You know, students get all the fun nowadays. They get to attend fancy prom nights, exclusive gala dinners, organize extreme competition and be involved in big time reality shows.
I remember back in my days, being a student meant study, study and mamak. Lots of mamak. Not once I remember being offered an all expensed paid trip to even Pulau Besar in Melaka.
It’s sad really. No wonder a friend told me I am still considered part of Gen X; am I not part of the MTV generation? Darn it.
Why am I making all these complaints? Because I’m being sour about it, that’s why.
Here’s another opportunity for all students out there to stand the chance to win an all expense paid trip to Portland, Oregon in USA. *Oh great, go ahead, make my day why not*
Held by the al-mighty Nike, aka everyone’s worshipped brand, aka wearing Nike means you are cool, aka Nike is status;
You get my point
Project Lightweight is a competition open to currently registered college/university students in Malaysia whereby the best lightweight athletic product design
so light it floats
will win its owner an exclusive and personal trip to Nike’s World Headquarters in Portland where he/she will be given a tour around the Campus and once-in-a-life-time opportunity to visit the “Kitchen” that houses the top designers in Nike.
Rumour has it that any product of Nike’s that comes out from the Innovation Kitchen will take the world by storm, clouds will part and angels will sing; stock market increase and people go insane.
What? I wouldn’t know. I’m not in the States to see the real thing. But I’m the real fact is not far from what I have just said.
Everyone knows that Nike is best known for its advertising campaign and quirky innovation marketing scheme and amazing products. I mean, admit it, they’re good in what they do. And they do it with a bang.
They find the best people,
The best product placement,
Their messages are always “in your face”,
With a sense of humor,
Hence, when Nike does something, they go all the way. That means flying a student all the way to the states to meet some of the top geniuses and brains behind Nike.
Just do it. (Deja Vu, this is exactly what I said to myself when I was contemplating to backpack across Indo-China alone)
And to think their logo looks like a check mark.
Which is exactly their point, just do it. Go submit that entry now you lucky
All submissions must be made between now till 31 July 2008. Get your passport ready and go to their site to learn more about the competition. Or is it the other way around? Sigh~ *sulks*
Hey Nike, when do I get to visit USA?
I don’t mind being the winner’s bag carrier. :D
