Vauxhall Turns Corsa into Earphones

Vauxhall UK is introducing a new edition of The UK Beatbox Championships and, to launch the contest, the carmaker has developed a pair of headphones that come in a Corsa shape.

To create the headphones, a team of artists made a mold in the unique shape of the car, with the ornaments being fastened to Skullcandy earphones. Only one pair of the earphones was made and Vauxhall plans to offer it to the winner of the competition, which will be decided in the grand final that is scheduled to take place on June 11.

Vauxhall Motors is proud to sponsor the Vauxhall UK Beatbox Championships, and offer a platform for Britain’s best young beatboxers. The Corsa headphones are a fun and stylish way to celebrate the five year sponsorship in which Vauxhall has been delighted to aid the growth of the British Beatbox scene,” said Wendy Towler from Vauxhall Motors.

This is the fifth year of the UK Beatbox Championships, an initiative aimed at allowing British beatbox talents to shine.

The regional heats will take place in London, Liverpool and Nottingham. Heat winners, decided by both the crowd and judges, will then head to London for the grand final. Unleashing their vocal artistry at the renowned O2 Islington Academy, each finalist must use their full array of tricks and rhythmical prowess to impress the roaring crowd and judges. Loud-mouth legend, Stig of the Dump will be conducting proceedings and for 2011, the crowd will also be treated to performances from some surprise star guests and judges,” stated the press release.
