NBC Pushes Chuck to the “Nerd Herd” with social media rewards
Oh Chuck, I’ve missed you, but I can see myself turning on you quickly if this gets out of hand. NBC has devised a “reward points” system for promoting Chuck on Twitter, Facebook and Myspace accounts:
Join Mission: Chuck Me Out and earn points by completing daily missions and sharing the greatness of Chuck on Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace.
The Chuck Fan with the most points will win the Grand Prize – having his or her face appear in an episode during one of Chuck’s “flashes.” And each week the player who earned the most points will win a gift pack with a signed Season 2 DVD from Zachary Levi, a Chuck sweatshirt, and a Chuck messenger bag.
This kind of seems like walking into a church on Sunday and asking people if they’ve heard about Jesus.
I’m down for the weekly prizes including signed DVDs and a sweatshirt, but I’m torn on the grand prize. It’s either the coolest prize ever, or kind of weak. I mean how long do any of the single images stay on screen during one of Chuck’s flashes? Like 1/20th of a second?
If you see me on Twitter constantly talking up Chuck, it will be all about the sweatshirt.
