SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Esurance released a formal statement about its Election Insurance April Fools' Day prank that created a furor of demand from Americans this election year. As a consolation to those interested in the faux Election Insurance, the company is announcing a $10,000 sweepstakes for one lucky winner to explore their future homeland. To enter, people only need to tell Esurance where they'd go using #MakeYourEscapeSweeps* on Twitter. Watch the video explaining how to win: https://youtu.be/m10Xx3QNVHI
Statement from Esurance:
In April, we announced a new product, Election Insurance, which is not actually real. The April Fools' Day prank offered protection of people's abandoned homes for the next four years while they flee the United States following the presidential election. For example, standard options included weekly home maintenance, premium options included the holiday overachiever, and platinum options included a simulated teenage breakups.
The American public's demand for Election Insurance in April was truly overwhelming. While that offering still isn't real, we heard you loud and clear, and want to offer one lucky person the chance to explore a new potential homeland should the election not go their way. Beginning today, tweet where you'd like to explore, whether a cabin in Canada or chateau in France, using #MakeYourEscapeSweeps on Twitter for the chance to win $10,000. The sweepstakes will run through Thursday, October 13.
Launching prior to tonight's debate, the Election Insurance Sweepstakes gives people a real opportunity to plan their move for the next four years. We hope this offering provides at least one person with consolation and peace of mind going into the next presidential term.
