TORONTO, ON (September 06, 2010) – After challenging fans with an online promotion in conjunction with the release of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, Volvo is pleased to announce the contest winner. Varun Jain of North York, ON was notified recently that he is the proud new owner of a shiny new Volvo XC60, just like the one Edward drives in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.
Starting June 24, fans of the TWILIGHT SAGA put their knowledge to the test in an online interactive game called Lost in Forks. Named after Forks, Washington, the city where Edward and Bella live, the objective of the game was to reach the Cullen’s house in the shortest number of “forks in the road”. Those who reached the Cullen’s in the shortest number of forks were invited back for the finalist round, held between July 19 and July 21.
Varun Jain, an avid online gamer, was browsing the Volvo website and decided to give the contest a try. “I enter online contests occasionally, so I decided to try my hand at it. It took some work, but managed to figure out that the shortest route in the contest was in 11 turns,” said Jain. After playing the online game, fans registered for a draw to win Volvo’s newest crossover, featuring City Safety, a system designed to help drivers avoid low-speed collisions.
Jain was shocked and excited about the contest outcome. “I’m still absolutely amazed. This is by far the biggest and the most fabulous thing I’ve ever won.” When asked about his very own XC60, Jain was equally excited, “I've heard great things about Volvos. I can't wait to drive it myself!”
