    In an effort to protect the childhood dreams of millions of video gamers everywhere, the makers of Stride gum announced today that they are launching a special campaign supporting the efforts of StopUweBoll.org in their attempt to convince famed film director Uwe Boll to stop making video game-based films. In an effort to help boost signings, the makers of Stride have put out a special bounty. If the petition reaches the required 1 million signatures by May 14 at 5pm EDT, each signer will receive a digital coupon* for a pack of gum, downloadable on May 23, 2008, a day that could really use some long-lasting refreshment, particularly as it will see the debut of his latest videogame-based film.

    Press Release

    The Makers of Stride, The Ridiculously Long Lasting Gum(R), Offer A Total
    of One Million Packs of Gum to Signers of the Anti-Uwe Boll Petition*

    In an effort to protect the childhood dreams of millions of video gamers everywhere, the makers of Stride gum announced today that they are launching a special campaign supporting the efforts of StopUweBoll.org in their attempt to convince famed film director Uwe Boll to stop making video game-based films.

    For years, Boll has piqued the ire of the gaming community by adapting
    many of their favorite games into universally panned films
    (Uwe Boll - Rotten Tomatoes Celebrity Profile). On April 4, 2008, Boll remarked to legendary horror site FearNet that he'd consider acquiescing to his critics and abandoning making films in this genre if an online petition reached one million signatures. As of press time, the petition is just about 234,000 names, which is why Stride has decided to jump in.

    "Since gamers are one of our most supportive groups, we've been looking
    for ways to return the favor," said Gary Osifchin, Stride North American
    Marketing Director. "And what better way is there to get gamers' backs than by helping them rescue their cherished videogames from the clutches of Uwe Boll?"

    In an effort to help boost signings, the makers of Stride have put out
    a special bounty. If the petition reaches the required 1 million signatures by May 14 at 5pm EDT, each signer will receive a digital coupon* for a pack of gum, downloadable on May 23, 2008, a day that could really use some long-lasting refreshment, particularly as it will see the debut of his latest videogame-based film.

    "Look, it's nothing personal against the guy. Maybe his non
    videogame-based films are unbelievable! But we've seen such intense passion for this cause that we couldn't help but get involved," said Osifchin. "Let the signing continue."

    * Stride will provide a downloadable coupon (good for one pack of gum) to each petition signer that will be downloadable on May 23, 2008, if the target of one million signatures is reached between May 7 and 14, 2008.

    Ha, they're giving us a week, lets sign for free gum and no more bollcrap.

    It's movies based on video games not video games based on movies. Flip it around. But you're still right.
