Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2006
Los Angeles-based Globat.com®, the world-leader in Performance Web Hosting™, today announced that it is sponsoring a family of 3 from Schulenburg, Texas in their quest to drive 400 miles to a St. Louis, Missouri-area White Castle only to eat 100 hamburgers each.
In similar fashion to the movie, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, the participants, Terri Scott, a long time eBay’er, daughter Kerri Gomez, and Kerri’s boyfriend GW Whitfield, wanted to taste and experience the infamous Sliders so badly, that they created an auction on eBay to finance the trip. The hamburger eating marathon will kick off on May 9, 2006. Each will be required to finish all 100 hamburgers without leaving the restaurant until they do so. Throughout the trip and at the restaurant, they will be promoting Globat.com and it’s marketing Web site DefyingGravity.com by displaying the company’s logos on their vehicle, wearing temporary Globat.com tattoos, communicating through CB radio with fellow roadies and handing out Globat.com merchandise, such as t-shirts, hats and stickers.
“Talk about loving your beef! These three Texans certainly give Harold and Kumar a run for their money,” said Ben R. Neumann, President and CEO of Globat.com. “It is electrifying ideas and events such as this, we are happy to get behind to make people see that creativity is still key, and that Web hosting is not as unexciting as it might sound to some folks.”
Attracting media attention world-wide, Globat.com has recently launched a wave of very unique sponsorships and events such as a sponsored birth, and a tattooed human billboard under the banner of “Defying Gravity,” with the ultimate goal to launch at least one such special event in each of the 50 states.
