International Federation of Snowball Throwing Giveaway

I don't know about you but I just love the Olympics! I can not wait until Friday's Opening Ceremonies.

And I just found out about another fun way to celebrate the Olympics. And that is with a fun blog run by Coca-Cola. It is the International Federation of Snowball Throwing.

Coca-Cola is running an online parody campaign called the ‘International Federation of Snowball Throwing’ designed to generate excitement for the upcoming Olympics and promote TCCC’s Olympic sponsorship in an unexpected way. The “IFST” campaign is built around their global television commercial called “Snowball” which features representatives from different countries participating in a spontaneous snowball fight.

As part of the program, Coca-Cola created a fictional governing body called the International Federation of Snowball Throwing and hired an actor to serve as the IFST President.

The IFST is an “organization” created to rally support from citizens of the world who love throwing snowballs and want to see snowball throwing added to the Olympics. The IFST supports snowball throwing in various forms, including individual accuracy competitions, team events and even competitions with ‘fake’ snow. Any competition involving a handmade ball made of soft, crystallized precipitation is recognized as an official sport by the International Federation of Snowball Throwing. Skill levels ranging from world-class athletes to anyone who loves to throw things are welcome.

While visiting the International Federation of Snowball Throwing why not sign the petition to get snowball throwing recognized as an official sport.

Win IT: Three (3) lucky winners will each receive an International Federation of Snowball Throwing T-Shirt and a 2008 Collector's Edition Coca-Cola Bottle Set from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
