I'm sure the Gilliam geeks would appreciate it, thanks: http://www.tidelandthemovie.com/

Ok, I don't actually have a DeLorean. But if I win the contest, I can go back in time to about 1982 and get one cheap before they stop producing them. Then I can go forward and win the contest. Wait.

How has nobody posted this trailer yet? You're giving away shit for a gay movie that came out like 6 fucking months ago, that nobody cared about, especially after they digitally erased Lindsey Lohans tits, which they didn't need to do, because holy fucking hell, it looks like she did it herself (that skinny idiot), when you could be giving useful information out to people who don't know they've released a really good fucking trailer for Tideland, with one of the most underrated, underused actors of our time.....Jeff-the dude-"my penis is funny" Bridges.

The aforementioned DeLorean from Back to the Future, K.I.T.T. and if the technology ever exists, a semi cab that transforms into a robot. End of list.

The tideland trailer and 3 clips on the official web site are sweet.

Rather run down to get free Weenie-tot samples down at the local Albertson's... No offense Quint, but it just sounds like you're cleaning out your schwag closet and thought "I wonder how many monkeys will dance for this rotten banana..."
