Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video

Positively Cleveland is hosting a contest for the best "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video" in response to a recent video spoof making it's rounds online that allegedly took 14 million dollars to make. The rules of the contest are to make a video highlighting Cleveland, under 2 minutes long and costing no more then 2 dollars.

You know I had to enter. My kids worked very hard "acting" and choosing their most favorite places in Cleveland to visit, all weekend long, in hopes of winning a night at the Great Wolf Lodge and water park. Their little hearts are set on winning. Pleeeeeaaaaase vote for us by logging onto YouTube and clicking on the existing stars under our video.

That's all it takes.

And if you live in NE Ohio please pass it onto your friends/family/co-workers. I see all of you in my stat counter, working hard at Cleveland companies, while on classychaos. Heh. I won't tell, promise.





The contest ends in just 10 days that's 10 whole days of the kids asking me if we are the winners on May 28th, 2009. The top 5 YouTube videos with the most views/comments/ratings are the semi-finalists.

I love that song from Jewel--I grew up in Bath outside Cleveland (don't feel bad if you've never never heard of it--there's one stop light in the entire town!) and some of the shots bring back memories--Cleveland sure has changed--that river is no longer on fire I see ;)
Good luck!!!

I watched the video and rated it 5 stars on YouTube. Is that all you need to do to vote?

Al_Pal said...

Such a cute video! Since you sent your thanks via DEx, I decided to follow you. I'd love some follow-back love, if you've got the time!
Hilariously, I'm VDog's older sister, but people don't usually guess that, since she's married with kid & I "just" live with my boyfriend. :P

Cheers!
