Los Angeles, April 25, 2007 ´┐Ż Do you consider yourself the world's biggest fan of the FX comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? If so, here's your chance to prove it.

In order to find the ultimate fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, FX is launching the "Sunny SuperFan" contest. Beginning May 8th, fans can logon to www.fxnetworks.com/superfan and, using ViTrue's Branded Video Community technology, submit a short one-minute video telling FX what makes them the ultimate fan of the comedy series.

The first 500 entrants who submit their video will receive an It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Paddy's Irish Pub t-shirt. The top 20 videos will be selected by FX and posted to the site's voting area. Fans will be able to view and vote for their favorite video entries and see the results via a live tally. After being narrowed down to the Top 5 vote-getters, FX will choose the winner and announce it on the air in July.
