Rockstar Announces Winner of Their Movember Charity Event

Wanted: This Outlaw’s Handlebar ‘Stache, As Will Be Seen in Red Dead Redemption

February 6, 2010 – Rockstar Games announced the chosen moustache from their Red Dead Redemption Movember charity event. Movember is an event that offers men the opportunity to grow moustaches throughout November in order to raise awareness of men’s health issues including prostate cancer.

Rockstar added a twist to Movember by asking gamers to submit their best moustache and then asked voters to choose which moustache was their favorite. The winner’s likeness would be added to an outlaw roaming the frontier of Red Dead Redemption, allowing gamers to hunt him down and bring him in dead or alive.

The winner, Charles Leece from Canada, grew an epic handlebar moustache that could only make this writer think of several years ago when his beloved Montreal Canadiens grew handlebars instead of the typical playoff beard for the Stanley Cup playoffs. It was epic. Just like this ‘stache.

Check out the images of Mr. Leece’s likeness and look forward to hunting him down in Red Dead Redemption when it comes to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 27 in North America.
