Think you can dance better than Napoleon Dynamite? Maybe? Come on, you know you can do it. Don’t be so modest, we all remember how you used to cut it up on the floor when you were five. Now wouldn’t you like to relive those glory days? No? How about for prizes?
Fox Home Entertainment has teamed up with vMix, an up and coming viral video site, to have a contest to promote the impending release of Napoleon Dynamite: Like, The Best Special Edition Ever! DVD. The contest involves a dance off between Napoleon, with his routine from the film, against whatever skills you have. You know, skills, like computer hacking skills, and nunchuck skills, and, of course, dance skills. All you need to do is gather some courage, or whatever you would like to call it, step in front of a camera and make love to the lens. Once you have captured the deed, head over to the contest page and enter your submission.
Prizes for the contest include the Napoleon Dynamite Special Edition DVD, a “Vote for Pedro” t-shirt, a 30 GB video iPod, and a new DVD player. Sweet!
After you do that, go ahead and take a look at the competition. Even if you don’t submit, you can watch and vote on the other routines. Don’t be shy, be sure to check it out!
Sadly, you won’t find anything from yours truly over there, but you may find some votes from me.
