Have you ever heard of the ‘six-degrees-of-separation theory’? You know, the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by six links? Hotel chain Mercure translated that theory into a worldwide campaign and contest. The winner of this contest obviously gets to test the six degrees theory whilst making a trip around the world.

So now combine this theory with my theory (which states the.ego.tripper has the awesomest readers in the world). Result: one of you will undoubtedly win this competition. But what do you have to do exactly? Well, you have to post a video of yourself and upload it to Mercure’s Facebook page. In this video you have to say who you are, what talents/passions/reasons you have and why you are the best friend in the whole world. And you have to do this in under one minute. Easy (cause you’re awesome and my best friend)! Happy Mercure games, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

The winner will go on a world trip for seven weeks, starting in March, and he or she will test the six friends theory in six Mercure hotels in six destinations worldwide.

By the way: you can start uploading your video on the 20th of January (until the 10th of February). The fifty videos with the most likes will make it to the grand finale. Which means, ladies and gentlemen: it’s quite important to get a shitload of likes. Because I already like you, you get a head start of 1 FB-like. The results of the competition will be made public between the 17th and 24th of February. The winner will go on a world trip for seven weeks, starting in March, and he or she will test the six friends theory in six Mercure hotels in six destinations worldwide. In every destination the winner will be told where he or she can find his or her next friend. The last destination is Australia and the last ‘friend’ is someone of the Bundjalung tribe, who will give you a special treatment of killing you and eating you afterwards. Again: Happy Mercure games!

(okay, okay: the last bit I made up. The winner does not get killed or eaten by this Aboriginal tribe)
