There’s a movie coming out soon that is already generating a lot of Oscar buzz: “The King’s Speech.” It concerns the public speaking difficulties of England’s King George VI, the father of the present Queen Elizabeth. Thrown into the spotlight by the sudden abdication of his brother King Edward in 1936, this unprepared man had the best of intentions but was unable to get the words out without stuttering.
I’m reminded of the many times I’ve stood on the doorstep of a Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes prize winner who had dreamed of this winning moment for years and might have even imagined what he or she would say to the assemblage present. But the words just couldn’t come out as hoped. Indeed, if the stunned reaction didn’t lead to nervous laughter or even tears, the words were often “Uh .. uh … uh …” followed by a near collapse to the floor.
Well, do not fear: the King’s story turns out all right – just as our winners’ stories always do.
When our PCH Prize Patrol arrives with roses, balloons, champagne and a Big Check we are not looking to film an Oscar-worthy movie. We do not care how a sweepstakes prize winner looks, how he or she is dressed, or whether the winner’s hair is coiffed. We just want to capture the actual winning moment – as it happens, unrehearsed, unstaged, with all the unscripted reactions of winners, friends and relatives. This will demonstrate that the people who win are average, everyday people, and that TV viewers have as good a chance as anyone else of winning thousands, even millions of dollars in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.
So don’t worry about how you will appear at your winning moment. Instead, just make sure you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes right now. Enter to win online at pch.com every chance you get. That way you’ll have a better chance of becoming a sweepstakes prize winner – and welcoming the PCH Prize Patrol to your door.
Wishing you the very best of luck,
