Every once in a while I come across a blog post that just cracks me up. Usually I'm at Kristina P.'s place when this happens (and her last post really did crack me up) but once in a while I'm not. Today I came across this heeelarious post at Rabbit in the Headlights. It's short and sweet and doesn't take much time to read: Dude, What's With My Car?
So yesterday I announced my video contest and within hours I got my first video entry.
From my apostate brother, Stephen!
He's always been one of my biggest supporters when it comes to my writing. (And quite honestly, I think he secretly wishes I was more like Crash in real life.)
So you wanna get a sneak peak at the video?
Can I give a disclaimer first?
1. Pinky promise none of the photos in the video are actual footage from my house. Except the video portion, which came from last Thanksgiving. But I think Stephen has manipulated the footage because somehow he has captured videographic evidence of me inviting my in-laws to move in with us.
That never happened. Pinky promise.
2. If I ever did get a maid, I would not, I repeat NOT, let Stephen pick out her uniform. Mostly because my hub no speaka French.
My hub is more of a Brady Bunch kinda guy. Pinky promise!
And without further ado, thank you Stephen! The video is a gas and I lub it. LY!
For the rest of you who are thinking of entering the video contest, let me clarify that you don't HAVE to pretend you are me trying to convince the SAM-e judges to pick me. I was thinking more along the lines of YOU telling the judges why I am qualified for the job.
Okay, here are the contest rules I posted yesterday:
I'm hosting a contest. A video contest. I've got two sponsors who want me to win and are donating $100 cash each to help me get more votes and views.
I'm targeting teens and tweeners, but anyone can enter. Alls you have to do is make a DEB-e for SAM-e video--30 secs-2 minutes long. It can be dumb. Or fun. Or funny. Or serious. Or gangsta. Preferably a video which starts off by saying "Hi, my name is Deb, and I approve this message." (LOL) (Click here if you don't get that and you want to because you can't stand being on the outside of an inside joke.)
You can dance or sing or talk, but whatever you do pretend the judges are watching. You need to tell/show/coerce/convince the judges why I would make the best Good Mood Blogger.
The video is due Sunday night. You will need to upload your video to YouTube then send me the URL so I can embed it on my blog Monday. Once the videos are posted you will need to rally your peeps to vote for your video (and vote for me while they're at it.) (Gosh, where did I come up with brilliant plan, you ask? hmmmm . . . beats me.)
The voting will run Mon, the 6th through Friday, the 10th. Which just so happens to be the last day of the SAM-e competition.
There will be two winners. (More if I can get more sponsors.) Each winner will receive $100 cash for Christmas.
I'm doing this because I really want to win this job. And I need to show the judges that I'm EXCITED. Even though I'm not excited. I'm tired. (But tired in an EXCITED way.)
Oh, and by the way, even though I'm number 12 in the race, I'm number 6 in the video views-- only 150 views from fourth place.
Sooooooo I'm actually posting my video here in case you want to click on it and increase my numbers.
No pressure, but MAHALO in advance. : )
