You already saw yesterday that our favorite superbowl car commercial was Dodge’s “Last Stand“. Well we just found out from Dodge themselves that following on the heels of all that testosterone will be a contest dubbed the “Super Beard Bowl”. Contestants will send pictures of their clean shaven faces to Dodge’s Facebook page as a “before” marker. Then when the contest ends on March 21st the “after” pictures will be posted and voted on by the Facebook universe. Whoever the interweb chooses as the best beard winner will have their choice to attend any Dodge Motorsport race they want (we would suggest a World Challenge series race, those Comp Coupes are awesome). You can check out the full press release and rules below.

The Super Beard contest pays tribute to the all-new Dodge Charger R/T commercial “Man’s Last Stand.” Whether he’s walking the dog at 6:30 a.m., eating more fruit, putting the toilet seat down or watching vampire TV shows with his significant other, “Man’s Last Stand” offers an inside look at the lengths men will go to in order to drive the car they want. The all-new 60-second spot, featuring the 2010 Dodge Charger R/T, aired during the second quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 7.
Through the new commercial, the Dodge Car Brand begins to re-establish its commitment to consumers who love driving expressively designed vehicles that serve as a form of self expression and are exhilarating to drive, while informing all viewers that the Dodge brand has a renewed energy and focus.
