Just for Fun: My Folgers Jingle

I found this jingle contest for Folgers coffee. They want people to come up with an original jingle that ends with the familiar "The best part of wakin' up is Folgers in your cup" line. They also want you to make a video of yourself performing it. So I did that, and I have entered my video. In a month they will pick the top 10 entrees, and at that point the public will vote for their favorite jingle. That will hone it down to the top 5. All 5 go to New York to perform their jingles, and win $5,000.00 if they make 2nd through 5th place. The winner gets $25,000.00 and may appear in a commercial.

I figure that's more than I make in a year, and video business is slow right now, so why not go for it? That prize would relieve some stress, and it's really fun to make jingles too. Below is a link to my YouTube video of the jingle. I hope you enjoy it! And I hope I can make it to the end with your help. I'll write again if I make the top 10. There is like a month long window to vote, so it won't be a rush or anything.

Enjoy! And just by playing my video, it makes it appear higher in searches on YouTube, which in turn makes it available for more to see. So if you play my video a few times, it will help me out right now. Thanks!

Shot with a T2i for the performance stuff, and an EX1 for anything with Folgers in it. Rode NT2000 mic on vocals & guitar.

This sounds best at 720P or above!
