Day 34: Sloppy Seconds

2011 Earnings so far:  $1,735.50

Today's Contest:  OVC's (Online Video Contests) "2nd Chance" Contest
Prize:  $500
Rules:  Enter a video you shot for another online commercial contest, that for some god unknown reason, you didn't win.

My friend Garrett and I yet again shot a commercial for a contest.  This was last summer, and was for Skin-it.  Skin-its are fancy (aka awful) decals that you can put on your phone, on your laptop or even your wall.  Things like your favorite Monet, your favorite sports team or even your favorite Vampire.

We created a commercial that totally capitalized on and ripped off the pop culture New Jersey phenomenon.  Instead of Jersey Housewives...Jersey Phones, complete with big hair, gossip and glittah.

We lost! We were furious!  We were roooooooobbed (sung with a little trill at the end there).   Well, even if we didn't win we shoulda gotten some kinda honorable mention for tiny prop and wig usage.   For the Love a Linda...we turned a thimble into a tiny Solo cup (filled with what we presumed was a screwdriver....that Val ipod was such a lush).
 Now's our chance to rightfully claim our prize in this Sloppy Seconds kinda contest.

  2. My aunt's ex-boyfriend was a still photographer for Stayin' Alive. He might've even taken that picture. This is not a joke. I would NEVER joke about such important things.
