SumoSac and $100, 3 of 20 2008-07-02 12:07:33 Reply

Chris Kempt recently did some work with the guys at Sumo, and in return had the opportunity for a free SumoSac. Rather than make the guys spring for shipping to Europe, Chris told them to send it to us! We had no idea it was coming, so it was a huge surprise when this massive THING arrived at the office... It looked like a tractor tire in a duffel bag. We had to roll it up the stairs and down the hall before cutting the ties and figuring out what was inside.

If you remember, Sumo sent us an Omni cushion in exchange for a plug back in 2006.

The guys LOVE the SumoSac (it's huge) and we thought it would be cool to have a few more, so I contacted Sumo and asked for SIX more sacs in exchange for a bunch of plugs. Yesterday, the sacs arrived! They are totally worth checking out and I'll be plugging them over the next 18 days leading up to Comic-Con. If you aren't aware, I'm posting DAILY until I leave for Comic-Con on July 20th, and to make it interesting we're giving out $100 per day. To participate in the raffle, all you need to do is vote on five submissions while logged in. Every day I run a raffle script based on activity from the previous day, and a winner is declared!

Today's $100 winner is Evark, who happens to be a mod! Speaking of mods, the Mod Meat was this past weekend. I'll be posting more about that in one of my upcoming daily posts.

In other news, I've made a secondary version of the Bytesize player and put it in the Portal, along with some new Bytesize submissions. This player skips the news bytes and runs at twice the size, for an enhanced viewing experience!

Here's a pic of the Sumo Sacs! I was trying to re-create a scene from House of 1000 Cats, which was re-creating a scene from this edited Pico Day pre-loader.

What!? Damn you Evan! Damn you for not going to the Meat, and damn you for winning, lmao.

Proof that the SumoSacs are ultra-comfy:

I ALMOST passed him over to avoid suspicion, but then I figured mods deserve $100 just as much as everyone else, if not MORE.

Haha it seems life at the NG office is so exciting that even with daily posts you manage to have something new and interesting to say each time.

Also I have no idea why the thought of you giving away 100 dollars a day makes me feel like I am capable of winning something more so than it does on the monthly basis. I'm guessing the odds are particularly low considering the amount of people who deposit daily.

Looking forward to the next post ;)

Yes, he actually paid $200 just to win the $100 and get his name in the news post.

Oh yeah, also... rewatching those Bytesized yesterday really made me want to make one. I dunno why I never got around to making them when it first came out...

Now if only I can think of something short and funny...

HA, I knew it. Excuse me, while I retreat to my basement to make conspiracy theories about how Evark is planning to take over Newgrounds step by step!

Those huge sumo sacks look awesome. Is there a way for us to get them? Like, are you able to buy them on their website? If not, you should give one of them out as a special price for the best submission on pico day or something.
