Oh, the irony!  Where’s Alanis Morissette when you really need her?

First, a big hug and thumbs up to Coast Body Wash for putting on a contest in the first place and backing it up with a 20k first prize.  Although, it is somewhat odd that a contest dubbed “Make Me Famous!” would award one of the most famous freestyle skiers on the planet: Tom Wallisch.

A shortened version of Wallisch and Simon Dumont’s Team America clip for Jon Olsson’s Super Sessions was entered into the contest.  A few minutes of editing time (just taking out Simon’s part) resulted in another 20k for Mr. Wallisch.  Sly move, guys…

Make me famous?  Well, Coast just needed to write the check and call it a day.  Tom Wallisch is already super famous.  Perhaps, they should have dubbed the contest, “Make Me Famous in Fiji!”  I’m pretty sure Fijians aren’t hip to Tom Wallisch.
