    Video Your Granny And Win Coldplay Tickets

    thehardestpart3.jpgVideo your granny for MAX and win Coldplay tickets!


    It's a physical challenge for both the entrant and the performer. But it could get you in the door to see Coldplay! If you can get your grandparent to dance, on camera, and email the mpeg video (less than 5meg please!), we will take all entries very seriously. We don’t think they’re bringing the 84-year-old dancer from their latest music video, but if you have some elderly people who can dance, you may be there to find out!


    If you couldn't be bothered, enter by answering a question in the normal way. Each method wins double passes in each state. To enter visit the following links:
