The Week Contest
This week’s question: The luxury Fyre Festival was canceled recently after music lovers who had paid up to $50,000 for opulent accommodations and celebrity-chef meals in the Bahamas turned up to find a tent city on a trash-strewn beach—and no performers. If a musician were to write a song about the disastrous festival, what should the track be titled?
Last week’s contest: The high-end retailer Nordstrom was widely ridiculed after it started selling $425 jeans that come caked with fake mud, to make it look like the wearer was prepared “to get down and dirty.” If Nordstrom were to launch a new line of pre-dirtied workwear for lazy fashionistas, what name should it give the brand?
THE WINNER: Yves Stained Laurent Michael Rouse, Troy, Mich.
SECOND PLACE: J Construction Crew Greg Pal, Mountain View, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: Giorgio Armuddy —Sue Wehrspann, Denver
