If you have 13 minutes or longer today to watch a video of smoke and meat, you could win prizes from Arby’s including $1,300 in cash.
The Arby’s 13-Hour Smoked Brisket Contest features a 13-hour commercial streaming online from 9 this morning to 10 tonight of a brisket being smoked. When I watched at the two-hour mark, there was nothing but meat and smoke.
You have to watch for a pop-up box. I saw one that said, “Ooh. A prize.” but I wasn’t quick enough to click on it before it disappeared and I had to wait until another popped up saying, “Puff. Puff. Prize.” If you do click in time, you then have to correctly answer a brisket trivia question (mine was about how many minutes there are in 13 hours). You only have a minute to both answer and type in your name and e-mail address to be entered to try to win a prize.
The site says there’s a pop-up at least every 13 minutes. I saw two about 7 minutes apart, which was good because I don’t know how much longer I could have watched and I doubt I’ll be going back. While the cash and other prizes, which appear to include $13 Arby’s gift cards, would be nice, I have better things to do with my time today.
