Pete Wentz, Cheeseheads Hit the Road for ‘MB Tweet Race’

Tomorrow morning, four Mercedes-Benz vehicular teams, each featuring a pair of drivers and “celebrity coach,” will depart for Dallas from LA, Chicago, New York and Tampa. It’s all part of an ingenious Twitter-follow Super Bowl contest put on by the car manufacturer.

The LA team features singer Pete Wentz (@petewentz) and a pair of Green Bay Packer fans, Todd Sanders (@tsand) and John Pederson (@ijohnpederson) (pictured), who actually met through Twitter. At the end of the February 2nd-4th event, which also has a charity component, a follower of the winning team will be randomly selected for a Grand Prize along with 20 others:

Each Twitter race team will select two winners from those participants who have joined their team and the race director (@MbtweetraceHQ) will select twelve additional winners. Winners will be those participants that have tweeted the most plentiful, creative and timely tweets.

E! Puts Another Nail in Journalism Coffin

We know it’s not hard these days to find discouraging signs of erosion in the journalism profession. But a new contest being sponsored by Comcast and CIROC Vodka has put us in a foul holiday season mood.

Five lucky winners will get to be E! on-air correspondents this New Year’s Eve, co-hosting the festivities from Las Vegas (with Sean Combs), Miami (Kourtney Kardashian), Vail (Taryn Manning), Chicago (Pete Wentz) and New York (TBA). TBA stands for To Be Announced, not some rad new rapper.

Jossip Takes on Huffpo Celebrity Bloggers

Cord Jefferson at Jossip names a couple of real stinkers Jermaine Dupri, Tim Robbins, Paul Reiser, Casey Gane-McCalla and of course Pete Wentz.

Jefferson writes:

Tragically, HuffPo, once a fountainhead for interesting, angry liberal opinions, is fast becoming the Hollywood club of news blogs: everyone’s invited, but the celebrities have the run of the place. And boy are they ruining it.

And…

While we can’t disagree with much of what Gane-McCalla has to say – Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly are idiot bigots – it’s a little hard to take discussions about racism seriously from a guy of color whose most famous song is a celebration of humping white women. Sample lyric: “You and me baby can start making up for slavery.”

Ha! Do more! There’s WAY more than just five dumb celebrity bloggers on Huffpo – that could be a daily feature…on somewhere besides Huffpo. Ahem.
