I got an e-mail the other day asking if I would help publicize the release of Despicable Me 2 on Blueray by telling you all about the Twinkie Minion Makeover contest being held by Hostess. I said, “What’s in it for me?” And they said, “A very small amount of money.” And I said, “And…?” And they said, “Twinkies?” And I said, “SOLD!”
I haven’t actually had a Hostess product in about 25 years. The last one I remember having was in middle school. My class was at Prospect Park for some kind of field trip or something, and Alex (a boy who never talked to me) asked I wanted his Ding Dong. I was all, “PARDON ME, SIR!” No, I wasn’t. I was like, “Heck yeah!” So he gave me his Ding Dong (har) and then told me after I finished it that he had been sitting on it for about half an hour.
Long story short, I haven’t had a Ding Dong since that day (unlike your mom.)
So I was excited to try a Twinkie again! And I was excited to dress it up! But then I realized that I am not that creative (unlike my friend ML from I Miss You When I Blink, who did this series of images about the Cork on a Fork. Or my friend Nicole from Ninja Mom who did a piece on a Pop Culture Elf on the Shelf.) I am just not quite as brilliant as those two. Let me prove it to you:
My idea for a Twinkie Minion picture was to put some eyes and an outfit one one, and then take a picture of it halfway into my mouth. Get it? Because it’s like I’m eating a minion! But of course I am because it’s a delicious Twinkie! But then last night, just as I was getting ready to set up my photo shoot, I realized something.
I was about to post a picture of me putting something in my mouth on the internet. Within 10 minutes, someone was going to photoshop a dick in there.
I’m no dummy.
So my photo shoot is cancelled, but I encourage you to go make yours! Buy some Twinkies (you know you want to), download the accessories from the Facebook page, and let the craziness begin. Also, if you upload your Twinkie Minion to their Facebook page, you will be entered in a contest that not only has daily winners of Despicable Me 2 on BlueRay, but a grand prize that consists of a home theater system, 30 Blueray discs, and — pay attention here — A YEAR’S SUPPLY OF HOSTESS PRODUCTS.
A YEAR’S SUPPLY…OF TWINKIES. Or Ho Hos or Sno Balls or whatever floats your boat. Holy crap you will be so fat but so incredibly happy.
So go on. Git. Make some magic, people.
Have a great weekend!!!!!!
