Our Favorite Submissions from GISHWHES 2016!

3 Min Read

Misha Collins’ G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen) is officially underway, and with only two days left in the scavenger hunt, we’re bringing you some of our favorite items and submissions from the hunt this year. (For those Gishers who are worried about the secrecy of the project, rest assured we have been cleared to post these!)

Each year, thousands of people participate in the scavenger hunt, from over 100 countries. Other celebrities have gotten involved including William Shatner and Chris Pratt, as well as Zachary Levi said this year at NerdHQ that he’d be participating.

See some of our favorite submissions so far below!

Challenge #13: It’s a well-known fact that Pablo Picasso was a huge “Supernatural” fan. He painted portraits of Mark Sheppard, Jensen Ackles, Ruth Connell, Sam Smith, Richard Speight Jr., Matt Cohen, Jared Padalecki, Andrew Dabb, Rob Benedict, Misha Collins, Bob Singer, and many of the other cast and crew members. Sadly, until now, these great works have been lost to the world. Fortunately, your team has unearthed one of these priceless works.

Challenge #42: Let’s see a picture of you and a friend, dressed as Jedi knights, enjoying a root beer float at the White Turkey Drive-In in Conneaut, Ohio, or at another 1950s-style dining facility. Bonus points for being served by a Sith. – L.S.

Challenge #77: Oil and water don’t mix, but in this case we’ll make an exception. Paint a portrait of a live model while both you and the model are scuba diving. Your subject(s) must be wearing formal attire and you must be wearing a beret while at your easel.

Challenge #167: Justin Guarini can be a “Lil Sweet” at times: DietDrPepper.com. Using nothing but forced perspective and a disproportionately large, “weird, unusual or scary” object that you wouldn’t want to be smaller than, make yourself look tiny.
