Michael Jackson The Experience for Wii moonwalks its way onto shelves today, and to celebrate, Ubisoft is offering loving fans the chance to win a limited edition replica rhinestone glove fashioned after the King of Pop’s iconic piece of hand-ware.
Ten participants will be chosen for a chance to take home the magical mitten, either by finding one of the “golden tickets” that Ubisoft has included in five copies of the game, or by being selected from a drawing being held on the game’s official Facebook page. If you don’t mind settling for a less than “experienced” replica glove, a limited number of copies of the game will include one for the same price as the (I love this) “non-glove Wii version.”
"Michael Jackson's iconic glove is easily one of the most recognizable and coveted items in the history of music," Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key said in a statement. "We're thrilled and honored to work with the [Michael Jackson] Estate to have these replica gloves made for our 'Experience the Glove' philanthropic campaign and to be able to make one available to the fans is equally exciting. We can't wait to see who wins the glove."
In addition to the big glove grand prize, Ubisoft will also be giving away a Gold Reward prize, which includes the Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection box set and a DVD copy of Michael Jackson’s Vision. Eight silver prizes will be awarded that include just a copy of the DVD, and community prize packs will go out to two participants each month until the contest period ends on March 31, 2011. The community pack includes: an “I Glove Michael Jackson” shirt and button, Michael Jackson The Experience poster, and a copy of The Experience for Wii.
Anyone participating in this sweepstakes? Is it me, or is the "Experience the Glove" tagline super creepy?
