T-Pain Sells 300K iPhone Apps, Launches Contest

ON A BOAT (Hypebot) –
T-Pain and developer Smule have moved an impressive 300,000 of his iPhone auto-tune app for $2.99 each ( = $897,000!) and now they've added an amusing contest to boost sales further.

The Contest: Create a video singing along to “I'm on a Boat” and you could win $5,000 cash, signed prizes, even the chance to hang with T-Pain himself. Entering is easy— just capture yourself performing “I’m On a Boat” using Smule’s I Am T-Pain app, upload it to Youtube, and then fill out the entry form on the right of this page link:

The Prizes:

  • One grand prize winner will receive a cash prize of $5,000 and a Big Ass Chain ($47 value, approximate weight of 10 lbs)
  • Ten finalists will receive a cash prize of $500 and set of Grillz (gold teeth)
  • Other cool prizes, including autographed items, will be distributed during the contest. These prizes will go to contestants who make us (the Smule and Nappy Boy teams) laugh the hardest.
