I've just been talking to Codemasters, where I have been made an absolutely wonderful offer. The marketing team behind Rise of the Argonauts and Damnation has pledged a $1000 sponsorship for the Extra Life SingSterling Challenge! How about THEM CHARITY APPLES?!
In exchange for this terrific offer, I will be wearing an RotA or Damnation shirt for the event. A decent trade, I think, plus I get a free shirt for my trouble. They can bury me in it when I die from exhaustion!
Of course, this has given me a great new idea. In addition to the debasement I am already suffering by singing for 24 hours, I am now also officially offering my services as a CORPORATE WHORE! If you are a developer or publisher and you want free advertisement, then sponsor me for $1000 and I will wear an item of clothing promoting one of your games. I can swap out shirts on a regular basis, wear hats, jackets, gloves, even underwear if you want.
I will be making these offers in person at TGS, and I invite any and all industry folk to contact me at: jim @ destructoid.com. I will degrade myself further by being a walking, singing billboard for your products -- regardless of product quality -- for a $1000 sponsorship.
In the mean time, please join me and give a HUGE thanks to Codemasters and the Rise of the Argonauts/Damnation team! Don't forget to SPONSOR me as well!
