Foursquare and MTV's GTL Jersey Shore Badge

MTV and Foursquare Partner For Jersey Shore-Themed GTL Badge

The last time MTV and Foursquare partnered for a badge, it was a respectable Get Yourself Tested badge to encourage everyone to get tested for STDs. Now, in celebration of tonight's Jersey Shore season three premiere, Foursquare is launching a new MTV-themed badge, the GTL badge, which stands for the iconic JS-coined phrase "gym, tan, laundry."

To earn the badge, you must first follow MTV on Foursquare and then have to check into one location for each action in a seven-day period: the gym, a tanning salon or the beach, and a laundromat (or, your own laundry room, presumably). As a not-so-secret fan of Jersey Shore (at least as a guilty indulgence), I'm excited about the badge, but the health nerd in me can't help advocating against tanning salons — hit the beach if you can (wear sunscreen!) or try out a spray tan. No Foursquare badge is worth skin cancer!
