Thank you everyone!

Super stoked that I won! Terrific job by everyone it was a pretty tough competition and I lots of fun making the commercial. Funny things to note: the bomb is actually a fruit cake i got for Christmas, with a old outside garage door opener tied together with some speaker wire i found lying around.

I would like to give a big thanks to Ben for doing the explosion and helping me out with the creative process, Davi for his Brazilian style Jack Bauer, and the people at dealsplus for hosting/judging the contest and one of the best web 2.0 sites out there!

Thanks!

Yea sort of, for beginners its great, really easy to make a movie. But when i was watching my freind use the mac, it looked so simple! I guess the mac is jsut easier to use. Like the part where the screen zooms in on deals plus, look absolutely no hassle at all.

Agreed, although there were only 8 entries, most of the people that submitted their entries spent a lot of their times making their videos, there should be at least one more winner, because its not fair for people that really worked hard on it. I'm not saying that Dchandaman's video is bad or anything, his is really good, but I just think that other people should get another chance in this contest to win a 360.

You guys have already pushed the date back at least one day. If you wanna extend the contest a week, I'm cool with that.
Just be honest and up-front about any changes.

Not trying to be a naysayer here, but I would have to say no because of the fact that it’s unfair to the ones who did get them done on time. That’s part of the stake of this competition. Part of what made it challenging for me is the fact that I only had a few days to do it. You have to know to be ready for this challenge. “AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!!!” LOL!!! But that’s just my opinion. And GI JOE would agree with me.

drudwn replied:
Id say it would depend on if were accepting new videos because we already had lots of time to make them. If we were then No... If its just the people who already submited and met the first deadline then maybe that would help us all with quality...

But then again everyone already knows the ideas we had behind the commercials so maybe its better if we just left them as is... Just things to think about.

I'm down for what the majority wants. Kinda would like to know who would win as they are though :)

Nobody responded to furax and i about how the commercials were being judged btw. Were we going for Classic Style Commercials, Being Creative, Spoofs, Ones With Lots of Info about the Site or what?

I'd say no to the extension, because the rules were pretty simple and the deadline is a deadline and it really isn't fair to the ones who already submitted.

Vin,

What I was trying to say before I ranted on with my GO JOE statement, is that I think it would be very unfair to extend the deadline another week for all the people who met the deadline of the contest. Unless you want to give all the people who where on time a Xbox 360 and let the other people fight it out for a flash drive or something.

If we are going to extend it another week then what is the point of a deadline? Just wondering why do you want to extend it?

TheTrueMaster replied:
No, I dont think that the contest should be extended because there was a deadline for this contest that was set from the beginning, if people really wanted to win that 360, they would have spent a lot of time making it. Just because there were some people that didnt time for whatever reason, doesnt mean that the contest should be extended, you people should have tought about it ahead of time. Thats how life is in the real world, live with it.

What if all the people that made a video have another week to further improve their videos? That would help alot!
And everyone's quality would go up!

so how are the winners going to end up being decided? is it going to be a user-vote, youtube rating/hits, most likely to make it on tv, a mixture of everything??
when i originally came up w/the idea, i was thinkin user vote....just curious what you guys decided on.

ok everyone here we go its past 4AM and I'm DONE! My commercial is surposed to be cheezy/fun and entertaining. Hope you can tell my time was mostly spent on timing with the song. My favorite parts are when they sing "In fact it was a lil bit frightning," and the old lady is chopping her neck in the park lol.. and of course cutting prices long time :-) Enjoy

From the comic relief to the extraordinary Kung Fu fighting this video just tops the charts. Irony may present itself in one of two ways, traditional, or kung fu fighting style. This is obviously the latter, and boy does it work! I would have to say that, hey, before I check anywhere else I would HAVE to check out dealspl.us because why? They are “CHOPPING DOWN PRICES (Long Time)” LoL LoL!!!!!!!!! It doesn’t get any better than this!! Marketing at a genius pace! Taking a fighting stance when it comes to advertisement!
