#PassTheCrown Update: Our Gift Was Stolen!

I usually have nothing negative to say about whiskey. However, on this day, I have a bit of a bone to pick with Whiskey Goldmine…because they stole our gift in the Crown Royal #PassTheCrown white elephant gift exchange!

As you may recall, we originally received a Kindle Fire. That didn’t last long, however, as our gift was stolen and replaced with a Sonos Play 3s. And now we’ve been swiped again, with Whiskey Goldmine taking the Sonos Plays 3s, but still leaving us with a pretty sweet gift: the Outdoor Edition Camera.

The description: Whether your goal is to capture a great day out with friends or you’re gunning for the cover of a magazine, the HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition can help you nail it and look like a HERO.

Well who doesn’t want to look like a hero, amirite?

See, that’s the great thing about participating in the #PassTheCrown gift exchange: even the gifts you get “stuck” with are pretty damn awesome.

Here is something else that’s great: Crown Royal’s embroidered purple bags, which any of you who are 21 and older can get for $9.95. Christmas is coming up. Do it. You know you want to.


Tweet me at @JerodMorris with your thoughts and use the hashtag #PassTheCrown. Alternatively, you can friend me on Facebook (Facebook.com/JerodMSF) and help promote the program there, still using the #PassTheCrown tag for credit.

Remember, whatever reader participates and uses the #PassTheCrown hashtag the most is who will receive the duplicate prize. And right now, @tfletch2 is definitely in the lead!

And also remember that for every #PassTheCrown hashtag used, Crown Royal is stuffing an additional bag and sending it to an overseas troop as part of the Heroes Project.

  1. Sorry Jerod, but “stealing” is just part of the white elephant gift game format…
    Just be happy that #PassTheCrown didn’t choose the Lefty the White Elephant story to add to the gift swap… That really throws a wrench into gift ownership planning!
    Happy Holidays!
