Reeks of Wrong

Warner Music and Land Transport New Zealand are currently running a competition to win tickets to see Simple Plan live in Auckland or Christchurch. This may sound innocuous enough (if you ignore the fact that people actually want to see Simple Plan live), but these are the entry details:

Tell us your story of how your life was affected by drink driving in 500 words or less.
Five stories will be selected and these writers will get double tickets to see Simple Plan in concert in either Auckland or Christchurch (travel costs not included) and a copy of their new album “Still not getting any”.


Not only have these poor people been affected (adversely, one would assume) by drink driving, the people who write the best stories about it will have to be subjected to the incessant whining of Simple Plan both live and on CD. Having seen this sad excuse for a band live (I was waiting for Green Day, honest), I can confirm that they are indeed lamer than a three-legged donkey.

I can't help but think that that they might as well have called the competition "Who's family got killed in the most brutal way?" or "If you drink and drive, you're a bloody idiot - but if you tell us about it we might give you some stuff".
