‘V’ $100K money drop is back on and going virtual!

MEDIA RELEASE EMBARGOED UNTIL: 11.30pm 19th August 2008

‘V’ $100K money drop is back on and going virtual!

The People’s Republic of ‘V’ is excited to announce the $100K money drop is finally here. Yes, it’s been a while in the making - but this time it’s the real deal!

It’s an all too PC kind-of-world these days and we gave it our best shot to give you guys a real live money throw, but alas, it was not meant to be. We now have something way cooler; a Virtual Money Drop, and with this weather you can be in to win from the comfort of your own home. Since the powers that be wouldn’t let us throw $100K in the real world we are going to throw it all over the web!

‘V’ has been hard at work with some of the world’s top cyber geeks developing an amazing state-of the-art virtual money drop, the very first of its kind to be held in NZ. There ain’t no cyberpunk with the skills to hack into this sucker! And the good news is we are holding the money throw in a park as originally planned but going virtual makes it way more fun and practically bomb proof.

Sign up to escape from reality and win yourself some cash. Enter V’s virtual world to win a spot on the field where we’ll be dropping $100K and giving away a pallet of ‘V’. The object of the game is to sprint to the park in the fastest possible time. The fastest 2,000 people get a spot on the field before it reaches capacity. The faster your time, the greater your chance is to win the most cash. Once the drop is done, you lucky winners will be notified of how much cash you’ve won and you’ll get a cheque in the post.

Anyone can register to play and be in to win, but you MUST register online at Registration opens August 20 and closes midnight August 24. So get to it now!

The People’s Republic of ‘V’ - it’s whatever YOU make it!
