OK Go challange fans to create their own Rube Goldberg Machine

In celebration of the band's recent video for "This Too Shall Pass," OK Go are now challenging fans to create their own Rube Goldberg Machines! The prize? Free tickets to the band's shows. Details as follows:
Welcome to our brand new ticket giveaway contest where the winners will receive a pair of tickets to any one of the shows on our upcoming Spring tour. We’ll give away tickets to every single show for which we have submissions, including festival passes to SASQUATCH, BAMBOOZLE, BONNAROO, and HANGOUT festivals! Yes, we are giving away free, full weekend festival passes to Sasquatch, Bamboozle, Bonnaroo and Hangout!
Want a shot at winning? Simply make your own Rube Goldberg Machine, inspired by our new video for This Too Shall Pass. That’s it. The rules are simple:

* Create your own Rube Goldberg Machine that somehow spells out the words “OK Go” with its’ interactions
* Capture the action on video
* Include text in the video (written on paper? added as captions? etc) stating the name of the venue and the date of our show there
* Upload your creation as a video response to our YouTube video and tag it “okgo” and “okgomonddyyyy” (ie, for our Denver show you’d tag your video “okgo” and “okgoApr142010″)

A few times a week we’ll review the submissions and pick a winner for a particular show. We will choose one winner for every show we have qualifying submissions for, in no particular order. Winners will be notified via YouTube messenger, so be sure to check your inbox!

Remember, your machine doesn’t have to be as elaborate or large as ours! Use items you find around the house, and have fun with it. And be sure to include some text in the video stating which venue and dates you want tickets for. Otherwise how would we know?!
