Today we bring you one of our oddest contest to date - and you'll want, want, want to enter this one. Courtesy of the Disinformation Company comes the documentary, "The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls." You can win one of three copies by commenting on this post.
The winner of 20 Best Documentary Awards, The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is the story of Jools and Lynda Topp, the world's only yodeling country singing and comedy lesbian twins, who have entertained a generation with their politics and celebration of joy. Doubly funny and enormously powerful singers, their politically-charged comedy theatre helped change the social fabric of a nation, and in the process The Topps became unlikely cultural icons.
Here's the background: The two sisters became sensations in Australia/New Zealand for their over-the-top characters and comedy shows. They are hysterically funny, but they also used their platform to advance civil rights and other issues - like the fight over nuclear power. The documentary isn't just clips of their performances - it also includes in-depth interviews about their careers - from coming out long before most performers even considered doing it to their famous activism for various progressive issues.
The rules are simple: Leave a comment on this thread telling me why I should pick you. The contest will close Sunday, November 13 at midnight Eastern time. I'll pick the winners at random; you don't have to purchase anything to win. Contributors are not eligible to win.
After the break catch some videos of the duo performing and a promo for the movie.
