Last time around we wanted you to take a celebrity...real or fictional, alive or dead...create a fragrance for them and also a slogan to go with it. You guys really came out smelling like a rose with your creations...altho I highly doubt most would be used even tho a few would really sell if you ask me.

The prize this time around is a cheap old paperback that I must have picked up at a library sale...BUT it does tie in nicely with this week's Tweak...and that's all that counts. It's H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds"...which its pre-quel was probably "The Disagreement of the Worlds" but that didn't sell anywhere as well. Anyway, this thing is old and used and has all kinds of wrinkles and even a sticky tape residue on the back...and it was once owned by some guy named William McClafferty...but it can be yours IF you win the Tweak this time around. (Photo to follow shortly.)


Previous...ly Watched Films

What we want you to do is to take any movie and then do a pre-quel to it. Hey, if George Lucas can do, so can we. Just keep in mind the new title has to have come before/happened prior to the original's title in some way (time-wise). We would also need a plot that goes hand in hand with the new film title...and if you can tie the new film's plot in with the original you are parodying (by title and/or concept) all's the better. Try to keep the changed title pretty close to the original...please don't alter it so that it doesn't remotely resemble the original title...half the funny is subtle changes. And as always, witty, funny, off-the-wall entries are what we are looking for. Please include both movie titles with your entry. Confused? Just look below for some examples I did which hopefully helps you out.


Examples:

Super Size Me - Medium Me: A documentary of a guy who really shoulda seen no one cares what moderately sized meal he eats at McDonalds.


Catch Me If You Can - Find Me If You Can: The search is on for Leonardo DiCaprio's acting ability after he did an exemplary performance in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'...and why exactly is he cashing all those huge checks NOW?


The Wedding Planner - The Engagement Planner: J Lo spends pretty much half her life planning for weddings she'll never see to fruition.
