LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The Milton Army sets out to recruit the ultimate "Office Space" fans with a sweepstakes timed to coincide with the DVD release of "Office Space Special Edition with Flair." Mike Judge's cult classic about one man's struggle to break down the walls of his cubicle and do absolutely nothing is a must own for anyone who has ever worked for "the man." The special edition DVD release will be available November 1, 2005. The promotion comes from Fox Home Entertainment and Buzztone.
Buzztone and Fox are challenging "Office Space" fans to break out of their daily routine and bring some of the film's irreverence into the world. Milton, the hapless employee who can't get any respect and eventually burns down the office as revenge, serves as the inspiration for the sweepstakes. By creating their own Milton Army, recruits have one mission: to unite their office and assemble a force by designing and wearing Milton branded t-shirts, posting stickers, flyers and posters around their offices, spreading the Milton buzz.
Buzztone and Fox will provide the artwork to download, which has been created exclusively for the Milton Army by artist Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant Fame. After that it's up to the Army platoon to use the tools to make Milton's presence felt in the office and beyond! Each entry needs to be reported to Fox and Buzztone through photos, videos, and stories to illustrate how Milton has invaded their "Office Space."
The contest begins September 22nd and runs through October 18; enter at www.miltonarmy.com. The winning team will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the October 27 "Office Space Special Edition with Flair" DVD release event or be awarded a cash prize.
