Wicked Announces 'MIB: Hardcore Parody' Twitter Contest
Drawing inspiration from scientists in Puerto Rico set to re-tweet messages from world leaders into space to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Wow! Signal, a mysterious 72-second transmission detected by astronomer Jerry R. Ehman in 1977 while listening for extraterrestrial life at Ohio State's Big Ear radio telescope, the contest provides participants the opportunity to have a message of their own re-tweeted by Wicked exclusives Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei and Alektra Blue.
"What would you say to over a quarter of a million people," Wicked teases via press release. "Tell everyone how much you love your girl/boyfriend, a Happy Birthday shout-out, support for your favorite sports team, a baby-birth?"
To enter the contest, fans must follow @wickedpictures and tweet them a photograph in which they are wearing a black suit and sunglasses. The tweet must also contain the hashtags #Wicked and #MenInBlackAHardcoreParody, and state the one qualification that makes them worthy of joining the "Men in Black: Hardcore Parody" team.
One grand-prize winner will score the re-tweet, a 40-inch flat-screen TV with DVD/Blu-ray combo player and a Brad Armstrong movie bundle that includes "Manhunters," "Eternity," "Coming Home," "Fallen," "2040," "Speed" and, of course, "Men in Black: A Hardcore Parody."
A second prize winner will receive the DVD/Blu-ray player and movies, while those taking third, fourth and fifth prizes will get copies of Armstrong's features. The contest goes live on July 13 and comes to an end on Aug. 13.
"Men in Black: A Hardcore Parody" finds cantankerous Agent K (Randy Spears) and his partner Agent J (Misty Stone) attempting to stop Estrella (Drake), queen of the Vaginians, an alien race out to abduct the women of earth to use as breeding hosts, by any means necessary, even if it requires Agent J undergoing gender reassignment. A safe-for-work trailer can be seen at the studio's YouTube channel.
