Hollister 1978 Volkswagen Microbus winner Lizzy Marola - Click above for high-res image gallery

Hollister and Facebook have teamed up to take social media to new and lofty heights. The clothing company just wrapped up a contest in which users were invited to submit photos of their derrières in Hollister jeans. Both guys and girls could enter for a chance to take home one very awesome, custom 1978 Volkswagen Microbus, complete with all the surf gear you'd need to at least pretend like you're a beach bum. Facebook users were invited to judge the competing rears and vote on their favorites, and one rump stood above the rest.

Lizzy Marola entered the contest at a Hollister store on a whim and wound up winning the eyes of enough voters to take home the bus of her dreams. Marola is a freshman at Coastal Carolina University, so there's at least some chance that those long boards will hit the water in the near future.

The Microbus was delivered to Marola at her home in Torrington, Connecticut recently on a trailer before being inspected and registered. If you're interested to see the image that won it for her, click here.

      So a hot over privileged girl who has probably never known what it is to truly earn anything wins a sweet bus like that because she takes a pic of her wearing a pair of jeans that show more of her ass than jean and is posted all over the internet? I love what excess and porn have done for this country. God Bless the U.S.A.!

      The girl is cute but, girls from Puerto Rico have waaaaaay better behinds than that one. If the contest was available to PR, some girl from over here would have won.

        Aww, you killed it for me! That is the lamest trade ever!

      Good for her. Cute little butt to park in the pretty neat VW.

      Hate to nit-pick, but it's just "Torrington", not "torrington college".

      The ONLY reason I care is because that's my home town.

      this story is useless without the winning pic or other representative shot of her kiester.

      Interesting enough on her FB page it shows she just got a A4 Convert for christmas or something. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150369329745273&set=a.10150281255415273.510247.680950272

        If she did let say sold it, it would never be enough to get a new A4 convert. Then again having your top down in an A4 in the middle of winter in the North East doesn't sound much fun, specially since I hear it can get down to negative temps.

        Looks like the last comment on the picture on 12/25 points to her selling the bus and getting the A4. It said "Shoulda kept the friggin bus."
        • 3 Years Ago
        In the second pic, you can see the A4 in the background, and the article posted earlier here is from after she posted the A4 pic. I'm hoping she made the right choice and kept both! (then again, if she's not the type to really get the most out of the VW, maybe she should sell it to someone who would.)

      The gallery appears to be missing the most important picture of all.
