Now that the prizes are safely in the hands of the winners of the August #ColumboTV Twitter event, here’s what they won!
Greg McCambley won a copy of an ABC promotional photo of Peter Falk and Robert Culp from Culp’s fourth Columbo outing (however, he is not the murderer) “Columbo Goes to College” (1990).
Neal Maidment won a vintage copy of the 1973 Mad Magazine featuring the spoof “Clodumbo” with “Dr. Robert Culpable.”
Congratulations once again fellas!
Believe me folks, it wasn’t easy to pick a winner from each #ColumboTV viewing event. There were hundreds of tweets and a lot of folks are pretty good at dropping good one liners at 140 characters or less.
But here they are! The wining tweets (and honorable mentions) for each event.
Saturday – 8/17
Winner: @nealmaidment So Robert Culp do you come here often to sexily sit in the pumpkin display?
Honorable: @patrickdijusto It’s so obvious that the culprit was Dr. Mustard-Jacket, in the lobby, with the pistol.
Sunday – 8/18
Winner: @GregMcCambley Is it murder, or is is Memorex?
Honorable: @HollHox You know I did it, I know I did it, I know you know I did it, let’s call the whole thing off.
Congrats to the winners and mentions! Winners will each receive a unique Culp/Columbo prize. (I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll reveal what the prizes were once the winners have receive them. Yes, really!).
Again, thanks to all who participated and made both events a lot of fun!
The “Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun, Double Exposure” #ColumboTV events this past weekend (August 17th and 18th) on Twitter I think was a resounding success! Stats are still being sorted out, but my estimates approximately 18 folks took part in the Saturday event with another 12 folks on Sunday. The Saturday event saw a few die hard Columbo fans in the UK staying up (or getting up) at midnight to watch and tweet and the hashtag #ColumboTV trended briefly catching the attention of a couple of trend watch-bots on Twitter. There were hundreds of tweets during both events and I’m still – STILL! – sorting through to pick the best tweet from each and award prizes. I’ll notify winners via DM on Twitter. If you took part in either event make sure you follow me so I can contact you!
And a thanks to all who participated! A great cap on the weekend for what would have been Robert Culp’s 83rd birthday.
