I know what this was about... he was just stress-testing the servers. We all got to be beta testers for the night! :-)
In reality, I hope the prizes he's giving out means he got a sweet sponsorship for the Super Bowl that he can put into a new server

Tony wasn't prepared for the response of giving away 1000 in gift certificates :)
People love winning money!

I'd say it's rather difficult to even be able to judge just how much a server can take until you push it to its limits. That being said, there really wasn't much Tony could realistically do to "prepare" for this.

I wouldn't say unprepared, but likely underestimated how many wanted in on the commercials polls.

I was beginning to wonder if I was on healthcare.gov. Just kidding with you Tony!

It seems to be very hard to plan for such things, we're always hearing about demand overwhelming capacity for this and that.

Too much user activity crashed the servers

After such a challenge shouldn't that be taken into account?
