The Funny 15 Contest: Voting Is Now Open!

Update: The Funny 15 winner has been announced. Read about Tom and his winning entry.

Thanks for your many submissions. We’ve narrowed the field down to 15 entries. Now it’s your turn!

The Funny 15 contest is a hunt for the best 15-second pre-roll advertisement created in the past year. We opened the contest to submissions in late September and just made our picks for the top 15. Now we ask you to view the finalists and vote for your favorites.

You can view and vote in the Playkast module below. You’ll need to sign in with your Facebook account, but don’t worry: we aren’t collecting any information. You’re allowed to vote up to three times per day. (Don’t vote for the introduction video; it’s not one of the entries.)

By the way, we helped out some entrants by adding their videos for them. That’s why you’ll see the same name on several entries.

The top vote-getter will receive an Apple iPad ($499 value).

  • November 7: Top 15 pre-roll videos announced.
  • November 7 to 27: Open voting, help choose the best entry.
  • November 28: The winner is announced.

Please help us find the funniest pre-roll around and show that video ads can be fun to watch.

  1. Hey everybody,

    I’m not quite sure if I did everything right:

    I clicked “Respond”, connected with Facebook, Upload a Youtube link and then I saw the video in the Player.

    Do I get any confirmation?

    Thank you!

  2. Hello everyone,

    as a loyal follower of your blog for a quite long time now, I noticed that during the course of the “Funny 15 Contest”, votes of some candidates got unrealistically high in the shortest time. (doubled a day etc. !).

    PS.: I only wanted to remark that and ask to observe the whole thing.
    I think it’s important to be fair here for the applicants.

    Nevertheless, great contest 🙂

    • How do you determine what is realistic? When points can increase by 6 points per person you have to vote, doesn’t it make sense, if all the contestants are not campaigning constantly, to make a push at the tail end of the contest so you don’t have to spend the time campaigning and annoying friends every day during the duration of the contest?
