Hold your bladder for the Subaru Impreza 2.0R

Published on October 13th, 2010

This is definitely one of the ways to see how long can you hold yourself from tinkling (as in peeing). Of course, if you farted during this competition, you will most probably be slapped a few times with other contestants’ free hand. The Subaru Palm Challenge is an annual thing now and is organised by Subaru sole distributor, Motor Image Sdn Bhd. This is their third year running and 80 Malaysians will be testing their bladder-holding skill as well as the strength of their mental health to compete and win a Subaru Impreza 2.0R (as it says here, the spec may vary).

The challenge will be held this weekend (October 16) at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. If you have nothing to do that day, and willing to embrace the traffic jam, head down there to give the contestants a boost.

The game is simple; place your right palm flat on the palm outline allocated to each contestants on the Subaru Impreza and endure several endurance tests for those who made it to the elimination rounds. The contestants had to stand on one foot, ping pong ball balancing on a spoon and giving gentle blow to ‘sticky notes’ pasted on their foreheads to make it go away during last year’s Palm Challenge. Oh, and it went on for almost 10 hours.

“We organized the Subaru Palm Challenge for people with drive, sporting spirit, determination and adaptability. These are the qualities similar to the Subaru Impreza which they are competing for. I believe the 10 individuals that qualify to go to Singapore for the finals will best encompass these qualities,” said Glenn Tan, Executive Director of Tan Chong International Limited.

Celebrity Fitness, one of the most popular fitness center in Malaysia, is offering free trial passes to the registered participants from October 10 to 15 at any of their 9 fitness centers. Just make sure you don’t pull a muscle a day before the challenge, or you’ll be palm-ing yourself instead.

Ten Malaysian will be selected to enter the regional competition which will be held in our neigbouring country, Singapore. The MediaCorp Subaru Impreza Challenge – The Asian Face-Off will take place on October 30 and will include contestants from Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, China, Philippines, Vietnam, as well as our local boys and girls. The winner will drive home a Subaru Impreza 2.0R (hopefully with a full tank and reloaded TnG card, or it’ll be a dreadful long drive from Singapore). There are other prizes as well such as cash prizes for Country Winner. The prize is special to the last person standing from each country, except for Singapore. Country Team prize, on the other hand, will combine all the contestants from each country’s timing and the one with the highest number wins.

Our local favourite radio station Hitz.FM will be the challenge’s media partner and you can register to participate in the holding-your-bladder-as-long-as-you-freaking-can competition at Hitz.FM website.
