I'm canning the Resurrection can contest

Looks like my Resurrection photo contest idea was too hot for The Sun.

After a series of intense, brow-furrowing debates with The Baltimore Sun Legal Department, our cadre of lawyers has advised us to nix the contest. ...

You see, if some idiot decided to get a photo of a can of Resurrection inside the shark tank at the National Aquarium and was accidentally devoured, his relatives could theoretically sue us -- and they just might win. God bless the American legal system.

Sorry folks. Thanks for (not) playing (yet). Heh.

First we kill all the lawyers.

what am i supposed to do with this picture of my buddy shotgunning a can of resurrection whilst driving the wrong way down the two way span of the bay bridge? it was the winner for certain.

I'd like to propose to you a Resurrection can photoSHOP contest.

I can see it now: Duchess Fergie drinking Rezzie while peddling influence. Joe Flacco hurling a can from the 40 yard line. The male/female statue replaced with a giant can of Resurrection.

Lawyers, guns, and money. Resurrection has hit the can!!

this idea can't go to waste. i give you "wheresresurrection(cans)":

ryan970u that could become a spinoff of Bros Icing Bros.

corey -

ha. i'm still convinced that's a genius viral campaign by smirnoff ice.

this game would be called brosrezziebros -

the simple rule would be to secretly replace resurrections with what people would be expecting to be miller light, et. al. examples: flip cup, beer pong, funnels, shotguns, etc.

take pics of it, and the aftermath

instead of bros icing bros

bros resurrecting bros

you've been resurrected!!!

if someone can get me a slightly hi-res picture of a resurrection can i'll take this thing to the n'th degree.

A Baltimore canned beer thats actually made in Baltimore?! Preposterous!

Any sightings of the 6-pack yet?

Wondering where I can go to find it in the Mt. Vernon area.

Tony D- no sightings yet, I am sure somebody will post it when it comes available. I've been calling my Bond rep, lovely Amy, everyday, and she still doesn't know. I am thinking about having a tasting the day it comes out.

Sorry, Nikc, it's contract brewed and canned for us at Sly Fox in Royersford, PA, albeit under the watchful eye of brewery chief Steve Frazier, a Baltimore City resident.

I hope you told the lawyers that it's the little stuff like this that is killing the print industry.

How can they expect you to be sucessful in your foray into new media if they can a simple contest like this.

Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby introduce the Resurrection Photoshop Can Contest.
