On the Campaign Trail with Victoria
Do you sass that hoopy Victoria, candidate for 2021 Towel Day Ambassador? Victoria has shared her campaign plans with us, we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on this frood when the voting starts!
“As TDA, I promise to spread the word about Towel Day, to encourage towel carrying, and to ensure a connected, informative, and inclusive Towel Day environment. To this end, if elected I will host events on Towel Day and throughout the year that aim to connect froods from across the known universe, celebrate the galactic hitchhiking spirit, and provoke a bitter but healthy competition amongst towel fans.”
Vogon Poetry, by Victoria
“On a springtime day i sat here writing
wretched poetry so painfully exciting
that surely I’ll become a lauded troubadour
whose verse is so insufferable and agony-igniting
it makes the spectator’s vital organs sore
my audience with pain I’m blighting
and their legs off they’re biting
they writhe and scream “no more, no more”
and against their binds they’re fighting
which i take to mean they want an encore
I hope with this poem I’m inciting
interest in composing and reciting
join in the fun i do implore
come to the poetry contest I’m inviting
and you could win a t-shirt”
Under Victorian leadership you can expect:

Vote Victoria for Towel Day Ambassador 2021!
What is the Towel Day Ambassador Contest?
Each year since 2011 Hitchhiker fans and Douglas Adams fanatics vote to democratically decide on a representative for Earth as the Intergalactic Towel Day Ambassador. Contestants are asked to make a two minute YouTube video, explaining why they would be right for the job.
While the Contest is run independently by our friends over at the Towel Day Ambassador Contest page, here at Galactic Hitchhikers it’s one of our most sacred institutions. In our community there are no former Ambassadors, once elected they have the job for life.
While the real prize is the honor of representing our fandom, this year Galactic Hitchhikers is teaming up to provide some hoopy swag to this year’s new Ambassador. Read more here. Make sure you head over to like and follow the Towel Day Ambassador page on Facebook to be the first to hear when voting starts!
Check out all eight entries in the contest!
