SF Treasure Hunt for Mr DJ

A couple of days ago i attended David Jay's Free to Succeed Tour in San Francisco. As part of the tour they have been creating a treasure hunt type of game in each city they stop in and gifting $500 of Showit Products to the winner. Oh, and by the way you have to videotape yourself trying to find it! Basically they videotape and hide one of their small characters, more like big heads (made of paper cutouts) of either DJ or Jasmine. They then place the video on DJ's blog and the race is on for the first person to find it. I thought they would release it the following night of the event and waited anxiously that night til my clock passed midnight and i called it a night. The next day i noticed no news on the blog and started to forget about it as i went about my day. Later that night before settling in for a movie i noticed it was up. I was bummed as i noticed it was posted five hours ago! I watched the video and quickly knew where they had hid it, either The Cheesecake Factory on Union Square or the Chancellor Hotel. Unfortunately it was already 10:30pm and the Cheesecake Factory closed in 30 minutes, not enough time to get there and maybe someone might have claimed it already. I then planned on driving in the next morning at 11am when the Cheesecake Factory restaurant opened.

So yesterday morning i once again checked the blog for any signs of the Mr DJ head being claimed by a local photographer. Heck, there was 150 people at the show and figured someone that lived much closer than me was all over it! Well, you can't win if you don't play the game so i was off driving to SF to claim my price. See the video below for the results, a bit long but my first foray into video editing, gotta say i love iMovie and Mac products, so easy to use. As Jasmine would put it, "i rocked the template!"



Winner!

Can't wait to claim my prize and create myself a totally unique website with the amazing Showit Sites! Thanks to Jasmine & Paul for the fun treasure hunt and of course many thanks to the man behind it all, David Jay!
