    I've been on GTPlanet for quite some time and there's this funny game....so, as you surely know Wham!'s "Last Christmas" is playing literally everywhere during christmas time. Once the Christmas time begins, there is no escape because the song will be everywhere.

    The rules are simple.

    You win, if you "survive" 2012 (31th December 23.59.59 o'clock, your time zone) without hearing the song or any part of it. That is the only way to win.

    You lose, if you get "whamed".

    - Only the original "Last Christmas" by Wham" with George Michael singing counts. Covers (are there any?) do not count.
    - Any part of the song you hear, no matter how short, throws you out of the competition.
    - Only audio counts. Images, Animated GIFs or the official music video without sound are OK.

    If you lose, you have to post here when, where and how you got "whamed".

    Some tips to win:
    - do not watch TV
    - do not listen to the radio
    - avoid public places during Christmas time
    - turn off the volume before clicking on links in any forum

    The last one is the most important, as any link can be fake and lead to a video of "Last Christmas".

    Up for it? Post in this thread and let everyone know how it's going. :)

    Hacks. When I think about it...the last time I've been to Istanbul there were indeed christmas trees at least. Then again, hotels might not be the place you'd usually pay a visit to tho. :p

    I've never heard the song before, nor have I heard it played in any public place here in Western Australia.

    Rhys Gardiner takes an early points lead!

    That's a very nice game you've got there, be a shame if something were to happen to it:sneaky:






    You wouldn't want to click by accident would you? That would be terribly unfortunate:devilish:
