Lou Ferrigno Calls Upon Americans to Get Tough On Their Computers
Crucial.com and Tough Guy Lou Ferrigno Invite Frustrated Computer Users to
“Roar” at Their Screens to Compete to Win a Grand Prize of $5,000
BOISE, Idaho -- June 7, 2013
Determined to put an end to the seemingly endless cycle of computer
frustration and anxiety that plagues the everyday lives of so many Americans,
Crucial.com has joined forces with bona fide tough guy and recovering
frustrated computer user, Lou Ferrigno, to help Americans get tougher on their
computers this summer.
Beginning June 7, 2013 through August 16, 2013, all frustrated computer users
are invited to visit toughoncomputers.com and submit a short video, 30 seconds
or less, depicting their most fearsome, frustration-filled, computer-induced
roar. A five-person judging panel including marketing professionals, judges
from Crucial.com, and Lou Ferrigno himself will carefully review all video
submissions according to the following criteria: volume, enthusiasm, as well
as perceived distress, frustration, anxiety, irritation, and overall
hopelessness. The entry with the most frightening computer-induced roar as
determined by Lou and the other judges will be awarded $5,000. The judges will
select two runners-up who will each receive a complimentary computer memory
upgrade courtesy of Crucial.com, with a retail value up to $200. The winners
must sign a release to allow Crucial.com to publicly display the winning
videos online. No purchase is necessary to enter.
“Computers can bully us. A slow and unreliable system will bring even the
toughest soul to their knees as they find themselves completely defenseless
against the erratic whims of their rogue machine,” said Lou Ferrigno. “As a
recovering frustrated computer user myself, I have seen computers cause much
agony and pain, and it’s about time for all Americans to stop being victimized
by their computers.”
Think you’ve got the nation’s most frightening computer-induced roar of
frustration? Visit ToughOnComputers.com and submit a 30-seconds or less video
that shows Lou just how frustrated you are at your computer by using your
loudest, most fearsome, spine-tingling roar. Also, be sure to check out how an
experienced “roarer” like Lou Ferrigno overcame his computer frustrations.
“It is absolutely stunning how many of us find ourselves completely at the
mercy of an underperforming computer. We place an enormous amount of trust in
our computers both at work and at home, and when they fail to deliver, the
feelings of helplessness, panic and frustration are so deeply maddening that
we often have no other recourse but to let it all out from the bottom of our
lungs,” said Roddy McLean, Crucial.com e-Commerce Marketing Manager.
“Amazingly, a lot of the common computer problems that cause great amounts of
frustration are simply due to insufficient system memory and can be quickly
and easily fixed with a do-it-yourself memory upgrade. It really is about time
that we take control and show our computers who’s boss here.”
