GUNNAR Optiks Supports Milkfat’s World Record Video Game Marathon
Sam Braithwaite to play Heros of Newerth for 72 Straight Hours
Thursday, January 26, 2012
It’s not every day that history is made and records are shattered, but this weekend looks to bring both to the GUNNAR community! From Thursday, January 26 – Sunday, January 29, Sam “MilkFat” Braithwaite will attempt to break the world record for longest video game marathon session, competing in Heroes of Newerth at Howie’s Game Shack in Mission Viejo, CA. The current record is 52 consecutive hours, but Sam plans on grinding for 76 straight hours. Fortunately, Sam will be wearing GUNNAR gaming eyewear throughout the course of his epic quest to enter the Guinness Book of World Records!
GUNNAR Optiks will be on hand with S2Games, Monster, and Twitch to support Sam and the HON community with demos and a special deal for on-site participants and those watching the stream!
The entire event will be streamed live on Twitch.TV with an on-site tournament event taking place at Howie’s Game Shack and all of Sam’s proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. What’s more: Honcast will be covering select matches and events. Viewers are even invited to play against Sam! You can see Sam play with fellow elite HON players, viewers, friends and maybe even some super cute girls. If you are newer to GUNNAR, HoN or just want to learn how to get better and stay protected with GUNNARS, then this stream is perfect for you!

As a bit of history, Sam has been playing competitive games in the MobA/DotA/ARts genre for a good seven years. After experiencing the visual toll that comes with prolonged gaming sessions, Sam turned to GUNNAR Optiks to help stay focused, play longer, and protect his eyes throughout the grueling training leading up to this event. With prescription Modern Warfare 3 GUNNARS, Sam is well-equipped for this weekend’s legendary attempt.
For those Southern California fans, everyone’s invited so feel free to come check out the event at Howie’s Game Shack! Join the fun on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/events/162818793827145/
