South Korean StarCraft championships video leaves me ... well, speechless

Oh the pageantry of two nerds sitting at a computer surrounded by adoring crowds, bright lights and the pressure of being the best ... simply the best. Color me weird, but I always found the way professional gaming was handled and appreciated overseas to be fascinating and this video is a perfect example of why. Any chance we could ever see a spectacle like this in the U.S.? I doubt it.

SXSW 07: Killer swag contest photo
SXSW 07: Killer swag contest
by Robert Summa

It's fairly standard: You go to a convention, you get a ton of swag. One of the most pimped-out swag items we've seen so far, though, is this hotness from Killer -- they make high-end network interface cards that help hardcore gamers, allegedly. So, of course, we want to give this away to you. Here's what you gotta do:

Create a photoshop using any videogame character or personality and put them in a sort of blingy Icy Hot Stuntazz kind of outfit/situation -- post all images below in the comments section, if you can't then send entries my way to robert (dot) summa (at) destructoid (dot) com. Top winners get this Killer swag and probably some other extras. Holla!
