Man Uses Social Media To win Holiday By Licking Apple iPad

Here at OSM we like to bring you all the latest news from the world of social media, we have previously brought you such things as, the burglar who uploaded pictures of himself on his victims Facebook page and the man who used social networking to stop a robbery.

To lighten the mood up and not report about crime we thought we would bring you this latest story, which involved a man who managed to win himself a holiday by licking an Apple iPad, this rather bizarre incident managed to secure the guy first place in a competition that was being run by Socialcam.

Sociacam who is the official mobile app of justin.tv run this competition during the recent SXSW event, according to Mashable the rules were very straight forward, participants simply had to film themselves using this app performing one of these three tasks, perform your best dance move, do a barrel roll or lick something weird.

The winner of the competition Samuel Yu choose the third task of licking something weird and soon made his way to his local Apple store, it’s here where he shot his winning video which you can see below.

For this few seconds of bizarre footage Samuel was handed first prize which consisted of an all expenses paid trip to a private island in Fiji, with a prize like this up for grabs we wonder what kind of videos we would be seeing if the participants tasks weren’t predefined.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you have done something better to scoop this prize?
