OnePlus is building the hype, asking 'What would you do for the 2'

So, OnePlus is definitely not shying away from some outrageous marketing schemes to build the hype.  Some people might want to say "hey, cool your jets... pump the brakes"; but the reality of it is that it works.  We're suckers for it.  There's over a million people asking for invites (considering they said they sold about 1.5million of the first offering, that's impressive - how many will get invites is another story).

Those of us who /facepalm are in the minority.

The latest scheme they've come up with is #WWYDFT2

Essentially - what would you do for the 2?

So, they're suggesting a series of challenges, and there's about 4 days left to get in on it.  Pick a challenge and then upload to Youtube or upload an image of what you've done.  And then the folks in the forum get to vote on it.   (again they're really hyping their forum... hrmmm).

Here's some of the Challenges
