1963 - 2016


General Rules and Guidelines:
  • Survive 2016 (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.
  • 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.

Whammed User Log:

  • 03/11 - @nick98 - The first has fallen! Nick was struck in a group chat with no escape.
  • 03/11 - @Formidable - And with that, Nick has already passed on the buck with another group chat Whamming.
  • 03/11 - @LancerEvo7 and @Akmuq - Two more added to the list!
  • 03/11 - @Grandea GTR - Another casualty of the @nick98-bomb.
  • 04/11 - @Angel - Determination alone does not protect one from a Whamming.
  • 04/11 - @amaterasu - If it was p0rn, you'd still be in, but alas...
  • 05/11 - @Kamata GTR - Up. Totally random radio station. It was a complete accident that your girlfriend switched the radio. Mhm. Yep.
  • 05/11 - @Leadfoot530 - It was @Jamesyarders in the study with the candlestick. (James also took out @STI9 and @250 GTO.
  • 05/11 - @Wiegert - A pre-enrollment Whamulation. I'd say it happens to all of us. But it doesn't.
  • 10/11 - @nascarfan1400 - I would walk 500 miles. And I would walk 500 more. Just to be the man who Whams @nascarfan1400.
  • 12/11 - @titleguy1 - O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How Awful Is Thy Soundtrack
  • 12/11 - @JASON_ROCKS1998 - Status report: Whammed.
  • 12/11 - @Pezzarinho17 - Woken up at 3am to the sound of Last Christmas. A living nightmare.
  • 15/11 - @Daniel - It was inevitable. Awful, but inevitable.
  • 17/11 - @GranTurismo916 - Heard the 'discordant' song in a Discord chat. You brought it upon yourself, GT916.
  • 18/11 - @TripleA5 - You went to Best Buy? Kinda deserve to be Whammed for that, bro.
  • 19/11 - @BKGlover - [overheard on the phone]"and it's not okay because if they take my station then I'll set the building on fire..." Too bad it was a day too late.
  • 20/11 - @S_Bridge - Two girls and a cup of Wham!
  • 20/11 - @Sanji Himura - Next time slow down, open door, push.
  • 23/11 - @AJHG1000 - You really shouldn't be accounting on your friends to not play Christmas music.
  • 23/11 - @ViscousTraction - Drive-in Whamming.
  • 24/11 - @DCybertron - Your dad was playing Christmas music on purpose. He knew...
  • 25/11 - @Jurdan - And thus begins the countdown to our founder's inevitable whamassacre.
  • 25/11 - @PASM - Wham bam, whammed by the birthday man.
  • 26/11 - @Ze Elephant - The worst part of getting Whammed is those few seconds where you're not sure if what you're listening to is Last Christmas or not...
  • 26/11 - @Nico_Ble99 - Honestly, do people still use the radio anymore?
  • 26/11 - @Clark - Oblivious to the Wham!
  • 27/11 - @ToyGTone - ToyGTone? More like ToyGTlost. I'm here all night.
  • 27/11 - @Obelisk - You were warned when the cover version started playing. You didn't heed that warning.
  • 27/11 - @CLowndes888 - Taken out by brother. Moments later, takes out brother. And not for lunch.
  • 28/11 - @ASSCVCCS - AGHGHDJSGDASJGFSDKUFGWYEF
  • 28/11 - @Dylan - 1) You were listening to talk radio. B) They were discussing Christmas Music. The only logical conclusion is Profit Whamming.
  • 28/11 - @wvmgmidget - Two Whams in the head, know they're dead.
  • 28/11 - @Obelisk's... dad - "5:55, 11/28. Whammed! Heard Taylor Swift cover immediately followed by the original song."
  • 30/11 - @niky - The music obviously sucked so I hope the burrito was extra delish.
  • 30/11 - @Revoy - Schrödinger's Wham: If you hear it before you've signed up, are you Whammed or not Whammed?
  • 02/12 - @W3HS - Next time you should get Caller ID.
  • 03/12 - @GTracerEHTeam - You went to your girlfriends work do. It was Everything She Wants, but was it worth it?

  • 04/12 - @Naveek Darkroom - Buy Wham get Wham Free.
  • 05/12 - @MUSC4EVER - X Factor. More like Rekt Factor. (I'm losing creativity in writing these).

  • 06/12 - @optiongamers - "Why yes, I would like a side of Wham!"
  • 06/12 - @TJ13 - Whammed as a result of relationship drama I won't delve into.
  • 07/12 - @ryzno - Rynzo's reaction to hearing the song.
  • 07/12 - @Moglet - Wham doesn't even have the decency to knock before coming in.
  • 08/12 - @ThrasherDBS - The only person at home was George.
  • 09/12 - @m8h3r - Second one to fall because of a work party. I guess the only solution is to stop working...
  • 10/12 - @Driving Park - Hearing the song while playing a concert is a legitimate reason to smash your guitar.
  • 10/12 - @fortbo - Getting whammed at the dentist must be difficult to sink your teeth into.
  • 10/12 - @Kryption - The hair supply store? Is that where you buy hair?
  • 11/12 - @Flex0r - WhamsApp.
  • 11/12 - @GTRacer22 - Party Rock Whamthem.
  • 11/12 - @TheSpaceBear - Taylor Swift is the Wham before the storm.

  • 16/12 - @Heldenzeit - Kung Pao Chicken and a Spring Wham.
  • 16/12 - @Ken - I'm surprised I didn't have to personally call you and Wham you myself.
  • 16/12 - @YoshiMaster2 - Whammed by his sister. (That doesn't sound wrong, does it?)
  • 17/12 - @Northstar - Made the decision of suffering the song rather than suffering the cold. Was it worth it, Northstar? Was it?
  • 17/12 - @Shaun - In a stunning twist of events, Shaun's family has turned against him in his time of need.
  • 18/12 - @TheKitten - Made the mistake of watching part of Love, Actually. A Christmas movie.... With Christmas music.

  • 23/12 - @TS050 - This is why I don't social media with you bastards.

  • 23/12 - @Cano - Screw you, @Jordan.

  • 24/12 - @Peter. - "Son, why are you shouting?" "I listened to Last Christmas! What? No! I'm not insane!"
  • 24/12 - @bluemoon_19 - Suffer Jordan's wrath anywhere in the world thanks to mobile browsing!
  • 24/12 - @ECGadget - Almost subconsiously suppressed the song long enough to avoid it. Or would repress be a better word?

  • 28/12 - @ClydeYellow
  • 28/12 - @NP - The year is coming to a close, but @Jordan is not yet finished with his ruthless Whamming.

I'm in once again. Best part about being on GTP has to be this. Let's try and keep that perfect record intact.

Three years and counting, Wham-free. Hard mode as well.

Will have another go, but this time I don't expect to survive (new job.)

I'm wondering how Jordan will top his efforts from the last two times; making it default background music to the forum home page and PMing everyone involved with a link to it.

My goal this year isn't to not be whammed but to avoid whamming until winter break. Until then, I must attempt to avoid whamming.
