At last, the contest has concluded, and TalkRadar has announced the winner. It’s a little past the two-hour mark (you read that right) but SamueltehG33k took the top prize by a narrow margin.
Now, I know he didn’t do the whole song, but he did do it in person, and the repeated takeaway shot was so silly it got me laughing. Jude actually liked my other favorite, 1CrazedPenguin1’s LittleBigPlanet entry, slightly more:
So I turned it over to Chris at Radar for the tiebreaker. He said he thought the guy who actually went out to Wal-Mart with a camcorder should get points for bravery. So there you go. Samuel gets the media player and Penguin gets the Sorry! board game. Chris has both prizes and will probably be sending them your way soon.
I know it was a tall order — video is not as easy to create as, say, a poem or even a Photoshop joke — so I appreciate that people even gave it a shot.
(As for the song ideas that the TDar guys pitch…I recommend they use their fine recording equipment and do ’em their damned selves.)
New contest TBA shortly. This one will be a little easier.
