Viral Contest Underway To Become "Repo Men"

To correspond with the upcoming movie "Repo Men," Universal Studios has launched a nationwide contest unlike anything that has been seen before. Everyone in the country is tasked with finding one of four "Runners," mysterious people who are trying to evade capture.

Along the way, various clues will be given as to the Runners' whereabouts, but in this game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are high. If a Runner lasts a month without being caught, he or she wins $10,000.

However, if someone in America is able to catch one, that pursuer will win $7,500.

The contest is a viral promotion for "Repo Men," a futuristic thriller where people are sent to hunt down people who have had organ transplants but are failing to make payments on the new organs.

To help spread the word and make the contest as viral as possible, Universal Pictures has team up with Wired. "This contest gives the Wired community a chance to interact with emerging technologies that challenge privacy in the digital age, a subject we explore often within our pages," said the publication's vice president Howard Mittman.

Potential Repo Men can find out all the contest details at Wired.com/repomen.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
