Ahoy, me hearties!
Th’ wenches ‘o Social Media ‘n HR, along wit’ a few scurvy dogs, have planned a right jolly day ‘o piratey hijinks fer th AVAST pirates. Every hour when th’ bell chimes, a new task is assigned. The treasure hunting has finished and prizes given away.
Th’ best scurvy pirates come from AVAST!
Our team received seven tasks in different categories to challenge geeky and creative minds. The response was great and we are sharing with you only a fraction of what has been happening here.
Jolly good idea ya social media ‘n HR wenches, garrr!
But run out of rum and you walk the plank! ~ Jan, accounting department
Avast who is coming next

let’s cut their throats with our smart codes

One more yer’old powder monkeys!
The floor is dirty and supplies are rotten,
but we keep on sailing, we won’t be forgotten,

we are the sailors working for Avast! ~ Tomas, BI
Advance, ye mates! Cross your lances full before me. Let me touch the axis and drink thy rum, ye harpooneers! ~ Andre e-commerce
A pirate ship named Avast,
Was sailing accross the sea,
The sailors organized a party and had a blast,
But the Captain was pissed as his glass was empty,
Where did all the rum go?
Where did all the rum go?
Arrrgh, the Captain was complaining over and over,
They will all be hangover! ~ Sarah e-commerce
Ahoj sailors developers!
I see some red,
Better when green,
Oops it’s again red,
Now code is clean,
And #TDD is great!
Code is poetry when #coding at Avast ~ Jonas BI
Malware are #FF0000
AVAST is the #FF9900
All my rums are belong to you!

Avast! Bloody Avast! Hey,

Jump, shot & sink the boats.
Down the sea of rum & dry throats. ~ Pavel BI

Who will it be?
When Martin Zima of the Avast Marketing team established the avast! Facebook page on December 2nd, 2008, he could not imagine, that nearly four years later this page would have two million fans! That’s a 2 with six zeros – 2,000,000. None of us could imagine it. And now, we are waiting in anticipation to welcome our 2 millionth Facebook fan.
Who will it be?
Let me give you the bigger picture: avast! antivirus is a Czech product; AVAST Software has it’s HQ in Prague; Prague has less than 1.3 million inhabitants, and the entire Czech Republic struggles to reach 11,000,000 people. Having a Facebook page with 2,000,000 fans is an outstanding result, and we can say that we are likely the biggest Czech-founded page in the world.
This however is not our success alone, but YOURS too. Without your LIKES, we wouldn’t be getting ready for this celebration. Therefore we are preparing some nice surprises for you. Every celebration however requires some preparation. :) This “for play” can sometimes be even more enjoyable than the actual party.
We estimate that we will reach 2,000,000 fans around October 27th. Maybe the 2 millionth fan will be one of your friends. YOU can help us speed this process up, so we can celebrate sooner. How? Every day we will have a little quiz, poll, or question for you. Every day you will get a chance to win a license for avast! Internet Security or avast! Pro for Mac. Every day you will get a chance to have your picture on our cover image along with your “FREEky Security Tip of the Day.”
Invite your friends to become avast! fans and participate as well, as the most active fans (check your position as avast! TOP FREEk here) will be awarded with… No, I don’t want to spoil the surprise. We will keep you posted.
Follow our Facebook page, answer our quizzes, invite your friends. Simply have fun celebrating 2,000,000 fans with avast!
