On Wednesday the 8th of August I won a Driver 76 Shirt courtesy of the guys at ubisoft. I went to check my emails and less than a minute ago I was sent an email from ubisoft Project Manager entitled â€œDriver 76 T-shirt Winnersâ€. I was so excited I didnâ€™t know what to do so I opened it and replied to it as quick as possible.
I decided to reply as quickly as possible. I managed to reply with all the required details with a little more unneeded information within two minutes. The message looked so horrible and unprofessional I have no idea why I had to click send button so soon. Well whatâ€™s done has been done and there is nothing else I could do after I had sent it. Iâ€™m pretty sure they never got to reading it straight away as I got a reply three hours later.
Days and days pass byâ€¦ I keep on checking the mail and no special package. I wasnâ€™t really expecting it to come to soon because ubisoft is based in the US and the guy who emailed me about this prize had a phone number with the US prefix.
Then I peered into the letterbox and found what you see in the above picture. Except the package had included my address which I removed for privacy reasons.
Firstly I decided to turn it over and see who sent it. It read
Ubisoft Pty Ltd.
Suite 3, Level 2
19 Harris St
Pyrmont, NSW 2009
And I thought it was getting sent all the way from the other side of the world. Well at least it come earlier than expected and I can enjoy whatever is inside.
I decided to open it after 3 hours wondering what I really should do with it. I really had no idea whether I should preserve it in its packaging till the day I see Martin Edmondson or whether I should just open it to see what was inside.
For the purpose of this page I decided to completely open it and show the world what was inside. So you could see what I seen when I opened it up and took a look under the hood.
I would have liked to make a movie out of this but I never had anyone around to film and I really wanted to spend loads of time taking picture perfect photos. So I tried getting the lighting perfect and everything. Too bad I never had a 1000 dollar digital camera.
Then I decided to take an overhead view photo of it all nice and folded up. I took a look at the other side which didnâ€™t look as good and yes I have photos but never decided to upload them because it looked a little creased up.
A photo I couldnâ€™t miss taking a photo of. Besides the small creases doesnâ€™t it look beautiful? Glowing there on the shiny wooden table for the entire world to see.
This was a great little prize, and as the owner of this driver fansite I always wonder why I didnâ€™t win something as good as that iPod nano in the scratchmycar competition. But I guess it was total luck that the owner of a fansite being the only English fansite out there and I won this prize by pure luck. Doesnâ€™t that seem unlikely? Lucky me. However Iâ€™m still not sure what I really won this for, I made a late entry into the palgn driver 76 contest and I did the scratchmycar game but I thought that was to win a â€œDriver 76â€ iPod Nano.
I guess Iâ€™m lucky to have received this and I thank ubisoft so much. I just wished I got another one because I really want to preserve this one rather than wearing it. If I could only get another one then I could frame one of them and wear the one that fits me best.
