Irvine, CA — December 9, 2014— VIZIO, America’s #1 Smart TV company1, is showing fans a new way to fiesta and encouraging them to submit ideas of their own. Highlighted by the “This Is How We Fiesta” campaign featuring a series of clever game day hack videos – from a coffee table turned corn hole board, to a six-pack container transformed into a remote and snack caddy – VIZIO is simplifying game day with smart plays that enhance the football watching experience. Fans can join in on the action by submitting their own game day hack photo or video to VIZIO’s “Show Us How You Fiesta” contest. VIZIO will present the top finalists for fan voting and select a winner to receive a trip for two to the VIZIO Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ on December 31, 2014. The VIP prize package includes tickets to the game, pre-game hospitality passes, flight, accommodations and a VIZIO 50” P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV and a 42” 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar.
To enter the VIZIO “Show Us How You Fiesta,” fans can visit VIZIO.com/FiestaBowl where they can upload a creative photo or short video showing off their hacks, tips and tricks for making game day simpler and more enjoyable. By entering the contest, fans can at the same time join VIZIO Fandemonium, an online social community that allows fans to participate in a wide range of activities, including shopping on VIZIO.com, to earn points that can be redeemed for unique prizes like signed memorabilia, VIZIO products, Hulu Plus, Netflix and Pandora One subscriptions, and unique once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences. Current VIZIO Fandemonium members will earn 5,000 bonus points for their game day hack submissions.
“This year’s VIZIO Fiesta Bowl is all about a new way of celebrating game day,” said Lily Knowles, Vice President of Product Marketing. “We are showing how we fiesta with a series of smart game day hacks and want to see what clever tips and tricks fans have for making game day even better. As part of the new playoff system, the Fiesta Bowl will be a great kickoff to the new bowl game series, and we look forward to this year’s match up along with awarding the fan with the best game day hack with a trip to watch all the action in Arizona.”
VIZIO fans can upload their entries to the VIZIO Fiesta Bowl “Show Us How You Fiesta” contest now through December 15, 2014 at noon PST. A panel of judges will then select the ten most compelling entries that best convey creativity, resourcefulness and love of game day.
