Mr. Bean gets a media player

'Blaze' limited edition could win ticket to premiere

The player otherwise seems fairly unremarkable, available in 1GB black and 2GB pink for about $93 and $117 respectively. But there's one more thing--if you do buy one, you could win a ticket to the premiere of the movie.
