"This is truly one of the most innovative and exciting advertising opportunities available today," said Oleynik. "Once I set the record, the company name of the auction winner will be recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records, one of the biggest bestsellers of all time, which has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 37 languages. But the potential exposure doesn't stop there. The current record holder for the longest TV-watching marathon, Terrye Jackson, was featured on websites and in newspapers and magazines worldwide, including the Washington Post, the Washington Times, The Daily Texan, CNNSI and many, many more. This auction is a chance for a company to reach millions of people without paying millions of dollars."
Stan Oleynik will legally change his name to the company name of the highest bidder for one calendar year, guaranteeing the auction winner maximum and exclusive exposure before, during and after this exciting and much anticipated media event. Immediately after his name has been changed, Oleynik and his couchmate, Victor, will go for the Guinness gold. This historic world record attempt will be filmed in real time on a web-cam, and featured on Oleynik's website, and/or on the website of the winning bidder. In addition, the auction winner's company name will be featured on Oleynik's website, and Stan and Victor will both be wearing t-shirts and caps emblazoned with the winning bidder's name and logo during the world record attempt and during all subsequent media events and interviews for one full year. Finally, Oleynik assures all bidders that if he fails in his world record attempt, the winning bidder's money will be refunded in full.
Proceeds from the auction will go to the start-up of Oleynik's new company. Only bids from legitimate, legal, and tasteful companies will be considered.
"This auction can truly change somebody's life forever," said Oleynik. "This really is the opportunity of a lifetime, and there with my money back guarantee there is no risk. The only question is, are you ready to be in the spotlight?"
