3M Frameworks Couple Speak Contest

DIY projects have a love-hate relationship with the residents of our home. I love them, my husband hates them. I would guess that this situation is true for many of you.

The folks at 3M have harnessed this battle of the sexes mentality into a competition they've labeled "Couple Speak." Simply by capturing the hilarious balance of how you and your partner communicate you could win $5,000. No, I'm not kidding. 3M is actually giving away $5,000 to TWO video entries.

To Enter the Video Contest:
  • Keep it Short (no longer than 2 minutes)
  • No 3M products in the video (if you were using 3M products you wouldn't be in this mess!)
  • Make it Funny
  • Keep it Clean!
3M has a ton of video examples on their 3M Frameworks Facebook Page and on their YouTube site. Below is my favorite:

Seriously, this reminds me SO much of me and my hubby it is scary!

3M is also giving away $250 every week for a Couple Speak translation contest on their Facebook Page. All you have to do is:
  1. Go to the 3M Frameworks Facebook page
  2. Click on the Couple Speak link on the left hand side
  3. Scroll to where it says "Win $250 weekly"
  4. Enter your translation. 
Some of my favorites:
He Says:
Yeah, this project will be so easy; I know what I am doing
He Means:  
I better Google what the heck I'm doing

She Says:  
Are you sure that’s going to work?
She Means:  
That’s not going to work

3M Frameworks is the genius behind the Couple Speak campaign. Their products like LeadCheck, TEKK Protection, Abrasives, ScotchBlue Tape and Tough Duct Tape are the kind of products that PREVENT CoupleSpeak situations!! My favorite product, for sure, is the ScotchBlue Tape. If you want crisp paint lines, you need ScotchBlue. In a couple weeks, 3M Frameworks will be giving all of these products away to a How-To Gal reader!

The 3M Couple Speak campaign makes it easy to share your DIY stories for a chance to win $5,000 or share a hilarious translation for a chance to win $250.  Share on Twitter or Share on Facebook. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
