Ok Zam, I'll Take Test Your Skillz for $1000.

Clue: Your challenge is to make a "HOMEROWED" spinoff. Yes, it is now time for our first edition of our new segment Test Your Skillz! Ton has already explained the basics for you. This weeks challenge is a spinoff of Attack of the Show's famous sketch, "HOMEROWED". For those of your who haven't seen it, Kevin Rose (once a host) hits people over the head with a keyboard and yelled "YOU'VE BEEN HOMEROWED!" (Click here to see the video to know exactly what it is.) Now you can either make a picture of just turn in a saying, or even a video if you are feeling lucky (please, you own work.) Here are a few examples that Ton and I have made, we take a telephone, hit people on the head, and say, "You've been SPEED-DIALED!!" Another one is when you hit people with an iPod and say, "YOU'VE BEEN CLICK-WHEELED!!" Now that is what we are looking for. You can make it pretty, design a nice logo for it, like I said before, you will get a ton of bonus points for making a video of you hitting people with your item and yelling the saying, but you don't have to. Now, here is the deal, we do prefer Photoshop. Please no MS Paint. Now I know what some of you are saying, "Nooo, I don't have Photoshop." Well I luckily have a solution. It's called GimpShop. It is pretty much a, um, less advanced version of Photoshop, but it is basically the same thing. It has many of the same tools as Photoshop, and guess what, IT'S FREE!!!! Just click here and download it for your OS. It works on many Operating Systems. So there is your challenge. Now if you have any question, feel free to ask in the comments. You have til Monday night at 8:00 USA EST time to turn it into the email address testyourskillz@gmail.com. We just want a picture, video, or something saying what it is and what you hit them with. GOOD LUCK!

  • Hey guys. I'm all for the new competition and everything in order to win prizes, but this one might limit the amount of people who can enter. I don't know diddly squat about using GimpShop to make anything of quality, and I'm sure that goes for most people who are just your average PC user.

    I would like to enter, but like I said, my photo/gimpshop skills sucks so it'd be a waste of time for me.
