Butterfinger and G4 Sending Two on a VIP Trip to SDCC 2010

Press Release:

BUTTERFINGER AND G4 ANNOUNCE NATIONWIDE SEARCH TO FIND FOURTH MEMBER FOR BUTTERFINGER® DEFENSE LEAGUE

Two Finalists to Win VIP Trip to Comic-Con, Winner Gets $20,000 and Joins Pop Culture Icons Erik Estrada, Lou Ferrigno and Charisma Carpenter as Official Butterfinger Defenders

GLENDALE, Calif. – How far would you go to defend your BUTTERFINGER®? Today, Butterfinger and G4, the television network that covers the worlds of gaming, technology, animation, interactivity, and “geek culture,” announce a promotion to find the fourth member for the Butterfinger Defense League (BFDL). Two semi-finalists who best demonstrate an ability to ensure “Nobody’s Gonna Lay A Finger On My Butterfinger!” will win a VIP trip to Comic-Con International on July 21-25. The lucky semi-finalists will meet the current members of the Butterfinger Defense League, Erik Estrada, Lou Ferrigno and Charisma Carpenter, and G4′s “Attack of the Show!” hosts Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira, during G4′s live coverage of the event.

From May 13 to June 24, viewers are encouraged to submit an audition video for the Butterfinger Defense League Challenge video contest at G4tv.com/ButterfingerDefenseLeague, spotlighting a unique ability that would make them a great defender and a perfect fit for the BFDL. Submissions will be evaluated based on creativity, technical merit, and best use of a Butterfinger to determine who would best complement the existing members. The two finalists will head to Comic-Con, where “Attack of the Show!”s Olivia and Kevin along with the BFDL members will crown one finalist an honorary member of the Butterfinger Defense League and award them a $20,000 grand prize.

“After unveiling the Butterfinger Defense League, we’re now giving consumers an opportunity to really get to know our defenders through an exclusive G4 promotion,” said Nestlé Confections & Snacks spokesperson Tricia Bowles. “Two lucky Butterfinger fans, not only will unite with Erik, Lou and Charisma, but they’ll also appear with them at the world’s largest pop culture convention, Comic-Con International.”

Estrada, Ferrigno and Carpenter, known in the TV world as famous defenders, have joined forces to help consumers defend their bars from would-be thieves and to encourage the “Nobody’s Gonna Lay A Finger On My Butterfinger!” tagline-turned-mantra. The celebrities formed the Butterfinger Defense League after connecting through the Butterfinger Bar Insurance program, where consumers reported more than 20,000 stories of Butterfinger thefts and filed 100,000 claims online for replacement candy bars.

“G4 is excited to team up with Butterfinger for this special promotion that gives our viewers the chance to win a VIP trip to Comic-Con and the grand prize of $20,000,” said Neal Tiles, president of G4. “Attack of the Show!” hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn possess an irreverent brand of comedy that resonates with young guys. This promotion gives Butterfinger the opportunity to connect with this often hard to engage audience in a way that’s fun, clever and organic to the show.

The Butterfinger Defense League Challenge video contest ends 11:59 p.m. PDT, 6/24/10, open to legal residents of the 50 US & DC, 18 or older, subject to full rules and entry requirements at G4tv.com/ButterfingerDefenseLeague.

Additionally, a retail promotion, “The Ultimate Comic-Con Experience courtesy of Butterfinger and G4,” will be promoted in 30,000 convenience and drug stores nationwide, driving consumers to ButterfingerDefenseLeague.com, where they can enter for a chance to win a trip and VIP experience at Comic-Con and other prizes. Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira will be featured on the Butterfinger store displays across the country, no purchase necessary. Game ends 11:59 p.m. EDT, 6/30/10.

In addition, G4 will present three hours of live coverage from the Comic-Con floor, beginning at 4:00pm ET/PT.

Traditionally, details surrounding Lucasfilm’s primary panel presentation are closely guarded secrets, with only 6,500 lucky on-site fans allowed access to the wealth of coveted information from a galaxy far, far away. But this year, G4 – the network that delivers all of the latest and greatest news on comic books, games, technology and pop culture – is offering TV viewers the one-of-a-kind opportunity to share the excitement with an exclusive broadcast of the panel. G4′s Attack of the Show hosts Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn will join Lucasfilm’s Steve Sansweet and a galaxy of guests from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and beyond – including supervising director Dave Filoni, and voice talent from the show – to provide an insider look at the Star Wars universe, with never-before-seen footage and a LIVE table read of an exclusive new Clone Wars script.

In addition, fans are invited to participate in the panel itself by submitting Clone Wars questions through a special G4 micro-site. Questions will be answered during the live presentation by Dave Filoni and other Clone Wars creatives!

2009′s Comic-Con International also marks another Lucasfilm milestone – the launch of the all-new Star Wars Stories Project. Fans of the Saga will have the unique opportunity to become a part of the Star Wars universe by contributing to Lucasfilm’s own historical archive. Soliciting movie memories and nostalgia, the Star Wars Stories Project invites fans to share their own tales of fandom through video testimonials. In addition to online submissions, fans will have the opportunity to record their stories at Lucasfilm’s pavilion on the Comic-Con floor.
