    Friday Challenge 8/16/2013 - Gingham Style!



    To get more participation this week, the theme is simple - Gingham. You can wear a gingham shirt, tie, whatever you want as long as you incorporate gingham in to your outfit. And if you make a video of yourself wearing your Gingham outfit while dancing to Gangnam style, you get bonus points and most likely clinch the win.



    The usual rules:

    1.) A challenge is proposed (typically on a Monday, unless the poster is a slacker, in which case the wee hours of Tuesday morning will just have to suffice).
    2.) Ideas are bounced around throughout the week, any questions are codified, and guidelines are put into place.
    3.) On Friday (or before), everyone dresses according to the challenge's parameters.
    4.) On Saturday, all challengers are recorded and voting opens to see who best represents the challenge.
    5.) A winner is chosen by majority vote on Sunday, and the winner is responsible for choosing the next week's challenge.

        Good one, Vicious. Like you said, it should definitely open the gates for more participation. Hope so!

        BTW, that freakin' video has 1,732,669,261 (ok, 1,732,669,262 *now*) hits? Jeezsh!

          Are you telling me you have never seen the video before?

            LOL! No-no-no.. of *course* I have. With a 9 y.o. son and a 7 y.o. daughter, I have had no choice in the matter.

            Obviously it's been a huge cultural phenomenon of sorts too - so yeah, I've seen it man. I guess I just never noticed the number of hits before. Yeeeeeeeee....!

            Checking the rankings on youtube, all-time/all-categories, it has nearly twice as many hits as the #2 vid (Bieber's "Baby"). That's insane!

            What's even more insane is that I actually took the time to check that stat.

              I believe it's the most viewed YouTube video of all time.

              Also, I'm in for this one.

                Presently I really only have two good gingham items. Here's one of 'em... for your consideration:

                Jacket: JCF
                Shirt: BR
                Belt: LE (thrifted)
                Chinos: Dockers
                Socks: BR
                Shoes: Florsheim
                Watch: Skagen
                Scent: Lacoste

                Gotta post early, as I'll be away from the PC the rest of the week. But I should still be able to vote, and I'll check-in via the cellllll-phonnnnne here and there to check out the grandiose ginghamness which most surely shall abound.

                  I actually only have one gigham item with me for the summer, but I am bound and determined to finally get a submission/vote in, so watch out! I mean, seriously, be ready! There's... going... to be some real competition from me. Really. I can totally compete with the rest of you. T...totally.

                    Right on bruschetta, I've been telling this to myself for years!

                        I wore gingham today, but I don't think that my outfit was champion Seoul-lady-catching material.

                        (Tan Ngo wore the same outfit better than me. Back to the drawing board.)
