Tips from Tyson on how your pup can be the next ambassadoggy!

AMBASSADOG-for-web-921x526

So, the guys over at M-Net Movies Family are running a competition to find South Africa’s most fancy dog. When i first heard about this competition i was confused to be honest – because we all know that my Bulldog Tyson is the king of being fabulous. Right?

Apparently not. Apparently there are more fancy dogs out there. Say WHAT!?

Then i though to myself, maybe this is the perfect opportunity to let another dog shine, a chance for Tyson to inspire other dogs around South Africa. To take some of those positive vibes from M-Net Movies Family and share them with you and your furry friends. I got Tyson to share a few tips below, for those of you looking to enter the M-Net Movies Ambassadoggy competition.

1. It doesn’t matter where you go, what matters is that you go there in a convertible.

2. As an English Bulldog, sometimes you have to work a little harder to blend into SA.

3. If you’re struggling to blend in, try a disguise. Possibly an Engrish Bulldog?

4. If you (as a dog) get invited to a kids party you should hide!

5. Not hiding leads to this…

6. Claim any bed, bought for any animal in the house, no matter the size.

It’s no secret how much I love my bulldog, none at all.

But what this campaign has taught me is that there are other crazy dog people, just like me, out there in SA!

Don’t believe me? Check out this video made by Derick Watts and the Sunday Blues. This marked the launch of the ambassadoggy campaign.

 

So if you have a dog that has what it takes to be adorable, entertaining and adventurous, help him or her become an Ambassadoggy! M-Net Movies wants to see your pooch showing off its personality to stand a chance to be the face of M-Net Movies Family. The contest gives your dog the opportunity of a lifetime, not to mention the unbelievable prizes up for grabs for you. Whilst you walk your doggy along the path of fame, you could win big! A flat screen TV, a DStv Explora decoder and a pampering voucher for your pooch. The runner up will win a DStv Explora decoder.

Having an awesome dog is something I’m no stranger to, obviously, and I am so keen to see how other dogs handle the spotlight. As a member of the judging panel, we have the enviable task of going through all of the entries and narrowing them down to our top five. After we have a top five, the public gets a chance to get in on the action by voting who they think is the cutest, smartest and most entertaining furry best friend to be the face of the channel.

So what are you waiting for? Enter your dog here and prepare to be the proud owner of a real life ambassadoggy!

The grand prize winner will be announced on 27 May 2015, and be required to be available for a session with the Puparazzi and to sign pawtographs from the following week.

Facebook integrates Whats App into Facebook for Android

For the Android bunnies. Like me 😉

This is an interesting, but predictable play. Taking content into a private space will change the way advertisers look at online marketing.

I love the pace of the Facebook development team. Always something new on the go.

How much are our favourite social Superheroes Tweets worth?

Being a celebrity geek isn’t easy. Being a social Superhero is even harder. Some of our favourite TV, Movie and internet friends have incredible Twitter accounts. Even though us, as fans, are particularly hard on our online Superheroes. Watching their every Tweet. Waiting for something to pounce on. I guess it’s the price you pay to be an internet hero hey?

The question is, how much would people actually pay. I was messing around online last night and decided to compare some of our favourite geek profiles on the Webfluential Influence Estimator. If you’re reading this blog i’m sure you know the likes of Will Wheaton, Batman himself, Stan Lee, The Mary Sue and even Tony Stark.

Lets run a little comparison and see what the price of social superhero life really is?

Stan Lee and Will Wheaton are cleaning up. Guess thats the value of being the real person behind the Twitter account.

You can estimate your own value by visiting Webfluential.com and using the estimator tool.

Technology makes for good internet hey 😉
