ITM presents 2009 Fail Awards

As November winds down and the summer season begins to kick in we’re already seeing the official staples of this time of year; malls have been decked out in gawdy Christmas themes and already there are a host of ‘Best of 2009’ lists circulating out there.

In that spirit ITM has been tracking back over 2009, thinking about what has stood out the most over the past year. But we’re switching things up this year and kicking off the dash to the finish of 2009 on a different note, focussing on the weird, the WTF and the spectacular fails of 2009. Yes, it’s our very first Fail Awards.

Undeniably there have been plenty of blundering fails to sift through in 2009, from boneheaded police and government initiatives, to fake DJing, dodgy musical collaborations, hissy fits, meltdowns, facepalms and very literal shit storms. So join us, as inthemix counts down 2009’s biggest, baddest, and best fails, awarding the inaugural Golden Kanye to the person behind the year’s most epic fail.
