Day 43: Playing with Barbies PAYS OFF!!

TODAY I WON $9,500!!
I won the Barbie commercial contest that I entered last week.  I split the cashity-cash in half with my co-producer Garrett.  We also gave money to the lovely ladies who were in the video and to the crew (some of whom were lovely ladies too).  So I end up pocketing $4,000.  It felt awesome to win, but equally awesome to be able to pay some really incredible people that gave their time and blind trust to  Garrett and me in this crazy contest endeavor.  Thanks Raina, Danielle, Robin, Ana, and the guy who color corrected the video who I never met cuz Garrett knows you and I don't and he didn't tell me your name but if he did I forgot it so sorry but thanks to you too. 

2011 Earnings so far:  $5,976.00

Today's Contest:  I am not mentioning the contest I am entering today.  It's a creative contest that people could enter in against me.  I'm all for some healthy competition, but I know that there are people who read this blog who would kick my ass in a creative death match...So I choose to mask myself today and be...Ninja Blogger.


  1. Yes, yes, yes! I am so psyched for you and Garrett! You're truly an inspiration, Fletch.
