MTV Releases a Jersey Shore GTL Badge

Given the strong partnership that MTV and Foursquare have, I suppose it was only a matter of time before this happened: a Jersey Shore badge.  Jersey Shore is the runaway hit and highest rated show for the network and this badge comes in the aftermath of the MTV New Years Eve party and just before the launch of the new season.  In fact, the unlock text promotes the show details:

Fresh to death! You’ve checked in for the GTL. Don’t miss the new season of the Jersey Shore – Thursdays at 10P/9C on MTV. Now pump that fist and dodge those grenades!

The badge features a fist pump and the letters GTL which is a Jersey Shore acronym for “Gym. Tanning. Laundry.”.  The phrase was coined by Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino who believes this is the key to looking your best.  According to Urban Dictionary, it can also be used to simply mean you are running errands.  This is a category based badge so it is eligible for folks to unlock it anywhere in the world.  Simply follow MTV and check into venues in all the following three categories during a 7 day period: a gym, a tanning salon, and a laundromat/cleaners.  Bet you didn’t see that coming, right?

I have no interest in putting a picture of them on here, but will share a couple funny pics from someecards with you instead:
