Here's an example script:
"Hi, I'm John Jones and I just won $500 from Typhoon in the Wear It To Win It contingency program. I signed up for Wear it To Win It at Typhoon.com. Then I competed in the Walmart BFL tournament and won first place. I really like the Harbor sunglass (take the sunglass off of your face and show it to the camera). The AquaView Meridian polarized lens is super dark and really cuts down the glare which makes a long day of fishing easier on my eyes. Thanks Typhoon!"
The video bonus is paid to pros/boaters and co-anglers (placing in the top 3 of their tournament). You must be wearing your Typhoon sunglass and either a Typhoon WITWI Jersey, Typhoon cap or a Typhoon t-shirt in your testimonial video. Note: The Typhoon logo must be clearly visible on your shirt or cap in order for you to claim this bonus.
