Sapphire offers prizes for bare box-art lookalikes

Get kit off, win kit

Graphics card maker Sapphire is offering consumers the chance to win big prizes this Halloween, and all they have to do is get their kit off. Yes, Sapphire wants its users to dress up - or maybe that should be dress down, right down - as the nude but tastefully tackle-less bloke seen on its packaging.

To be fair to Sapphire, it's also suggesting users kit themselves out as a busty strap-clad Dominatrix, a lissome fembot or one of a pair of super-cranial extra-terrestrials. None of them, however, are what you'd call over-dressed, and the aliens are positively au naturelle...

Whatever character they choose, users who garb themselves accordingly and send Sapphire a shot or two have the chance to win a pair of Toxic X1950 XTX graphics cards and a Socket AM2 CrossFire-ready motherboard to stick 'em in.

If you feel like shaving off your body hair and spraying yourself white, Sapphire wants to hear from you via its website. ®
