Writing is quite the subjective art form. A sentence, however carefully crafted it may be, may evoke laughter in one reader and disgust in another.
With our daily social media posts we are always trying to carefully appeal to our audience by coming up with clever, relevant, or funny captions; but we noticed recently that YOU, the reader, often leaves comments under the photo or video that leaves us saying “Why didn’t we think of that!?”
So with that in mind we decided to launch a monthly caption contest. Rules were simple, we provide the image, you provide the caption! Whichever caption the team at Spivo Stick thought was best would win a free Spivo Stick!
Within a couple days of posting the contest we had over 40 submissions, all of which were excellent.
Here is a little recap!
The Photo - @ambah_rose in Thailand
The winning caption!
"Butt first, let me take a selfie" - @mufasa_93
And in case you didn't get the reference...
"You'd be dumb(o) if you didn't use this selfie stick" - @nickmat1234.7
"Selfie with the Kardashians" - @saturated.visuals
"when the squad decide to leave the club but you're still drunk" - @claire.allchin
"Any other selfie stick would just be irrelephant" - @matacherry
Huge thanks to everyone who participated and had us laughing!
