Previously, the only people with "secret party towns" were enterprising kidnappers and lying high school freshmen. But now Bud Light is making the game legit with Whatever, USA, an anything-goes destination that you can visit, if you play your cards right.
This new promotion is a super-sized extension of the "Up for Whatever" campaign Bud Light launched during the Super Bowl. (Remember the guy they picked to play ping-pong with Schwarzenegger?) Bud Light is calling on fans to submit 10-second audition videos for a chance to spend the weekend of September 5-7 in Whatever, USA where the lucky few will participate in a bunch of fun, undisclosed activities. Though over 100,000 have already auditioned, only about 1,000 will win (Whatever, USA is apparently more of a township than a town). After checking out the competition on Bud Light's YouTube channel, submit your vid by August 31 for a shot at the mysterious revelry. We have it on good authority that at least one of the Bachelorettes and all of The Pips will be there.
Kristin Hunt is a food/drink staff writer for Thrillist, and hopes Whatever, USA will be offering ping-pong rematches with Arnie. Follow her to the choppa at @kristin_hunt.
