While the super-car or the SUV has replaced the camel as the most popular means of transportation in the modern Emirates, the animal retains an important place in the nation’s heart. “Beautiful camel” may strike you as something of an oxymoron. But many a bedouin or sheikh will think nothing of dropping up to $3 million dollars on a so-called prized beauty, in the hope that she’ll bring home the coveted Bayraq—the fairest camel in the land. In this episode of The VICE Guide to Travel, Charlet finds herself the only woman in the desert, looking for the elusive beauty in the beast.
The Great Superjail Impression Contest 2012
Well lookee what the mailman just plopped on our doorstep from the kind people over at Adult Swim. Yes, it is a glorious bundle of Superjail! swag, and we intend to give it all to you, you lucky bastards. Anyone who knows anything about our operation will be aware of our perennial love for Superjail!, and can therefore imagine the internal anguish we’re going through at the thought of parting with these DVDs and nifty laptop covers. But we are prepared to hand all of our better sense to Jailbot to throw into the incinerator for a few measly impressions from you.
Art Talk with Superjail creator Christy Karacas
You see, when we first had the idea of running a contest to give away these shrink-wrapped laffs and psychedelic laptop covers, we thought about creating a challenge commensurate to the reward its winners would receive. Unfortunately, after a lot of back and forth with our legal and financial departments, we were told building a life-size replica of Superjail complete with a blood-thirsty Jailbot and throwing seven contestants in there to fight to the death wasn’t realistic from either the legal or monetary standpoint. So instead, we’re asking for your best Superjail! character impression in either MP3 or YouTube form (heavy preferential treatment will be given to costumed video entries). You can mimic whichever character you like, and the three best submissions will be given their very own Superjail! season 2 DVD and laptop cover. Also, the winners, as well as the less-shitty of the losers, will be published on this very blog for the whole world to watch. And who knows, maybe someday one of Christy Karacas’s voice actors will get hit by a cement truck and he’ll ask YOU to be their replacement! Send your entries here.
