Do you have an ugly TV? I’m not talking about one that distorts Evangeline Lilly or makes Christina Hendricks look flat chested. If that sounds like your TV, you might have a Poltergeist issue. Instead, I mean those ones that look like a severe wire hazard, ones that could catch ablaze at a moment’s notice and take out three surrounding neighborhoods.
If that sounds like your hot mess, ZVOX may actually have a prize for you. The company just kicked off an “Ugly TV” contest.
In case you aren’t familiar with ZVOX, the company has made quite a name for itself creating single-wire products. Get it? So if you’ve got a nest that could be housing a family of squirrels, ZVOX wants to see it and possibly give you a ZVOX Z-Base 550 home theater system to solve your cable clutter problem.
Designed to fit under your flat-panel TV, this $400 product produces awesome surround sound from a single cabinet. It even has a built-in subwoofer to handle your bass needs. Nothing else is needed. It’s got one cord and a one-page user’s manual. It is truly the definition of plug-and-play. It’s also the definition of pretty cool. I certainly wouldn’t mind having one of these — and free is certainly a very nice price.
The ZVOX website already has some pretty “interesting” contest entries that you can check out. If you think your TV area is disgusting enough to take home the prize, email a pic to [email protected] with “Ugly TV Contest” in the subject line. The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2010.
