The challenge is simple: Point your Ring video doorbell to the skies, backyard, or anywhere you suspect aliens might lurk. "Whether it's a video of an Extraterrestrial walking (or flying?) up your driveway and asking for directions, or an unidentifiable lifeform exhibiting unusual and extraordinary behavior in your backyard—submit your best footage!" Ring enthusiastically encourages.
But here's the kicker—if your attempts at catching an alien lifeform on camera leave you with nothing but crop circles, you don't have to end up empty-handed.
Ring has a backup plan. You can still enter to win an 'Out of this World' prize. How? By capturing and submitting your most imaginative take on an Extraterrestrial sighting on your Ring camera. If your video oozes creativity and humor with things like snazzy alien costumes, homemade spacecraft, and extraterrestrial-inspired conversations through your Ring device—you're in the running for a $500 Amazon gift card.
Let your inner Spielberg shine as you craft an outlandish X-Files-worthy masterpiece. If Ring likes your alien encounter (real or fantastical), you could walk away with $500 to spend on whatever earth-bound or space-centric items tickle your fancy on Amazon.
It's nice to see Ring having a little bit of fun with this latest promotion. We've covered Ring initiatives for years, and while the company's heart is often in the right place, some promos have gotten the brand in hot water. Instead of asking police departments to hand out Ring cameras to residents (and expect them to share any footage with law enforcement later), asking for spooky surveillance of space visitors is a welcome, light-hearted turn from the video doorbell pioneer.
