GTPlanet vs. Wham! 2015

Can you believe it? The first GTPlanet vs Wham competition was five years ago. Last year's competition received more than ten times the number of posts in RouWa's original thread in 2010 and it ended up winning thread of the year in the annual GTPlanet Awards!

General Rules and Guidelines​
  • Survive 2015 (i.e. 23:59.59 in your time zone) without listening to Last Christmas by Wham!
  • Post in this thread before December 1 to show your interest in being a 'participating member'.
  • Only the original song performed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley counts. Remixes such as Whamnam Style or covers like the ones by Taylor Swift or Glee do not.
  • Hearing any part of the song counts as a whamming. If you are unsure of the song's origin, keep listening to find out if it's a Wham! version or a cover/remix.
  • GIFs, still images or muted video do not count.
  • When you hear the music, consider yourself whammed, out of the competition and on the Whammed User Log.
  • The Whammed User Log (WUL) is the younger, festive version of the BUL. It tells us when and how a member got Whammed. If you get whammed, post here and tag myself (@Daniel) so I get a notification and can promptly update it.
  • Do not post any links to the song in this thread without sufficient warning. This place is a safe haven.
  • If (when) you get Whammed, you may change your avatar to show your elimination from the competition. @Jimlaad43 has created a PSD template, if you want to add your name and when you were Whammed, found here. I also have a .psd file below. Note that this is optional; you are not required to change your avatar.
  • While the rest of the site is free reign, keep in mind the site's rules regarding misleading (next bullet point)
  • You will not knowingly post any material that is false, misleading, or inaccurate.
  • If you play the link in the OP with any intention outside of refreshing your memory (i.e.playing it over Skype or PSN), you will be whammed if you hear it.
Some tips to avoid the song:

  • Do not trust anyone.
  • Avoid shopping at department stores, clothing stores, supermarkets - anything that may have a radio playing.
  • If you must step outside, consider bringing noise-isolating earphones and play loud music on them to avoid any other songs.
  • Do not trust anyone.
  • Have your computer defaulted to 'mute' and make sure that your volume is off while opening any links.
  • Do not talk to any other GTPers using Skype, Facebook, Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. We are all evil and cannot be trusted, especially @Jordon.
If you haven't yet head the song, just click on the video below to watch it before avoiding it until next year.
Good luck everyone. You'll need it.

  • 02/11 - @GTRacer22 and @Arixant - The song in the OP is meant to refresh your memory. Listening to it with the intention of whamming someone means listening to it. ;)
  • 02/11 - @NotThePrez - The mysterious, deadly bacteria known as whamylococcus cocleus is showing present in several patients. So far no cure has been found.
  • 02/11 - @Wiegert - Suffered from a.. er... walk-by whamming?

  • 10/11 - @Pezzarinho17 - After going in hiding for several days, George and Andrew silently hid in the shadows, waiting to wham their next target...

When I say I'm Ready a bit of me dies inside... :lol:

Curse you Wham for gifting the world such a thing!

A handy little tip for those who watch the show.

Avoid the QI Christmas special with David Tenant in it. That got me last year...
I'm in for a second year. Tons of fun last year, and easily one of the best reasons to be on GTPlanet for. :lol:

The Christmas CD adverts are a big danger... they usually open with Wham and come without warning... I'll have to watch the TV on mute till the new year :lol:
