As much as it pains me to write about this but one of those crazy promotions just made a bunch of people in Seattle $35,000 richer.

 A car dealership said it would give away $420,000 to a dozen people if the Seahawks shut out the Giants at MetLife Stadium yesterday. Well… the Giants left a big ol’  goose egg up on the scoreboard losing 23-0.


 Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way is now obligated to pay out $35,000 to twelve contestant winners as part of a “Seattle shutout” promotion.

 General Manager Mike Gates was flooded with calls Sunday afternoon and evening, but wanted a returned call most of all. He said he was waiting for calls for instructions from insurance and promotions companies.

 Car dealers partner with promotions groups in order to drive up sales, increase media exposure and get people talking about the dealer.

At least someone got some good news this Sunday.
