CAN YOU PROVE MERMAIDS ARE REAL? IF SO, WE WANT TO GIVE YOU ONE MILLION DOLLARS

To celebrate the magic of everyday moments, Chicken of the Sea® is proud to launch its first-ever One Million Dollar Mermaid Spotting Promotion! In celebration of National Mermaid Day, we’re offering a $1,000,000 Grand Prize to any mermaid fans who submit Scientific Evidence of a Mermaid and coordinate an in-person meeting with the live Mermaid and Expert that proves once and for all that these supposedly mythical creatures exist out in the wild.

Think you’re up for the task? Now until the end of February, we invite you to track down an honest-to-gosh Mermaid, providing unedited video proof that the majestic creature exists. (Of course, please make sure no Mermaid, Merman, or Merchild is harmed in the process.) If your unaltered video includes all required Scientific Evidence as certified by our Mermaid Expert outlined and you’ve successfully coordinated an in-person meeting between the Mermaid and our Mermaid Expert (along with satisfying all other eligibility requirements contained in the Official Rules), congratulations – you’re officially a millionaire Mermaid spotter! 

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T HAVE A MERMAID ON SPEED-DIAL…

Can’t find a real Mermaid? Just use your imagination! Rest assured we’re also eager to see images and videos of adorable babies in mermaid costumes, scene-stealing pets in mermaid tails… heck, even a Catalina-shaped cloud will do! Submit your very best mermaid-themed image or video below to be entered for a chance to win the much-coveted Swimmer’s Up Prize: a grand total of $2,500! *

What qualifies as a Mermaid, you ask? If you spot a half-human sea creature with an identifiable head (i.e., two eyes, one nose, and one mouth) and torso of a woman, man, child or individual and the natural biological tail of a fish or scaled sea-dwelling creature, we want to see it! 

Don’t forget, the Mermaid must be capable of living and breathing underwater without the use of artificial aids, such as scuba gear and/or other breathing apparatus, as well as capable of breathing when above the surface of water. No tricks! The Mermaid must also be living and breathing without the use of surgical enhancements, makeup, costumes, tricks, props, computer graphics, digital effects and/or other artificial means.  

If no Entry satisfies the eligibility requirements for the Grand Prize and no Grand Prize is awarded, Chicken of the Sea has committed to donating one million ounces of protein to food banks across the country.

*All eligible Entries which do not qualify for the Grand Prize will be automatically entered for a chance to win the Swimmer’s Up Prize.
