eHarmony “Viral Video” contest winner

Man, I must be slipping.  EHarmony’s Viral Video contest is just the sort of contest I like to enter.  They wanted wacky short films about eHamorny rather than traditional ads. But somehow, I totally missed this one.  Judges picked four finalists and then the public chose the ultimate winner.  The video that won the popular vote is amusing and pretty well done.

Eharmony’s First Place Winner. Prize: $8,000:

The winning filmmaker, Steven Huffaker actually shot two entries for this contest and his non-winning submission is so weird I had to post it too.  As a short film, I think it’s pretty good but as a video contest entry, it’s totally insane.  There is no panel of contest judges with balls big enough to put their company’s stamp of approval on a video that points out that Jesus’ death on the cross maybe wasn’t such a big sacrifice since he knew he was the son of God and that he’d be resurrected.  Yes…for serious.

UPDATE: Hey now, the director of these two videos left a comment last night and said that the he shot the Jesus ad just for fun. It wasn’t actually a submission. That actually makes me like that video even more than I already did since it was just a crazy short film and not a contest entry.

    Ha. Steven, I’ll update the post. I think the jesus video was actually more entertaining than the one that won. I should have know in was a “just for fun” type of thing. Congrats on the win and thanks for the info.
