The Winner of the CustomRetailer 10th Anniversary Caption Contest is...
As part of CustomRetailer's 10th anniversary celebration, we took a look back at some of the products that made the AV industry what it is today.
We posted a series of advertisements going back to 1959 and asked our readers to submit captions for them.
Now our panel of judges has announced a tie! Captions from Nick Brown of Caster Communications and Terry Coffey of Draper Inc. were selected as the favorites.
Both won with captions on the 1967 Sony Portable TV Nudist advertisement. They will each recieve an iTunes gift cards for their efforts.
Brown's winning caption is, "Keep looking forward and don't reach in the popcorn bucket of the guy next to you."
And Coffey's winning caption is, "The Sony TV700U: At least we have your entertainment needs covered."
Receiving honorable mention is Joe Paone, also for the Sony nudist ad, "Not all of the viewing angles here are awesome." Another honorable mention goes to Rick Murphy for the 1988 Shintom VHS ad, "SHINTOM: 'If you haven't heard of us by now, you never will!'"
You can see all of the advertisements here on CustomRetailer.net, or on CustomRetailer's Facebook page and feel free to continue leaving you captions in the comment sections. Thank you to our friends at Dealerscope for opening up the archives for these great ads.
