At work we are trying to get people to make videos that showcase our products. In order to do so we are having a video contest and the winner gets a $1,000 gift certificate to UncommonGoods. Sure it isn’t cash, but think of all of the Christmas presents you could get. You would be the most popular daughter/son/mother/father/brother/sister/etc. ever. We have no idea what type of response this will generate. It could be hundreds or it could be three. I highly recommend putting something together. I know many of you are very talented and could come up with some great ideas. It could well be worth it. Wink wink, nudge nudge.As part of this campaign we put together a couple of example videos. One is of my co-worker’s dog and the other is of Simon. Currently, the dog video is getting viewed a ton more (thanks to facebook, grrrrr) which puts me at the losing end of a “friendly” competition. This is where you come in. Please go here and watch this video over and over again. We must prove to the world (and to my co-worker) that Simon is way better than a mangy old dog.
