First off, sorry for the delay. The event itself Saturday night was a bit overwhelming as it was the single most packed event we’ve ever had at the store. It was also ridiculously hard to choose a winner so thank you all for giving us and Rachel a break.
Second, we’d like to thank each and every filmmaker who participated in this contest. We received 37 entries from all over the world and even better than getting all these great videos was that nearly every email we received told of how much fun was had making them. On to what you’ve been waiting for…
CONGRATS to polyethyleneguy, Lucas Leyva and frorojas1 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize, respectively! We (Rachel + Sweat) will be awarding cash to all three entries and are even pitching in extra because they were all great in their own ways and we think all were worthy of praise, YouTube hits, cash money and love.
Watch all three videos below, and thanks again. Stay tuned for more giveaways (FriendsWithYou art + Henry Rollins tickets this week!), contests and more from Sweat.
LucasLeyva’s thugged-out version…. In much the same way that Rachel’s sound isn’t the kind of music you’d expect to come out of Miami, Lucas’ video was definitely NOT what you’d expect to see go along with her music, but it works to hilarious effect.
Fro Rojas’ adorable kid-filled romp with cameos from FriendsWithYou toys and Crayola crayons (nice):
Thanks again everyone!
