Last Friday one of my Twitter followers, @Nok4US, posted this picture and asked Twitter to caption it:
I retweeted and almost instantly started getting some really funny responses, so I turned it into a spontaneous contest; send me your best caption for the picture with the hashtag #captionthatlumia, and one lucky winner will get a brand new Lumia 900 in the color of their choice.
I got a whopping 1,499 responses. They included lots of tributes to Outkast (so fresh & so clean!) and few parodies of #smokedbywindowsphone (#soapedbywindowsphone?) and some tweets channeling Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” (I don’t always bathe, but when I do, it’s with a Lumia 900).
But amidst all of them, my crack team of judges – you know, the people in my hallway here in Studio G – and I picked this one by @dnanian as the winner:
It took a heck of a lot of scrubbing, but I finally got all the cyan out.
I was also partial to this punny tweet by @donjuan914:
The perfect Finnish
And this satirical Haiku by @Sohraab:
Lumia so lean
Makes bar of soap look unclean
As our first and second runners-up, you’re both getting an awesome Windows Phone swag pack!
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and to @Nok4US for inspiring the whole thing. I had a blast reading the captions and I can assure you that we’ll DEFINITELY do something like this again!
