Archuleta 4 President!?...

LEHI Utah — "American Idol" star David Archuleta is bigger now than ever before
— literally. Covering 12 acres, Archuleta's likeness, along with the phrase "Archuleta 4 President," is cut into the cornfield at the 2008 Cornbelly's Corn Maze and Pumpkin Fest
located at Thanksgiving Point. During an election year, corn maze creator and The MAiZE founder, Brett Herbst, said his focus was initially turned to presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. "We really thought of Obama and McCain at first, but everyone we talked to was sick of the candidates," Herbst said. "Then we said, 'Let's do Archuleta."' Herbst said they had to get permission from Archuleta's agent before going forward with the maze. Archuleta garnered more than 40 million votes while competing on "American Idol" earlier this year. Herbst said the corn maze was a good way to honor the Utah native's accomplishment. Maze visitors will have a chance to win an autographed copy of Archuleta's new self-titled album when it's released Nov. 11.
How neat is that!
Have a great Friday!

Interesting...I'm not that big of a "Idol" fan, but if you like him, it's AWESOME! Although it would have been awesome if they had done Palin and McCain!

Very neat, indeed! I'm also a David Archuleta fan... I wish we would've won instead of David Cook though. :( Well,,, I bet David C. doesn't have a corn maze of his pic! :P
