Winners of the VMware Fusion “Refuse to Choose” Contest Announced!

It’s time.  Drum roll please…. 

Team VMware Fusion has selected the winners of the SXSW 2010 “Refuse to Choose” contest.  We saw a lot of enthusiasm and enjoyed seeing the fusions that you came up with.  The winners won us over with their creativity, priceless facial expressions, witty captions and dedication to the VMware Fusion brand.

Congratulations to Sonja Spray and Chris Sigmund who will bring “Baby Hip-Hopssical” into the world with 2 brand new MacBook Pros.    

A few other "honorable mention fusions" are shown below.  If only we could have chosen a few more grand prize winners!:

Refuse to Choose and Enter to Win a Macbook Pro by April 8!

Did you catch the VMware Fusion cupcakes and "refuse to choose" t-shirts at SXSW 2010?  We enjoyed spreading the word about VMware Fusion to thousands of Mac users through sugar, t-shirts and a ton of laughs.  For those who refuse to choose, the Madcakes Bakery created these special "Fusion" cupcakes, with half vanilla and half double chocolate chip (covered with delicious), sparing the public the struggle of choosing between their two favorite flavors:

But as coverage from SXSW 2010 comes to a wrap, we're happy to share that we've extended the VMware Fusion SXSW "Refuse to Choose" contest deadline through this Thursday, April 8.

With VMware Fusion, you can be a Mac…and a PC! Fuse with your opposite and enter for a chance to win a MacBook Pro.
If you are sporting a fusion t-shirt from SXSW, find your opposite and post a picture of the two of you on our
VMware Fusion Facebook page. If not, then post a photo of your own creative fusion! Ohio State and Michigan?
Rich and Poor? Safe and Sorry? We want to see what you can come up with.

Here are some creative examples currently in the running:
