Los Angeles, CA –  Canoga Park-based adult entertainment powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the Beyond the Countdown sweepstakes. The exciting writing competition gave fans the opportunity to pen a potential sequel to Countdown, director Brad Armstrong’s upcoming end-of-the-world blockbuster. The grand prize was claimed this weekend by a vivacious graduate student named Shannon, who joined Armstrong and Wicked Girl™ jessica drake at the base of Los Angeles’ famed Griffith Observatory Sunday May 20th to view a magnitude 0.9439 solar eclipse. Following the solar event, drake and Armstrong took both their guest and members of the media to renowned Hollywood sushi and sashimi destination Katsuya for a fun-filled evening of traditional Japanese dining.

For her part, Shannon was thrilled to spend the day with the acclaimed director. “I love Wicked. I honestly believe Brad Armstrong makes the best movies in the business.” The energetic twenty-something was equally elated to enjoy some quality time with the luminous Ms. drake. “Years ago, jessica was the first feature entertainer I ever saw! She’s my all-time favorite adult performer.”
