The Union Needs You: Repo Men Required

by Iain Welford

If you have been following the Repo Men viral, you’ll know that Wired held an open application for runners to go undercover and evade the Repo Men for one month to win a cash prize of $7,500.

The runners have now been selected and there are only 2 days left before their payments run out. If you head over to the site you’ll find a timer counting down to when the chase begins.

Although applications for runners have been finalized, there is still an opportunity to join in the hunt posing as a Repo Man. The opportunity to apply will be available soon, and if the previous contest held by Wired is anything to look at, it will be worth following.

In the last contest the goal was to find Evan, one of Wired’s staff writers, and clues were hidden all over New York – including the New York Times crossword. It’s important to note that only registered Repo Men can take part, so keep watching for the rules and apply for what promises to be a great ARG contest.

We want to know if anyone has been selected as a runner or a Repo Man. Leave your comments below if you have been successful. Good luck to all the participants and we’ll be sure to post updates when we get them.
