Wow, the Ben & Jerry’s contest was fun. So fun, in fact, that we want to jump right into another reader challenge. This time, it’s all about the video.
Here’s the deal. Fester has written you a little ditty about the Occupy Wall Street goons, and has recorded it. It’s called “We Gonna Occupy.” (Guess what it’s about. No really. Guess dammit!)
The thing is, we have no video. Well, okay, we have a video, but it does nothing but flash the lyrics:
We want something funny. Something scary. Something funny and scary. And that’s where you — the most clever readers on the Worldwide Web — come in.
First, watch the video. You’ve probably done that already, so you already know that Fester ain’t no Sinatra, and he ain’t no Edward Van Halen. But he’s a damn sight better than these commie wastes of skin.
Second, download the mp3 version of the song here. (Windows users, do the right-click “Save link as” thing. Mac users, do whatever it is you people do.)
Third, use the song to make a music video. When you’re done, upload it to YouTube and send us a link at tips@TheMorningSpew.com. We’ll review it and, if it meets our ground rules below, we’ll post it here and ensure your immortality.
The first three people to get their videos posted will win a coveted t-shirt from The Morning Spew. (Look, if we had the money, we’d buy you a new Ferrari. But we’re not George Soros, people.) That said, we’ll continue to post videos as long as people want to send them in. Later submissions might not get a t-shirt, but if we post your video, you will receive immortality, high praise, and our undying gratitude.
A few ground rules:
- No nudity, unless you blur it out or otherwise obscure it. (We’re not prudes here, but still.)
- No racism, sexism, etc., unless you’re exposing racism, sexism, etc. by the occupiers.
- Don’t violate anyone’s copyrights — give credit when appropriate and adhere to fair-use principles.
- And most importantly, you must put our URL (www.TheMorningSpew.com) at the beginning and end of the video. You can also give credit to yourself and anyone else, but we gotsta have that URL.
Other than that, you have total creative control. Now go forth and make music videos! Fester sez enjoy!
