Think you’ve got what it takes to come up with an unbelievably hilarious couch gag to open the 2013 season finale of The Simpsons? If so, better put on your thinking cap and hopefully become the one lucky Canadian to see his or her idea come to life in an actual Simpsons episode, thanks to a new contest sponsored by Global.
Starting December 5 and ending December 24, Canadian fans can submit their couch gag ideas, and these written summaries will be winnowed down to the top three, which will be posted online in January. From there, fans can vote for their favourites, with the winning entry submitted to be animated and appear during the Canadian airing of the season finale.
“We are thrilled to be bringing this exclusive contest to Global viewers,” said Jason Keown, Senior Director of Marketing, Global TV. “Canada loves The Simpsons and this is an incredible opportunity for fans to engage with the series, its creators and with one another in paying tribute to the show.”
Not only will the winner have bragging rights to an actual couch gag, but will also receive a four-day/three-night trip for two to L.A. to visit The Simpsons animation studio ,Film Roman, sit in on a table read of a Simpsons episode with the show’s cast and producers, a special prize pack and a one-of-a-kind illustration from the winning couch gag.
