We hope you enjoyed our first (and let’s face it, probably only) ever Back to the Future week here at The Smoking Jacket. All week long we’ve been cranking out Back to the Future themed features to celebrate the long awaited Blu-Ray release of the classic time traveling trilogy.
Speaking of that, in case you missed it, we’re giving away a bunch of copies of the Back to the Future Trilogy Blu-Ray. The giveaway closes today, so hurry up and enter if you haven’t already. If you remember our intro to Back to the Future week that we posted, you know, earlier this week, we mentioned another giveaway that was coming later in the week. Keep reading for all the details about that and a look at some of the highlights from this week’s tribute to Back to the Future.
Hercules XPS 5.1 70 Slim Multimedia Speaker System Giveaway
We’ve got one more giveaway to handle before Back to the Future week ends, and it’s a good one. We’re giving one lucky reader a Hercules XPS 5.1 70 Slim Multimedia Speaker System. This top of the line speaker system is designed to blend in nicely with any living room while still delivering all the power of a much larger eyesore of a surround sound system. It’s compatible with everything from televisions to mp3 players and the center speaker even comes with a handy mounting system that allows it to sit comfortably atop your flat screen.
So how do you win? It’s easy. Kind of. All week long we’ve been slipping subtle references and shout outs to Back to the Future in some of our articles. The first reader to successfully spot all the references and list them in the comments section of this article will be swimming in surround sound goodness.
To make thing even easier, we’re doing half the work for you. Below are the articles where Back to the Future gets at least some sort of minor nod somewhere. Can you spot them all? If so, let us know and the speakers are yours. Is it a little bit of work? Sure, if you consider reading heavy lifting then, yes, it is. But who knows, maybe you’ll be the only damn person who does it! Won’t all those other lazy sacks feel like fools when you’re walking away with a spanking new speaker system for your few minutes of moderately difficult work!
