I Want to Hold Your Hand
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2006
Think back … its 1964 and “I Want to Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles tops the music charts. Fast-forward 15 years, everyone’s humming “M-m-m-my Sharona.” And while no one wants to admit he or she actually danced the “Macarena,” they did and made it a number one song in 1996. In more than four decades, taste in music has changed and to celebrate its 42nd birthday, Blimpie® is searching for America’s favorite song from the past 42 years.
Consumers can visit http://www.blimpie.com, between April 4 and April 30, 2006, to vote online for their favorite #1 song from the past 42 years. This site will go live April 4. The three most popular “Hot Classic” songs will be shown online in real-time, so voters know if their favorite song rates highest. Visitors can vote for their favorite classic song and create delicious memories by experiencing the newest Blimpie ‘Hot Classic’ sandwiches.
The Hot Classics line-up features traditional Blimpie hot sub favorites with a contemporary ‘twist’ –Meatball Parmigiana, Peppercorn Steak and Grilled Chicken Marinara. All three of these sandwiches are formulated to contain zero grams of trans fat and can be ordered on the new whole grain wheat bread, or any of the other fresh-baked artisan breads offered by Blimpie.
Those who visit the website to vote also will have an opportunity to join the Blimpie Important Person (B.I.P.) Club. One lucky new B.I.P. registrant will be selected at random to win a year’s supply of Blimpie sandwiches. In addition, a free Blimpie will be awarded to 42 second prize winners.
