A member of my extended family has entered a contest on YouTube. The contest was offered by Malibu Rum. They have a new banana flavored variety and the contest was to create a video to go with the "Banana Boat Song" (Day-O). The young man who entered is a professional magician who performs as Dr. Cardoo (a witchdoctor--thus, the costume you will see). Please vote for his video. The prize is $25,000 which would be incredible for him--witchdoctor magicians don't make a lot of money.

You do have to register with YouTube if you never have done so--but it only takes a minute to do. Simply sign on to His entry is entitled “Malibu Magic” from jolo 16. Entry number 65. (There's a box about halfway down the page that says "Go to entry:" and you can type in 65.)

If you come back to the page, it looks like you can vote again, but the site only counts the first vote you cast each day (per video). The contest runs through June 22nd. I joined in the voting we did for "the teacher of the year," and it was fun. Sploofusers made such a difference there, and I know we could for this kid, too.

Please vote thumbs up for him every day through the 22nd. His mother and I thank you.

If you have Googletalk or gmail, you don't even need to sign up - just sign in with your google user name and password.

I'm in! I love magicians.

I will certainly let you all know if he does win. I am disappointed that the site does not show a running "score" as the one for teacher of the year did. I found that very motivating.

A friend mentioned to me that she thinks the first few entries have an advantage in that a person might start looking at the videos one-by-one and quit long before getting to #65. So she started voting against (thumbs down) those entries. Seems a little mean, but I admit I'm tempted.

Zeedee, towards the bottom of the video page where it says "Voting in Progress", click on "Owner: MalibuBanana", and it shows the most viewed video of the day, week, and month.

As of 5:30am today, his video has had 1,431 views and 43 ratings. He has the 7th highest rating so far out of 75 videos. You can see that info by going further down the page and clicking on "see all 75 favorites".

I didn't know if that had anything to do with the contest votes or if it just referred to the "ratings"--the stars that you can give to any video you watch.

I wish I could think of a way to get more people to vote. It's fun to think he's doing so well.

Youtube does not seem to be webtv compatible. Is there an alternate way to enter?
