Just post a picture of you high-fiving (your friends, your mom, your dog – whatever), and we’ll announce our favorite on Thursday
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Moo & Oink is hosting a contest today titled “How Do You High-Five?” on its Facebook page in honor of National High-Five Day, Thursday, April 18. The contest promotes Moo & Oink’s popular High-Five BBQ Sauce.
Participants are asked to take a photo of themselves showcasing how they high-five and post the photo to the official Moo & Oink Facebook page. Photo submissions will be accepted for consideration from on Thursday, April 18.
“Just post a picture of you high-fiving (your friends, your mom, your dog – whatever), and we’ll announce our favorite on Thursday,” state the official Facebook instructions.
The winning high-fiver will receive a case of Moo & Oink’s sought-after High-Five BBQ Sauce and a limited edition Moo & Oink T-shirt.
While nobody knows who invented the high five, rumor has it that a man named Lamont Sleets popularized the gesture. Sleets grew up in Kentucky where his father’s old army friends greeted each other by extending their arms straight up in the air and saying the name of their division: “Five.” Sleets had trouble remembering the names of all his father’s friends, so instead he would just say “Hi, Five!” This childhood greeting soon became the way he greeted everyone. NBA player Derek Smith also claimed he created the high five while playing basketball for the University of Louisville in 1979.
