Among them is rapper Soulja Boy, best known for his hit song "Crank That."
So just what did Soulja Boy say to earn himself the coveted opportunity to become a Glass Explorer?
"#ifihadglass I would put it in my new music video @projectglass," the he tweeted the second to last day before the contest ended.
Obviously, this is could be a great marketing opportunity for Google. While some may argue that Soulja Boy isn't quite as popular as he used to be, he has a pretty healthy Twitter following of more than 5 million people. Though, it's nowhere close to artist Justin Bieber, who has more than 36 million followers.
In response to the news, Soulja Boy tweeted, "@projectglass yeah! so cool thanks." So we figure that means Soulja Boy will accept the invitation and fork over $1,500 to get his hands on a pair of Glass.
Based on the responses, most people seem to be pretty happy for Soulja Boy. Except for one guy named Hunter McIntosh, who tweeted, "@projectglass @souljaboy you have got to be kidding me."
