Published Nov 25, 2008In conjunction with the release of Pavements Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence Edition, Matador are doing quite the clever play on the albums tune "Date With Ikea by, well, offering a date with Ikea. Through a new contest dubbed "Brighten Your Corners, the label and imeem have teamed up to offer fans a chance to win a $500 shopping spree at Ikea, and with a real, live Pavement member.
To enter, all you need to do is submit a photo of your home on imeem and spell out in a short essay why its in desperate need of an Ikea makeover. If you win, youll then be paired up with one of the Pavement guys to help you spend your $500 Ikea gift card. Also, Matador says the "Sweedish meatballs are on them.
Theres no word just yet on which Pavement member will be roped in to partake in the contest. And theres also no word if that member will accompany you to your home after the spree to help set up all your new frustratingly difficult, assemble-it-yourself furniture.
You can enter the contest here until December 6, and the winners will be announced December 9, which conveniently enough is also the release date of Pavements Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedence Edition.
