A few years back, Lambretta Clothing teamed up with The Who to reissue some of the band’s Mod-est attire, including the famous parka from the cover of Quadrophenia, pre-stenciled for your convenience. Apparently Lambretta marketing contracts aren’t worth much these days, so with a new Quadrophenia CD/DVD “Directors Cut” box set coming out, they’ve switched […]
After a couple weeks of incessant Lance Corona posts, I’m going to wrap this contest up and announce a winner, chosen at random from the 50-or-so entries we had in the comment thread and via email. And the winner is (shake shake): ChloePuff! Congrats, Chloe. Modern Buddy readers will recognize that name, she went out […]
Larry Crowne opens today nationwide. Read our review here and enter our Larry Crowne t-shirt, $25 gas card, and notebook giveaway, which ends tomorrow (Saturday). If those stakes aren’t high enough for you, Fandango’s Larry Crowne Sweepstakes offers a 150cc Genuine Buddy St. Tropez as the grand prize. Genuine Scooter Co. has a marketing relationship […]
Tom Hanks’ film Larry Crowne opens nationwide on July 1, with earlier premieres in some cities (contact your local Genuine dealer for info). What with Hanks being a scooterist, and scooters being prominently featured in the flick, Universal was kind enough to offer a prize package for one lucky 2strokebuzz reader, including a Larry Crowne […]
If you need more proof that VespaUSA is very nearly criminally clueless: co-promotion with Havaianas flip-flops. I know, people ride in flip-flops all the time. But to PROMOTE that? To ENDORSE it? That’s just plain irresponsible. I’d love to see a flood of tweets to @Havaianas and @VespaUSA from safe scooterists. And as @scooterism points […]
Tweet what you love about Corazzo gear @Corazzo and win a gift certificate or a new perforated leather Corazzo 5.0 jacket. 3 certs and a jacket will be given away every weekday until Aug. 25. (Their regular site and contest page appears to be down at the moment.)
Do it. Now. If I was guaranteed a free Vespa, I might eat at Burger King and go see a Twilight movie. “I Love You Man,” “Transformers,” it’s like they know all my favorite movies. I’m looking forward to the “Eat a live scorpion, then see your grandmother naked, win a Vespa” promotion.
Update: ESPN’s entry deadline is a bit unclear, but it could be sometime today (Thursday), so ENTER NOW! We sort of dropped the (Official Adidas Jabulani) World Cup ball this year, since we’ve been so hyped up on the Blackhawks, (see below). But World Cup season is always a big deal here on 2strokebuzz. If […]
What’s up with these contests lately that give away Vespas (in the case of the Jet Blue One Thing Thats Green Sweepstakes, a lot of Vespas) as a runner-up prize, with “top” prizes that no one would want (in this case, flights to the third world, or the “opportunity” to listen to Deepak Chopra’s mullarkey […]
KYMCO is sponsoring the IZOD Indy Car Series again this year, so they’re running a Live Like an Indy Car Driver contest. Grand Prize is a KYMCO 4-wheeler, but with luck, you can win the two runner-up prizes: KYMCO Super-8 scooters signed by IRL racer Ryan Hunter-Reay. Pick up an entry coupon at any KYMCO […]
Win some Vespa promotional items from Vespa Lexington. That flag is quite sweet and we’ve had an empty flag bracket ever since the pirate flag was stolen from 2SB HQ. Thanks, Michael! Hopefully this post will create a trackback link and it’ll count as my entry.
…but please, not at the same time. Kris is giving away customized orange Vespa S 50s around the U.S.
Apparently there’s a Vespa in that new Paul Rudd movie. So VespaUSA, finger placed firmly on the pulse of their immature-frat-boy-comedy target market, is running a contest. I’m trying to fit in a Vampire Weekend joke, but it’s not coming. UPDATE: Did I say “finger on the pulse?” They’ve got a contest on MySpace. too. […]
Oh, the fun we’ll have: A Discovery Science game show is looking for suggestions to destroy a scooter for a gameshow. Flyscooter clearly subscribes to the theory that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, ha. (If you’re not a Modern Buddy member, post your suggestions here, I’ll repost them over there and credit you […]
