    There have been some annoying contests in the past but this one takes the cake. On the plus side, I can't see many people entering more than once. I strongly recommend turning off your sound if you value your sanity.

    https://contest.aircanada.com/wintheworld/

    Here are the details:

    Air Canada is your springboard to the world, and never more so than right now. Our Win the World contest is back and better than ever: there are over 3,000 instant prizes and eleven Grand Prizes up for grabs.

    Between April 5 and May 8, 2011, play the Win the World online game and you could win one of 3,000 instant prizes, including fare discounts of up to 50% anywhere Air Canada flies, Avis®, Budget® single upgrades and Delta Hotels and Resorts certificates, Maple Leaf™ Lounge passes and up to 100,000 Bonus Aeroplan® Miles.

    When you register, you'll also be automatically eligible to participate to the grand draw. Plus, register from your mobile device and get an additional chance to win one of eleven Grand Prizes in our May 20, 2011 draw:

    It's not as entertaining as the prior one. There was an option to enter the contest directly, so you may be able to bypass the Cirque d'Air Canada moments.

    Good lord. Can't I just enter a contest without watching a cheesy movie first?

    I didn't even open that email. So no, I didn't enter the contest website at all.

    Okay, got sucked in and persevered through the whole thing. Annoying isn't the word for this one...

    Like others, I won't be bothering to enter again. I have much better things to do with my time -- like hang out on MP!! ;)

    WORST GAME EVER

    WTH, clunky, tried looking for the fast forward button but could not find one. Part 1 and 2 to enter info and 5 agonizing parts to find out whether you win or not!

  14. Only 100K points? Wasn't the original version 1M points?

    Anyways, not bothering with this one.

    It's pretty dire - in fact, not even pretty.

    Total waste of bandwidth, tells you nothing (what ARE their underlying messaging points with all that? I lost any inclination to pay attention after about 10 seconds, muted the sound and let it wibble along in its own tab, switched back when I had to actually do something).

  18. Again you really have to wonder how marketing can not do some limited testing with these programs first?
    Amazing how bad this is.
    However i am sure an AC loyalist will again tell us how great this promo is:eek:

    I said it before I will say it again, what an annoying POS.
    The only thing missing is "Ola Maria".

    It was the fact that Maria held us hostage before the movies.... ;)
