If so, then this crazy new interactive concept which was recently launched by Phillips and created by Crispin Porter + Bogusky Europe wants you to create a statue of yourself. It's pretty simple, go to the "Male Monument" website, post and image and provide a creative reason as to why you're worthy of an actual tangible reproduction of the monument you create online.
Using either your webcam or upload a photo from your files you can create a "monument" to yourself including adding pigeon on your shoulder. The site employs a simple face recognition software that has been used on other online applications such as the uber-successful CP+B effort for Old Navy "SuperModelquins" and recently the Burt's Bees Blender campaign by Baldwin& of Durham.
Judges from Philips and CP+B will select two winners, each of whom will win an 80cm (approx 33 inches) monument of their entry. The winners will be announced on June 15, 2010.
