Giant Dude Contest


Win A Custom Tube Dude of Your Very Own!

(Value of up to $2,000) 

Giant Dude enjoys lounging at the entrance to Greer City Hall. However, there are a couple of things missing from his life: friends and a name. The City of Greer and Tube Dude artist Scott Gerber are giving one local Tube Dude fan a chance to win a full-sized custom sculpture of his or her very own! Imagine a one-of-a-kind Clemson or Gamecock Dude. Surprise a loved one with a Tube Dude representing a favorite hobby.  Check out the many variations Scott has already created.


How to Enter


Submit a photo of yourself with Giant Dude at 301 E. Poinsett Street -- the entrance to Greer City Hall. It can be an intimate shot of just you and Giant Dude – or you can invite family and friends. Creativity is the key to a great photo.

2    According to artist Scott Gerber, the sculpture is known simply as Giant Dude. That hardly seems fair since he’s now a large part of the Greer community. So come up with a name for the big guy. Again, creativity is important because “Bob” probably isn’t going to win any prizes. The photo and name combination will be used to select the Grand Prize winner.

3   Submit your photo and suggested name using the form below. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 19. Scott Gerber himself will judge all photos and names and select the winner of a custom Tube Dude valued at up to $2,000.

 Submit your photo with Giant Dude
AND a suggested name for him below.
Both are required for a successful entry.
