So, the amazing cats at ThinkGeek have created a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag which they’ve decided to start giving away to lucky random participants in the “Tauntaun Tuesday” promotion on Twitter. Anyone who replys to “@thinkgeek” is entered into the giveaway, and this thing blew up. ThinkGeek’s Twitter account had this to say:
You guys borked our Tweetdeck! “Tauntaun” is trending right now: http://j.mp/7Qk7ZJ (Can’t wait to get the entry spreadsheet started. Oy.)
Sure, whoever has to process this is in for a hell of a headache, but the responses speak for themselves:
a_1steak_sauce: haha it's tauntaun tuesday! how awesome is that?!?!
and I myself wrote:
And this thing just continues to blow up, tweets including “tauntaun” and very few quizzical remarks leave us in Nerdtown overjoyed. It’s like a geeky holiday miracle.
