We May Regret This…
After months in the making, we are pleased to announce the launch of the tMDare Campaign – our guilt-free way of making a day at the office turn into a calamitous mess of nonsensical enjoyment. We here at The Mighty Design have never lived ordinary lives, and we’ve decided firmly that we’re not going to run an ordinary business, either.
So we invite you – the average business person, the youthful student, the jobless delinquent, the motivated graduate, the barhopping partygoer – and anyone you know to join us in our thrill-seeking endeavor towards the brink of humiliation (and beyond)!
In order to so, you should start by visiting our Facebook page and clicking the “Like” button. You can also Follow us on Twitter to keep up with any tMDare updates. This way, you can interact with us and others who are participating, and you get to watch us do something foolish every single week!
Now, there are some basic things to understand about tMDares, so read on to learn about the many ways you can participate in the fun and see what happens during a tMDare Drive.
The tMDare Purpose
What makes work enjoyable at The Mighty Design is, essentially, our sense of humor. And because we love what we do and we love the people who make it possible, we’ve decided it’s your turn to laugh. At our expense, of course.
That being said, we’ve got a couple dares up our sleeves already. But we think it’d be more fun if you – our friends, family members, clients, fans, and followers – threw out some ideas. After all, you’re the reason we’re doing this to begin with. Why not make it a personal request?
If you’d like to see one of us do something absurd, humiliating or just plain silly, post a comment with your tMDare request on this blog.
We will review and respond shortly after. Depending on how many people submit tMDare requests, we might do a random drawing one week and a vote amongst viewers the next.
**Please read the tMDare Testament in this blog to review the guidelines for any dares we will [or will not] perform.
The tMDare Architecture
Each Monday, there will be a new tMDare posted up. This marks the beginning of the tMDare Drive. Throughout the week, there will be related announcements posted about the dare, which allow opportunities for viewers to interact. Typically, the tMDare Drive will end at Midnight on Thursday, so we can tally up total interactions on Friday and determine if the dare goal has been achieved. If, indeed, the dare goal was accomplished, we will tape and perform the tMDare as promised over the weekend, and post the video up by Monday. If not, we will try a new tMDare the following week.
We will set goals for tMDare interactions each week. For example, we might ask for a total of 10 new Facebook likes OR Twitter followers. Additionally, we might ask for a total of 20 Facebook likes OR comments on related announcements, OR Twitter retweets or mentions on related announcements.
When you see a tMDare (or related announcement) posted, you can interact in several ways.[table "7" not found /]
The tMDare Testament
Now, because we thoroughly enjoy our fans/followers and we equally enjoy running our own business – we’re not trying to do anything in our dares that might offend anyone.
The goal is to be outgoing, outrageous, and to get some good laughs from it. Don’t get me wrong – we have a pretty bold sense of humor – so we’re still going to get a little edgy with it. Consider the tMDares as good, clean fun…gone slightly astray.
For the sake of clean humor, no dares will contain…
-Nudity or Sexual Behavior
-Racial / Ethnic Slurs
-Bodily Fluids or Functions
-Anything that can physically harm another person
-Illegal activities or substances
We have a rule in the office – “you can’t be mad if it’s funny.” This might not always apply to those outside our walls, so please help us keep the tMDares clean and enjoyable for all audiences.

Thanks for your interest, and we hope you get a laugh as we make total asses of ourselves on a regular basis. We can’t wait to hear the words “I tMDare you to….” resounding across our social networks!
