crowdSPRING Celebrates Shakespearean Sonnet Day (Again) Ross Kimbarovsky | November 19th, 2009

Sadly, our last Shakespearean sonnet day was this past May. If you’re wondering what Shakespearean sonnet day is – we made it up. We read Shakespearean sonnets to celebrate … ummm … Shakespearean sonnets.

In May, Kevin handily defeated all challengers and he’s been boasting about his prowess nonstop for months. Jeff Clark, our newest employee (designer/front end developer), not impressed at all by Kevin’s tattoos and fancy Elton John glasses, very simply said: I challenge thee to a duel!

Their video duel is below. YOU are the judge. Who wins this one? Leave a note in the comments…

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!

    Giving it to the newbie. He was more committed to the effort and the Max Headroom shades did nothing to help the incumbent.

    NEXT CONTEST: Who can read a pharmaceutical disclaimer the fastest.

  • Amanda – Jeff really did step up. Voting still open, so we’ll see… As for pharmaceutical disclaimers … interesting….

    I believe those are a poor man’s Kanye West sunglasses–and why do I look like a ghost in the background?

    Why is Jeff so thirsty?

    Not so much “thirsty” as “too lazy to walk to the kitchen to drop off my used stuff”.

  • Kevin

    yo bethany, i’m real happy for you and imma let you finish, but amanda had the best blog post comment of all time. OF ALL TIME!

    I thinks it’s jeff… =D

    Ross – I think you gave Kevin a better camera angle. He barely had to glance up to spew forth his sonnet. Jeff, however, had to turn his head approximately 42 degrees to make the all-important eye contact with the camera lens. ( But at least you could see his eyes.) I call it a draw.

  • Charlene

    A baseball cap + Shakespeare seem so wrong… but even so, I have to give this one to Jeff.
