FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Yamaha announces â€œGet Your Coolâ€ Video Contest winner:
Eric Brunt wins 2010 BWs 50 scooter!
August 18, 2010, Toronto, ON â€“ Victoria, BCâ€™s Eric Brunt knows the quickest way to a teenage girlâ€™s heart, and now he has it: a 2010 Yamaha BWs 50 scooter! Bruntâ€™s cool new ride is the reward for winning Yamaha Motor Canadaâ€™s â€œGet Your Coolâ€ video contest, hosted on their Facebook Fan page. Ten videos were uploaded during the contest period, all featuring Canadians, all of whom were desperately seeking some â€œcool.â€
It wasnâ€™t easy choosing a winner, considering the many unique and creative videos uploaded. There were rap songs, slideshows, dadâ€™s trying helplessly to be cool, and cucumber-faced teenagers! After reviewing each video for effort, creativity and humour, Yamahaâ€™s judges settled on Eric Bruntâ€™s â€œQuickest way to a teenage girlâ€™s heartâ€ video.
â€œIt was very well done, and exactly what weâ€™re looking for,â€ says Yamahaâ€™s National Manager, Marketing, Tim Kennedy. â€œEric and his friends put a lot of effort and enthusiasm into the production of his video. Hopefully a brand new BWs 50 will help him finally secure the date heâ€™s been looking for [laughs]!â€
However, Brunt isnâ€™t the only one to walk away with a prize. Because Yamahaâ€™s judges enjoyed so many laughs during the contest, theyâ€™ve created a few special, runner-up awards:
Taking home â€˜Best Rap Videoâ€™ is â€¦ Lynn and Jackie Courtoreille; â€˜Best Rendition of a Kenny Logginsâ€™ #1 hitâ€™â€™ is â€¦ Kate Goguen; and in honour of being the first to upload, the â€˜Early Bird Specialâ€™ award goes to â€¦ Sherry Nickerson! Each of these contestants will be awarded $50 Yamabuck gift certificates.
