      So the video submissions were due on 7/31 at midnight. I am interested to hear about all of the videos. Do we have a count on the number of videos submitted, themes people chose, etc.

        This year the theme was a little easier because they had a random generator which gave you three items of which two had to be included in your video. The two items I ended up with were a plunger and a newspaper. Joey offered me camera video of Rick reading the newspaper in the morning but I turned it down when I heard where he was reading it.

          I just showed my video to Anita for the first time

          She didn't get it

          The plot is pretty weak but it has love, romance, poetry, explosions, drama, suspense, futuristic settings and of course, potty humor

          I may have tried to put too much in a 4 minute movie

          I'm not even sure it meets the 3 criteria Ridgid was looking for
          Persuasiveness
          Creativity
          Entertainment Value

            Holy Cow I just read the rules and I almost blew it. The rules say:

            RIDGID® tool users are invited to post an original one-to-four minute video. The idea is yours, the only stipulation is that RIDGID is verbalized and shown at least once and that you use (2) of the (3) items in the random item generator. The RIDGID logo must be clearly visible (i.e. – on a tool, shirt, etc.) and the verbal mention of RIDGID must be audible. If these rules are not adhered to, the video will be disqualified. RIDGID will choose five finalist videos which will be posted on RIDGID.com for voting. Click here for all the rules.

            -------------------------

            I guess I need to pay better attention to details. While the Ridgid Logo was shown several times I never told anyone to verbalize the word Ridgid. Thank goodness one of the "child talents" did it without being asked to.

                I almost missed that too Mark

                Luckily I went back and read the rules before I sent it in.

                I think they will be posted here in a few days

                  I was shocked at how well my "talent" did so and I am really excited to share it with everyone. I believe the videos get posted on the 10th of this month.

                    I hope you paid your talent appropriately for adhering to the rules that you were not aware of. That should get them bonus checks!

                    I also hope you followed all labor laws.

                      Yes two of the "talent" received plane tickets to Ohio with a room to stay in during the Roundup. The third "talent" got a new squeaky toy and some extra food in her bowl. We are currently investigating child labor laws and ASPCA guidelines to ensure we stayed within the "spirit" of the law.

                        An update for those of you wondering where we stand with the video contest.

                        I'm afraid we didn't have the submission numbers we had hoped for based on the number of registrations (nearly 500) and a fair number of those that did send something in where disqualified for any number of reasons. That being the case, we had to cancel the contest.

                        For those that did send in a video, thank you for the effort! I'll be reaching out to you starting today and offering a little "thank you" package for your hard work!

                                I am both saddened and relieved by this as well.
