Tuesday March 29th
The personal bit:
Kids go back to school today.
Stuff that happened:
I had a chat with the Canucks Promo person. They explained what went wrong with that last ticket giveaway, and I’m going to relay that information here:
The promotion is run by Jugo Juice. On game days, they tweet out the clue about which Jugo Juice will have free Canucks tickets. The Canucks promo person shows up, takes a photo, and texts it back to headquarters – they do not have access to the Twitter account, so cannot post themselves. At headquarters, the photo is edited and the tweet is sent out.
When the Canucks promo person showed up to take the photo, they were wearing a Canucks jacket. Someone saw them walking through the mall toward the Jugo Juice and approached them. The promo person admitted that yes, they had the tickets. They continued on to the Jugo Juice, where the Canucks person took the picture and sent it back to headquarters. Headquarters was unaware that the tickets were already won, so they tweeted out the photo. They had no idea that the tickets were already spoken for – Christina had stalked the promo person and won the tickets before others even had a chance. She didn’t want her photo tweeted because they were supposed to be a surprise for her boyfriend Jeff Chin, who is a huge Canucks fan. Interestingly, it appears that Christina doesn’t even have a Twitter account, so I’m not sure how she knew about the contest… *squints at Jeff*
Unfortunately, wires were crossed and misconceptions sparked controversy. I want to be clear – Canucks headquarters had NOTHING to do with this promotion going wrong. They were mortified that there was even a question about their honesty. The whole Canucks franchise is truly above reproach in every regard – they do SO much good in our community, I have nothing but accolades for this team and their people. This picture of Henrik with my son taken last summer is one of my faves of all time!!!
It appears that die-hard Canucks fans will do anything for tickets – including stalking Jugo Juice’s twitter feed on game days. And all the power to them – fans are what makes a team great! We are big fans ourselves, and if there was a Jugo Juice anywhere near me I’d probably show up there on game days *just in case*. And if I won the ZFX, I might buy my husband season tickets! Alas, we are destined to keep trying to win the tickets elsewhere… *sigh*…
Speaking of ZFX, I was caller 4 at the 5pm play – ON MY CELL PHONE!!! WTF?! I almost fell off my chair when my cell phone began to ring and the landline was getting a busy signal. Crazy.
The 11am set of plays really has me hopping, as I try to catch names on Beat Your Bills, Win at Work, and Payroll, as well as plays of ZFX and Beat the Bank. I have given up trying to catch the Rock 101 play at that time – I’m good, but I’m not THAT good!
Kiss is giving one lucky listener a chance to see Ellie Goulding from a private suite. Go HERE and tell them about the best prank you’ve ever pulled on your BFF. They will “randomly” draw a winner and call them Friday morning. Aside from the glaring typo, the form is relatively simple to follow.
