The age of the selfie has officially reached new heights. If you’ve ever looked up towards the sky and thought, “Man, I would look really good up there,” you’re going to want to enter this contest. Thanks to a promotion from South African airline Kulula Airways, you can submit a photo of your face and potentially have it emblazoned across the side of one of the airline’s planes.
The winners will have have the joy of seeing their face stretched to almost 40 feet, a feat that is sure to draw attention not only to those boarding the plane but to anyone who witnesses it take off or land. The faces will remain on the plane for at least one week, according to a statement from the airline, and the winners of the contest will be the six entrants who submit the “funniest, silliest and wackiest faces.”
If you’re feeling a bit insecure about what your mug would look like on the side of a plane, have no fear — prior to submitting you can view a rendering of the final product. If you aren’t satisfied with what you see, just start the process over again.
Opportunities like this are rare for us everyday narcissists that can’t afford to pay to have our likeness on everything. In that light, major props to Kulula for this dose of high-flying, out-of-the-box thinking. The budget airline flies to destinations throughout southern Africa, meaning that if you win you’ll also be a recognized celebrity in Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and Mauritius.The contest isn’t limited to South African residents, either. Anyone over the age of 18 can enter, as long as they get their submission in by the April 30 deadline.
