The Video Contest That Wasn’t, But Then Maybe Was?

The GPS company Tom Tom is running an amazing contest, giving families the chance to go to some exotic locations and drive a special car around to help them “Map Paradise.” Fiji, St. Lucia, Mauritius, etc. I heard about the contest on onlinevideocontests.com, got very excited and instantly started putting together this video for my entry. (To the tune of the melody Tom Tom uses on their site! Clever, right?!?!!)

I’m really happy with how it came out! And ever since we listened to the song 100 times that day, Morty now can be prompted to grab and twist his cheeks if Randi or I say “and the world’s cutest…” so that’s sweet. The only problem is, when I went to go fill in my application and submit, it turns out that this is not a video contest. It’s not even a video OPTIONAL contest. It’s just a short essay contest about why your family deserves to go (which I tried to fill out as hilariously as possible.)

But then I thought, well this thing is made, and I really want to win this contest, so maybe there’s a way to submit it anyway. And I’ve started posting it on every Tom-Tom related site I can find. (Google+, their Facebook page, youtube, etc.) in hopes that maybe they will see the extra effort the Levinson family went to and go ahead and give us a chance at one of those trips (The Fiji entry period ends tomorrow.)

If it doesn’t work, at least we still have footage of Randi jumping out behind a bush in the woods, so that’s pretty great.
