Movie Studios, Comic Companies, Toy Companies, Video Games, Gadget Companies, Collectibles Companies - BNAT GOODIE BAG TIME!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... Like every year, around this time, I do a story about the BUTT-NUMB-A-THON GOODIE BAG & Friday night party. For the very first time ever - we have someone heading up Sponsorship and Goodie Bag duties, for years Moises Chiullan was a fan, like all of us, but now he's on board the Alamo Drafthouse team as the Alamo's Director of Brand Development. Moises is handling all sponsorship and goodie bag details for this year's BUTT-NUMB-A-THON: THE DIRTY DOZENTH... If your company, business or personal project needs to be distributed into the hands of 200-225 of the biggest geeks out there. While only 200 get into the event, we like to have bags for the various guests that come in for the fest. To contact Moises - drop him an email at So - what are the opportunities? First - The GOODIE BAG. Before we get to what goes INTO the Bag, there is the Bag itself... That's right, we're going to be looking for a BAG sponsor to provide the bag that all the fabulous and amazing goodies go into. If you want your brand upon the bag, contact Moises above. If your company wants to construct the bag, for THE DIRTY DOZENTH BUTT-NUMB-A-THON, quickly send him an email! There's also the POSTER TUBE which is how everyone takes home the movie posters, game posters, comic posters, paper that needs to be rolled and stored safely. If you'd like to sponsor the TUBE, perhaps you have a unique or cool TUBE you'd like to promote. Contact Moises. Then there's the Friday Night Party - We're looking for alcohol & entertainment sponsors to make the Friday Night affair as big and wonderful as it has ever been before. The Opening Night Party is where all the BNATTERS (aka attendees of BUTT-NUMB-A-THON) meet up and get to know each other before the assault of the next 24 hours - The opportunities are pretty grand. Anyone that has seen what we do at FANTASTIC FEST, well - BUTT-NUMB-A-THON in many ways is FANTASTIC FEST's daddy, so this'll be a fun event. Contact Moises to see how your company or you can take part. NOW - what goes into the GOODIE BAGs? Think of it like FELIX THE CAT's Magical Bag o' Tricks... The Goodie Bag has been responsible for BUTT-NUMB-A-THON being referred to as GEEK CHRISTMAS. Anything you can imagine can go into this bag. If you want to promote your new Electric Car by giving a couple hundred away - we'll fit it in the bag. Video Game systems, Entertainment systems and forward thinking technology - what we're looking for are the coolest things out there. We're also looking for silly things - everything from Whoopi Cushions, ass donuts, caffeinated goodies... Got a movie coming out? We'll put your DVD/BLU-RAY/Poster/Hat/Underwear/Condoms/Promo Item in the bag. These can be Vintage films, movies coming out to home video, movies coming out next year or at some point this year. We're looking for cool stuff and if your stuff is cool, we'll put it into the hands to the most talky web saavy geeks on the planet. Same with your Online Movie Streaming companies. These geeks love watching a lot of movies and getting on their good side is always good. Video Game Company? Geeks love Games and game ephemera. But our geeks think beyond just Video Games, they love Board Games, Trivia Games, Games that require funny shape dice and character charts. They like little metal & plastic figures, cloaks, gauntlets, bald caps, funny ears. Cologne sponsors... Ideally - we're looking for a MANDOM sponsor - but because MANDOM is a Japanese cologne, I doubt seriously that I'll be able to talk them into sending 225 bottles of MANDOM over - but, if you want to be our MANDOM sponsor - we have some options and marketing possibilities for ya. We're planning on making use of many of the amazing MANDOM spots that were created for this year's BUTT-NUMB-A-THON, some of these will be shown throughout the event most likely - and tagging on a little, "MANDOM brought to BNAT by..." your company here. Is your company MANDOM enough to sponsor our MANDOM? Comics... Every year we get more and more Comic Sponsors... A full half of the audience of BUTT-NUMB-A-THON have to travel a great distance to attend BNAT. That gives them reading time. We're good for single issues, graphic novels, comic collections. Etc. Also, there's a growing legion of iPad lovers - so if you want to send a promo that allows for free downloads of a few DIGITAL issues, that's appreciated as well. Toy & Collectibles Companies... Every attendee of BUTT-NUMB-A-THON has a healthy kid inside of them. If you have the next cool collectible or toy item that you want blogged about - providing for the bag is a good thing. We also are looking for some HIGH END cool items to give out via various contests throughtout the event itself. Contests are good, because they get people excited and your badass item could be what gets them all excited. Music... Cool geeks love cool music, music devices, things to plug their iPods into. If you're a band and want to get your music heard, send CDs, memory sticks with music on them, whatever. We geeks rock out with our cocks out! We also have the BUTT-NUMB-A-THON yearbooks & there are sponsorship & promotional opportunities there as well. As with all of this, contact Moises at If you want to speak with him, just drop him an email and he'll contact you right back. The main thing is - we're looking to have a lot of fun, promote a lot of the coolest things out there and have you be a part of GEEK CHRISTMAS aka BUTT-NUMB-A-THON: THE DIRTY DOZENTH!

    by SoylentMean

    This should be a simultaneous, multi-coast event

    by SoylentMean

    It could be done. We have the technology.

    Oh, and where's the DVD column? Dammit.

    by SoylentMean

    Why haven't you told me that Toy Story 3 is on DVD & Blu? How will I know? How will I fuckin' know?!!!!!!!

    I bet there's a ton of aerosol spray used at BNAT

    by SoylentMean

    Maybe they pump in pleasant fragrances. My local theater smells like wildebeasts gone wild after a big showing. I can't imagine what the smell is after 24 hours.

  • Nov. 3, 2010, 6:06 p.m. CST

    There need to be pictures of all this swag.

    by SoylentMean

    Vicarious living must be done.

    Harry, try Paramount. They're releasing SCOTT PILGRIM on dvd this week. If it's anything like the theatrical run then they'll be LOTS of spare copies about.<p> It's BNAT or landfill...

    Perfect perfume would be that Vulva stuff

    by Spaderific

    Yes, that perfume which smells like a vagina. Perfect for all the geeks attending who've never smelled a woman before.

  • Nov. 3, 2010, 8:25 p.m. CST


    by wes

    HEY, I've smelled a woman before, they smell just like vanilla wafers.

  • Nov. 3, 2010, 8:25 p.m. CST


    by wes

    Actually, that was just a vanilla wafer.

  • Nov. 3, 2010, 10:52 p.m. CST

    What about a fleshlight.

    But it's severed woman's head with an open mouth! Oh god, I'm horrible.

    Pirated copies of Scott Pilgrim

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Will be a few of them around in HK soon, especially given the lack of release of cinemas, can send some over if you would like.

    Packages from Yemen

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    I hear there is some exciting stuff being sent from Yemen recently, am sure some of these could be included in the bag of goodies.

    I assumed Mandom was already in on this year's feat

    by Bass Ackwards

    So was the whole Mandom thing for the apps random, or is there an inside joke I'm maybe missing?

  • Nov. 4, 2010, 6:27 a.m. CST

    Huh your cologne thing makes NO sense Harry..

    by quantize

    ..think about it, it's like asking Pepsi if they'd like to sponsor a Coke branded've used an existing brand name in your event theme. Silly.

    Goodie bags

    by mrbrotatohead

    In all the excitement about the films of BNAT, I kinda forgot about the GIFTS of BNAT! These are always so exciting to hear about. I can't wait to dig through one!

  • Nov. 4, 2010, 10:59 a.m. CST

    Re Mandom Bass Ackwards

    by smallerdemon

    BNAT12 is loosely themed on The Dirty Dozen. One of the officer members of the Dozen is Charles Bronson. Bronson (like so many other US celebs) did Japanese commercials that rarely aired in the US and the ones for MANDOM have been internet famous via YouTube for a few years now. So, the connection is Bronson since he was both in TDD and MANDOM commercials. At least that's my take on it. :) The joke part of it is the ridiculous machismo in the song and the commercials. It's like a five year old's version of what being a MAN™ is like.

  • Nov. 4, 2010, 12:48 p.m. CST

    Don't forget the condoms!

    by Zardoz

    Oh, wait. Never mind!

    I wish I had less of a life...

    Don't forget to take a towel

    by Mr Soze

    To clean the crotch rot after sitting for 24 hrs. straight

    by SebastianHaff

    Isn't BNAT basically Harry's birthday party? ...He's asking for sponsors for his birthday party? Asking for people to donate tons of cool, free shit to his party, and saying it's for THEIR benefit? Isn't that kind of... Eric Cartman-ish? Don't get me wrong, I actually think it's kind of awesome. Just saying...

  • Nov. 4, 2010, 10:44 p.m. CST


    by mcavity

    and getting guests to pay for the privilege of going to his party? Well If you could pull it off wouldn't you? /wants to go so badly! lol.

  • Nov. 5, 2010, 12:39 a.m. CST



    Actually, the event sponsors a year round Children's Film Series that we founded with BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS - I set it around my birthday, because when I was a kid, my parents would throw 24 hour film shows at our house in 16mm for all my friends. <BR><BR> My birthday was just about the timing, not what the event is for.

    I hate to admit my pussiness, but when I saw a black post with my name on it I got a little nervous. Thanks for going easy on me, sir. Did a little research and that Children's Series actually sounds pretty cool, I'm all for geeking up the youth of tomorrow. The Haff was wrong. Sorry big guy!

    by durikaj

    So I e-mailed Moises last week about BNAT but haven't gotten any response...What to do?

  • Nov. 11, 2010, 10:01 a.m. CST
