Vermont Wins Simpsons Movie Contest

from Boston.com:

Maybe it was the pink doughnut. Maybe it was the clever homemade video, or small-town charm.

Maybe Homer just figured it was time to go green.

Whatever the reason, this much is true: Tiny Springfield, Vt., beat out 13 other like-named cities Tuesday for the right to host the premiere of “The Simpsons Movie,” winning an online poll it wasn’t even invited to participate in.

On July 21, the town’s 212-seat movie theater will play host to the movie, which opens July 27.

“Vermont wins,” read the purple lettering beside the doughnut-chomping patriarch of Fox TV’s dysfunctional middle American family on “The Simpsons Movie Springfield Challenge” Web site.

  1. I am one of 200 volunteers who appeared in the winning Springfield Vermont video. After we helped our local Chamber of Commerce win the contest, they turned their backs on us. We should have been the first in town to be invited to view the world premiere of The Simpsons Movie but instead we were kept off the invitation list so the more elite members of the community could all be invited instead. And then not even a word of thanks or mention of us in the public ceremony outside the theater. Read more and view our famous winning video now at our new website:
