National Brands Cajun Injector and The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce are searching the country for the best tailgaters. The winners will receive national corporate sponsorship and be deemed the best of the best - official "Pro Tailgaters." Hopeful tailgater pros can submit a YouTube video showcasing their dedication and passion for college football tailgating. Cajun Injector and The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce will choose three tailgate teams with the most enthusiastic viral videos from different colleges across the U.S.
"It's not that different from sponsoring a sports team," said Patrick Brown, VP of Marketing at Bruce Foods Corporation, parent company of Cajun Injector and The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce. "Many of these tailgating fans are at every home and away game, mastering the techniques that ensure they have the best setup for cooking and entertaining."
The selected three winners will receive smokers, fryers, cookware, tents, cooking tables, ice chests, clothing and a weekly allowance for a selection of meat and beverages. One of the three winners will receive a top-quality Original Louisiana Hot Sauce Mascot Costume complete with an internal cooling system.
For many sporting events, the tailgate party prior to the game attracts more participants than the game itself; this phenomenon has produced a segment for a thriving tailgating industry. Sporting goods outlets and other retailers have set aside store sections for tailgating merchandise; businesses are using hospitality tents and caterers at tailgate parties for networking and entertaining clients. Most recently, brands such as Cajun Injector and The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce are becoming corporate sponsors for tailgating teams at colleges across the country.
Cajun Injector is the number one selling injectable marinade and the one-stop-shop for meat smoking, frying, and outdoor cooking. Tailgaters wishing to be sponsored by Cajun Injector and The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce can upload a video to YouTube stating why their team is the best of the best to represent Cajun Injector during home games at their university. Winners of the sponsorship will be announced on September 1, 2009. Visit http://www.cajuninjector.com/tailgating to submit your YouTube video link today.
