Only 1 Week Left!

Welcome!

Since I started the site a few years ago, I wanted to run some sort of Video Contest and today is finally the day!

The goal of this contest is to impersonate your favorite yo-yo player in whatever way you think is best. The winner of this contest will not be determined by the best tricks, but by the best impersonation of the yo-yo player’s style. A few years ago, Jacob “Elephark” Jensen ran a similar video contest and I really enjoyed the results.

Rules:

  • The beginning of your video must feature the GrawrD video intro that you can download: HERE
  • You can impersonate any yo-yo player you want, but one I am more likely to know would be best.
  • The more funny and recognizable your impersonation is, the better.

Prizes:

  • Duncan Mayhem (Courtesy of Chris @ YoYoSkills.com), YoYoFactory Velocity and Mystery Bag of Mystery

How to Enter:

  • Underneath this post, leave a comment with your name, the name of the yo-yoer you are impersonating and a link to your video.
  • Deadline is Friday, September 16th. Winners will be announced the following Monday, September 19th.

If you still aren’t quite sure what I’m looking for, check out the video I entered to Elephark’s contest. It doesn’t have to be quite this elaborate, but the more effort you put in, the more likely you are to win.

 

I look forward to your entries!!!!
