Buy Band Hero This Month, Get Chance To Meet Taylor Swift

Prizes are always fun, especially when they're once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that involve pretty celebrities.

You may have noticed that in the promotion for Band Hero, the popular blonde vocalist is a fixture in many advertisements and even in the Behind the Scenes "Making of" videos we've seen. They're not just teasing you for the sake of sales (well, they are, but there's something else, too); they're going to give you the chance to meet Taylor Swift if you purchase Band Hero any time this month. All you have to do is open up the game, take out the instruction manual, and enter the code you see at the contest's official site. Even if you don't win the grand prize, you could also nab some tickets to one of her concerts or some Swift-signed merchandise. Not long ago, we learned that whoever had the highest score in a certain level in Burn Zombie Burn! would go off on a totally awesome European tour starting in Paris and ending in Egypt. That's just plain unbelievable but some of you out there would much rather save your fingers, type in a little code, and dream about sitting down with someone you...uh...can't possibly have. Eh, well, we're certain there are plenty of adoring fans out there, anyway, and not many are male.

Maybe I'm just getting old but does anyone else think she looks like she's 12? Or do all 18-year-olds look 12 to me now?

I would love to see an overweight, slobbish 40-something year old, "lives in his parents basement" type win this. If that meeting could be televised for all to see, we'd all be winners.

I have the key to her house, if you want to borrow it to meet her. And by "key", I mean crowbar. Just make sure you use it at night when no one is looking. If you get caught, you'll have to spend the night in the prison where I'm on a first name basis with the county sheriff. But it's like, sooo worth it!

Something like:
RedOctane: We are pleased to announce that if you buy Band Hero this month, you'll get a chance to meet Taylor Swi--

*Mic grabbed by Kanye*

Kanye: DJ Hero is definitely the **** right now and if you buy it this month or within the next 300 years, you'll be able to meet Beyonce Knowles.
And the chance of meeting Beyonce is 100...............in a trillion.

You don't have to buy the bundle.

Probably best not to buy it at all, though.

she def does have a baby face makin her look young. but i have met plenty of older chicks that looked younger and younger chicks that looked older. i think hollywood just goes around and scoops up all the baby faced lookin girlies. cuz i have met plenty of 18 year olds that DO NOT look 12 ;)

whatever this chick will probably be the next Spitney Beers or Iwannabeblack Agulara.

Eh, no.

I'm surprised someone with her inflated ego would agree to this contest. Her attitude is "I'm Taylor Swift and you're not!" 24/7. If there's any justice, Greg Miller from IGN PS3 wins the contest so Taylor can call him a dork right in his face. He apparently is a huge fan of hers according to his Band Hero review.

That's why I love this site. Ben and Arnold act their ages. Greg Miller, on the other hand, thinks acting like a 15 year-old is cool.

It's that 18-25 age bracket where you can't tell exactly how old they are.

BTW, if I could bet money in Las Vegas on this, I'd bet the winner comes from a Wii owner since there's a better chance that a female entered this contest.

Hey hey.......no. I don't want to meet her, but thanks Activision for securing my idea that money can get you anywhere, hence ( Taylor Swift's so called COUNTRY career.) and DJ Hero doms this game.

money really can get you almost anywhere with anyone as most people can be bought. i dont mean slave style i just mean that you throw enough money in anyones direction and most wont say no.
there is a movie i think comin out based on that idea, the one with the button and the million dollars or something.

actually if you look at girls gone wild, some chicks can be bought with silly shaped colorful beads.

I don't know man, the way she behaves? You're more likely to give her a dualshock in the teeth.

Ahh Taylor is such a babe! But not the best singer, but no one here can deny how catchy those damn songs are! I hate walking home from school and suddenly love story pops in your head for the next half hour.

I'm sure I'll get plenty of thumbs down for this but oh well. Taylor Swift seems to have a lot less of a holier than thou attitude or as someone up there put it, "I'm Taylor Swift and you're not", than most famous people. In fact I think she's probably one of the most down to earth celebrities, but that's just my opinion and I'm sure I'm in the minority here.

For everyone who's throwing insults of critical comments at Taylor Swift I have a few things to say.

1) Taylor is at very least as pretty/beautiful as most anyone you'll ever meet in real life.

2) If you met her, you'd never speak to her the way you speak about her here.

3) If you were ever fortunate enough to meet Taylor Swift, you'd be very happy, and would probably never tire of telling your kids and grandkids the story of the day you met Taylor Swift.

The only thing that would push me to buy band hero is if it came with a free swing at kanye west while taylor swift is watching. I think kanye needs to get what he deserves. taylor swift sees kanye knocked out, she wins. I get to knock kanye out since he irritates the hell out of me, i win. Kanye is knocked out so he cant do anything stupid, he wins. televise it live, everyone wins.
