Happy Holidroid Contest: Video Challenge


If you’re unsure what this whole “Holidroid Contest” thing is all about, be prepared to get excited. From November 24th through December 25th, Phandroid is giving away a Kindle Fire every single day along with other great prizes like the Galaxy Nexus Galaxy Tabs, JAMBOX, SmarTouch Gloves, Android Phones, Android T-Shirts, Seidio Vouchers and more. Read our announcement post for details.

Yesterday’s Winner

Yesterday we held a caption contest. The subject photo? Busta Rhymes and the Bug Droid at the Google Music launch event. Take a look below:

There were so many submissions and we really had to dig deep for the one we liked the most, but Michael S. ended up being the winner with the following:

When Busta was asked how he felt about being a part of Google music, he chuckled and said “well I still haven’t figured out whether I should feel embarrassed that you geeks asked me to come down here or honored.”

We have nothing against geeks of course (we’re all a bunch of geeks here at Phandroid as well) but we thought it was a pretty accurate way to wrap up his career. Congratulations to Michael who will receive a Kindle Fire, Galaxy Nexus, a Jambox, a Seidio voucher, Isotoner Smartouch gloves and an Andy T-Shirt! Let’s look ahead for today’s contest and prizes:

Amazon Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire could be this holiday’s hottest product: at only $199 it’s not only one of the most  affordable Android tablets, it’s also one of the best. That’s a killer combination. With a beautiful UI, great battery life, carefully curated apps/games, and an amazing array of media options thanks to Amazon’s Digital Content Ecosystem… the Kindle Fire is a sure win. Good luck winning one in our contest, but at only $199 it’s probably worth buying one just in case!

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Who wouldn’t want the Samsung Galaxy Nexus? It’s the world’s first smartphone to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and features the specs to match, including a 4.65-inch 720p HD display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and plenty of on-board storage. HUGE props to Nikolay Ananiev, the developer of an app called Tiny Flashlight + LED, who donated the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for giveaway. His app has OVER 10 MILLION downloads and Nikolay contacted us asking for ways he could give back to the community as a way to say “thanks”.

Jawbone JAMBOX

Ever wanted a small, portable speaker that plays music LOUD and CLEAR and isn’t a pain to setup? Let me introduce you to the Jawbone JAMBOX speaker. This bad boy packs a powerful bunch an extremely small frame, easily connects to your Android device via Bluetooth, and is an absolute pleasure to use. Bluetooth means you can stream not only music, but also games, apps, phone conversations, movies, and any other audio playing on your device! It also means no cords! Put it on your desk. Carry it to the kitchen. Bring it to the basketball court. Take it to your friend’s party. The Jawbone JAMBOX is a music lover’s dream device.

ZeeMote Bluetooth Game Controller

The Zeemote Bluetooth Game Controller compacts things into one comfortable, ergonomically sound gaming package. You use one hand and the controller has an analog stick with four action buttons on it. It’s a bit reminiscent of a Nintendo Wiimote – makes you wonder where the name was inspired from. There are many games in the Android Market already compatible with the Zeemote, including the popular title R-Type, and you may even be able to use it with some of your emulators. It goes perfectly with many Android devices, from 3.2 inch phones to 10.1 inch tablets. And if you want the ultimate gaming experience, Zeemote + Phone/Tablet + TV + HDMI-out = awesome.

Isotoner SmarTouch Gloves

Every single holiday season these SmarTouch smartphone gloves are consistently one of my favorite gift giving items. They eloquently solve one of the most fundamental problems a tech lover faces: using your device in cold weather. Wearing gloves usually prevents your touchscreen from working: take your phone out, take your glove off, use your phone, hand gets gold, shove phone in pocket, rush to get glove on. NO MORE! Isotoner’s SmarTouch gloves, designed in my colors and sizes for both men and women, has technology that passes the electrons your body gives off, through the gloves, onto the capacitive screen and allowing it to work. VOILA! Seriously. It works. Trust me. Try it… and you’ll love them forever.

Andy Robot T-Shirt

True Android enthusiasts and tech lovers enjoy expressing their Android attitude and there is no better way to do so then with an Android Robot T-Shirt from the brilliant folks at iSteamAndy. They’ve created a series of artistic, creative Android Robot themed T-shirts with fun, rich imagery. They sell like hotcakes and have limited production runs so get each design while you still can. Some of their top designs (and ones we’re giving away) include: Dark Night AndyiSteam AndyFlying Andy,Exploded AndyAndy Verus, and Unstoppable Andy. Check out

Seidio $30 Voucher

With so much smartphone use comes battery drain. Thankfully, Seidio makes some awesome extended batteries that fit many smartphones, allowing you to get longer battery life with the same device. No more toting around a charger everywhere you go: just snag a Seidio and call it a day! Seidio also makes cases, holsters, and other great accessories for your smartphones.Check them all out here.

  1. Holy cow I am now convinced you guys have no sense of humor. I read so many funny captions and the winner was not one of them. There is no doubt you guys know phones, you know Android, you know technology, but humor is not something you know or recognize.

    1. With over 900 entries and only three of us to judge them, there’s always going to be a lot of differences in opinions.

      1. But you really felt with over 900 entries this was the funniest one? Or the most clever? I probably read at least 75% of the entries and the one that won would not have even been in consideration.  I thank you guys for your contests. It is really a cool thing and I thank you for the website. I enjoy it everyday. But I have to say you guys are 2 for 2 in choosing the wrong captions. 

        1. Completely agree. Even if I didn’t win, I feel that the one they chose was not funny/witty/smart in any sort of way.

          1. That’s all based on opinion. I’m sorry.

          2. Not trying to be an  a%$ or rain on the winners parade. Congrats to the winner, but I feel like you guys will have a lot more people say something about it.

            Maybe contests should be given a more specific set of rules so that a “conflict” doesn’t exist between what people expect their submissions to be chosen for and how they really are chosen .

            That being said, thank you again for your contests and your great site. I know even though I probably wont win anything, I’ll be a follower because you guys are great/fast with android news.

        2. Totally agree….this also applies to yesterdays winner as well; balancing your smartphone on a coin isn’t really creative…tough,yes..creative..not really.
          But, seriously…congratulations to all winners…and thanks to phandroid for this fun contest. ..who knows, based on this I might have a shot at winning :-P

          1. it isn’t that tough. took me a few minutes to balance my nexus one on a dime…

        3. Just a thought… You’re probably not helping your case for being CHOSE as a winner in the future. =D

          1. I know that but I would rather be honest and speak my mind then hope I may get chosen to win. Plus I am not dull enough to come up with a caption that could possibly win anyhow. 

      2. Why not let the readers vote? The one with the most “likes” wins? 

        1. That method can’t be trusted.

          1. Maybe ask someone outside of Phandroid to judge a contest where humor comes into play. Or pick the top 5 and let the readers choose from the top 5. Is it a perfect system? No but I am 100% sure the results can only get better. Anyone but the panel that has picked the last two caption winners.

          2. Quentyn, I agree. But not for the reason others might think (getting friends to vote, multiple accounts, etc). The problem is simple logistics with the page. With the volume of postings, earlier postings get pushed off the front page, which defaults to display “Sort by best rating”, therefore the earliest postings rarely get read and have little or no opportunity to get “liked.”

      3.  Thank you for the contest and I totally back you guys on the droid-x balancing on a penny. That did take a lot of skill. I’m not trying to be rude but in both caption contests the winner was supposed to be the one that was considered the funniest most whitty caption. On both occasions they just weren’t funny and I think the majority of your readers would agree. There were so many better captions. Perhaps you guys are over worked and should ask some people outside of phandorid that can be completely impartial to be judges. Happy Holidays!

      4. Seriously? That caption won…….first we get that “random selection from the top entries” means “we choose whatever we like, screw randomization from the best few”
        And now…the best comment is actually the worst one I have read…..I didn’t read a lot, probably around 20, but still….there were at least 20 captions better than that crap……

        Well grats to the winner, but I don’t think it was deserved…..I won’t even bother entering todays contest doing my best…..seriously…..WTH???   No offence Phandroid, but you can’t even make decent contests (although the prizes are awesome)….. I won’t even record a video for todays contest…you don’t deserve that kind of marketing and also…. whatever will win, will probably be crap too

        So here is my crap entry:

        Little Mary had a lamb, a baby lamb as white as snow,
        And everywhere Mary went, the lamb would go,
        The lamb was young and didn’t know a lot,
        Yet even that lamb knew these contests suck!
        I must mention phandroid as it is in the rules,…
        Well look at that, I just did that, no april fools!
        I hope the other contests will be better,
        Or else the quality of entries does not matter
        Heck, even if this next sentence does not rhyme,
        it won’t hurt my chances of winning
        No I must conclude this poem, no wait it is a song
        With this crap, winning won’t take long!

        p.s. With this crap entry I would still probably win by popular vote if the people who voted were the ones who actually took the time to think of something clever/witty/funny for yesterdays contest

          1. Now this is a great caption!

          2. I have to agree, even Chris” comment is better than the winning one

          3. Of course not, that would imply an actual sense of rationality during the selection process for the winning entry o_O

    2. First of all, congrats to the winner. I didn’t enter the contest so no one can say I was a sore loser. I’m gonna have to agree with JEFF on this one; that wasn’t very funny.

      Oh well though, I’m sure someone is very happy this Christmas, and I’ll be happy for him for that.


    3. Just keep trying. There’s lots of prizes left. Let’s see if I can redeem my pirate video with some.. pirate rap? Haha. We will see.

      But today’s focus is most certainly on buying the Galaxy Nexus at 10:00 A.M.

      1. Hey Ben where are you that you are buying the Glaxy Nexus today at 10:00? 

        1. Verizon. From all the info I have gathered this morning, if they have them, they’re selling them. I doubt 3rd parties will be selling them today. I’ll respond after 10 with confirmation.

          1. “I’m ready to sell it to you… buuuuuut…. Verizon won’t let me” – Kiosk Rep

            Why would Verizon ship all the phones and then tell them they can’t be sold?
            Someone needs to get to the bottom of this fail.

            I’m disgusted. They have like 30 sitting there in a box on the floor.

    4. Gotta agree with you Jeff. They picked a very boring caption as the winner. I guess based on their level of humor, a video that is more of a long drawn-out monotone monologue about android would probably win :)

    5. I think it’s funny and feels like something Busta would say.

    6. Lol. Be greatful is giving away these ridiculous prizes everyday. You have to believe JEFF and when you believe, you can do anything, even win! Lol.

  2. Congrats to the winner for yesterday.  

    Alas some of us have no video editing / recording talent or music capabilities.  I shall be sitting this one out me thinks.

    1. I came, I Saw, I Ate Fish… Veni, Vidi, Pescatore?

  3. I don’t find humor in the picked winner… Oh well, at least you know phones.

  4. Congrats to the winner, although I don’t think it is very funny, if at all. I saw comments much funnier, but hey, wasn’t my decision.

  5. I m not gonna get upset but I’m gonna sit this one out I’ve played every day and ur telling me not one of my post where good enuff

    1. Really?  Do you really feel that entitled to win a contest where a thousand people enter?  Grow the hell up.

      1. Not at all no one is entitled just which I won I’m happy for the winners but lets be honest this wasn’t the funniest and I feel a little bummed about it happy holidays may the best droid win

    2. I can’t believe “ur gonna sit out” and “post where not good enuff”.

      How did you not win?!?!

      1. I would sound like a screeching cat and break everyone speakers you should thank me lmao

  6. That’s why I don’t play these type of games/contest. Because the winner be writing some lame ass shit that be winning. I feel they(phandroid) don’t be reading everybody post. Y’all still my favorite site. But when it comes to these contests y’all can kiss my ass or send me a fucking gift. Being your number one fan is good enough! Lol

  7. no funny at all mine was funny was really wanting a tablets no big deal!

  8. To be fair, any chance we can get a list of each of the judges’ genre preferences? ;)

    1. We all pretty much like everything. I think Kevin leans more toward alternative, I lean more toward old school R&B and Rob likes rap. Chris, I’m not sure about.

      1. Thank you, sir :) …here’s a clue about Chris I dug up w/ my own research, for everyone’s benefit:

        1. Haha! Good detective work! I listen to a lot of indie stuff — but I’m no hipster O_o

          Metal — but I’m no metal head.

          And Christian secular — but I’m no Bible thumper. 

  9. wait, compose a song, write, shoot, edit and upload a video… by when? good thing i don’t have a job to go to.. oh wait nevermind, 

  10. Breaking out the camcorder and my keyboard. Challenge accepted. 

  11. Less than 24 hours to write and record a 2-4 minute song?  You guys are nuts :)  There’s no way I can accomplish this (I couldn’t even manage to take a pic of my phone balanced on something on time), but I’m curious to see what people come up with.

    1. Lol. I really need a new phone so I worked on my song while at work and finished at home then spent a few hours on the video and even edited pictures. It took me about 7-10 hours to complete.

  12. that caption is weak and will always be weak.  I read plenty of post that was way funnier then that one.  Mine was funnier.  If you want to pick one at random just say leave a comment and we will pick at random.

  13. Congrates to yesterday winner! But on the real that was one of the worst caption I read maybe around 40% of them & I thought 7 of the ones & mine where better than that toxic waste garbage but it was you guys who choose the winner its all goodies its your contest your choice so we all live with it like always thanks for what you’ll do for the Android community!

  14. Yea i also agree that the caption for this and the last one were not funny at all….i know its opinion, but they werent even worth a giggle….i have kinda given up hope of winning anything with this contest… at least the one on androidandme is mostly random, with more chances given to those that have been signed up for a while…but still, bettr odds..

  15. Can we get a poll up on which visitors actually think that caption was funny….does not even have to be the funniest…just fun in general….

    Better yet…Like this post if you think it was fun……if you didn;t think it was fun…dont do anything ;)

  16. well this one is right up my alley… i’m a music producer :)  Anyone sing on here?

  17. After 2 hours of song writing and mixing, I’m ready to make the video. Hopefully it’s decent!

  18. every time i read one of these posts,i see all the people complaining because they didnt win,or they dont like the winner that was chosen.

    can you all stop being so whinny? just because your’e not winning,doesnt mean the contest is rigged,or that someone is cheating,it just means you lost. you can only have one entry,the odds are you’re going to loose every contest you participate in,stop acting so surprised.and if you didnt like the winner,who cares? you’re not the one deciding! and you whining about how you thing the winner should be chosen isn’t going to change anything,they are going to choose the winner the way they see fit,you want to choose a winner in a different way,then start your own website,and your own contest,and do whatever you want with it.

    you need to be more appreciative that this site is being nice enough to hold a contest like this,instead of complaining because you’re not the winner. keep entering,maybe you will get lucky,but dont act like a 5 year old.posting comments about how they have no sense of humor, OR SOME ALL CAPS RANT ABOUT HOW YOU’RE NOT GOING TO ENTER ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU THINK ITS RIGGED!!

    sorry about the rant,i just felt like it needed to be said

    1. Sounds like someone is looking to kiss a little ass in the hopes of increasing there chances of winning. 

      With that being said if there was a a picture of you typing with great anger while staring at the Phandroid logo lovingly, what I said above would have easily won the caption contest. lol

      1. nah,im not even entering this one,im not big on video editing. i’m just tired of not even being able to see other entries without having to go back a few pages,because the first few you get to are all full of people complaining.

        and i know im complaining about people complaining,but i felt like i had to say it

  19. I wish my work schedule didn’t suck, so I could participate in these more, but the winning caption should have read: 

    “HEY GUYS MY NAME IS JAY-Z, NOT BUSTA RHYMES!  Showing up here was so not worth the free phone…” *grumble grumble*

    EDIT: Mine was meant to just be read as a funny post, in case that wasn’t clear without this edit. Congratulations to the winner! :D

  20. screw this lol. spend 8 hours trying to make something just to see some pathetic entries win.

  21. Wow, people are really bitter about not winning here.  Maybe Quentyn should’ve said it was randomly picked from the judges’ top picks instead of it was their favorite.  So if one judge thought it was funny, then he totally had a chance at winning.

    Not only that, but the winner actually bothered to directly answer the question that was ask, which many of us didn’t.  “Busta Rhymes was on hand for the launch of Google Music and took the time to pose for a few photos. How did he feel about his new gig?”

    Yeah, it sucks we didn’t win.  And of course we think we’re better than the next guy.  But just say “That sucks, I didn’t win” instead of complaining about the person that did win.

    1.  I don’t think it is so much that people are bitter and everyone appreciates the chance to win the prize packs. I would have loved to have one but didn’t and I’m ok with that. I think everyone is disappointed because the winners of both caption contests captions were not funny or whitty! I think everyone just feels that out of 900 entries there were much better captions in both contests and that is why they suggest new judges.

    2. ty jason yeah i saw the question that was asked and saw like only 2ppl that answered it so i figured if i did bettered my chances but i know ppl are bashing my caption like crazy idk y. i mean i didnt bash any other winners or complain all the other days

      1. Dude I am happy you won and so what if everyone is bashing you. Including me. Sorry man that was not funny or clever. It’s not fun or funny. (Clever and funny people will get that references) There were so many better entries. But you know what? You are getting an incredible prize and I am not. So, that is all you should care about.

  22. No time to commit to this one unfortunately. Leaving for work shortly and wont be home till close to the contests end. To bad. THIS I could do.

    Ill be forfeiting tomorrows aswell since a Verizon phone is included. I’d rather someone win that would have use for the device. Well, good luck to everyone tonight and tomorrow. :)

    Oh, and grats Michael S.

    [edit] the video responce by AnnMMaine was great. Don’t hold it against them that they were a little short of 2 min. =P

    1. Thanks you and its Michael r. Lol ur the only one I seen to gratz me everyone else is bashing me

      1. Ahh Sorry. They put Michael S when they announced the winner. =P
        Yeah, i’ve noticed alot of people complaining lately. If you dont win, you dont win. Suck it up.=P Congrats again Michael R.

    2. Thanks! We had a lot of fun doing it and are just so pleased with everybody’s comments! Fun to do, even if we were too short. :)

  23. I personally found this last winner to be very unfunny/witty/creative, at least not in 2011 in the United States.  I could see it being dry humor funny back in the late 90s in the UK, but definitely not here.

    I can see why the first caption from the first contest won, though.  It was crude humor, but I can appreciate that some folks are into that.

    Maybe these one day contest result turnarounds are too demanding on you phandroid staff?  I know people bitch and moan, but if you took an extra day or two or three to really go over the submissions I don’t think anyone would complain.  I mean hell, it’s nearing the holidays and things are just getting hectic.  We would understand.

    Anyways, thanks for putting up with our crap =p

    1. Thanks for the advice but if it’s one thing I’ve learned in all this is that people will ALWAYS complain. I mean seriously, we’re giving out LOADS of free stuff every. single. day. and just look at the comments. Seems people were happier before the contest =/

      1. Hey Chris. I thank Phandroid for these contests. Like I said in an earlier post. It is a very cool thing to do. I also love your website. I enjoy it on a daily basis. It is by far the best Android site on the net. But can you honestly say this caption was the funniest or the most clever or entertaining in any way? I read most of the 900 + and there were so many captions so much funnier. Your giveaways are fantastic but your comedy skills are not. I am surprised though. I checked out your Google+ page. You seem like a pretty hip guy. I really find it hard to believe you found this caption the funniest out of all the contestants who entered. None the less I thank you for all your hard work and I will always be a daily reader of your website. 

      2. 0o0, Just thought of something else.  If you guys are planning on doing one of those hidden phrase things, would it be possible to include pictures in the posts, instead of words (so that they’re not searchable by scripts/bots?)  Maybe hidden picture puzzles.  

        Ex;  the pictures of an eye, a heart, and some sort of goat-looking animal, placed into a random post of the day.  Then we’d be responsible for finding the post that contains the pic and then to decipher the puzzle (ex above = I love you).  Bot free, right?

      3. Maybe negative feedback can be a way to weed out entries for future contests. Obviously they don’t appreciate the opportunities you are providing us.

  24. Out of curiosity, what version of the Galaxy Nexus are you giving away? I hope it’s the HSPA+ version.

    1. And I hope it’s the LTE version.

  25. I video replied my song on youtube, but here’s the link for those here in the comments page

    1. Yeah, that was good. I hope my will compete :D Working on it now. It is not as long though. Quentyn if mine is less then 2 minutes dont disqualify! Ok!

    2. I like this one. I’m glad it’s not another horrible rap. 

      1. Well I didn’t think mine was that bad :(

        1. Which one is yours? They weren’t all bad.

          1. This one: I’m obviously not a rapper at all but I did try my best.


          2. At least you tried! There are only nine entries so far

    3. Great job. From what I have seen you are a no doubt the winner. Now I know there will be other entries but as of now you are the winner. Hopefully the panel sees this as well.

  26. I think people were happier with just pure random contests. When skill has been involved in it, majority of the community feels that the entry that had the most skill wasn’t chosen.
    I agree with the winner of the app review though. Also the “first to post” link wiwth the secret message just turned into a who is the quickest bot.

    1. The skill contests make me feel like I have a chance. As of right now, there are only 9 videos. Only four of them are worth looking at. (I’m giving myself credit)

      1. Oh yeah? Which one is yours :p

          1. Bwahaha, footage from inside a Verizon store.  That’s awesome.  Ballsy.  People must have been looking at you weird.

  27. heyhey this is yesterdays winner. My last name is Register not S….

  28. is my son’s i give him full permission, thank you phandroid. If he wins I will put it other my name, and etc, thanks!

  29. This is a tough challenge on a work day. Lol. IDK if I’ll have enough time to compose an original winning song much less make a video for it. All I have is Windows Movie Maker on XP. Lol. I will try but it will seriously suck.

  30. Wowz….there is a serious amount of peeps on here all butthurt cause they havent won anything yet.  You guys should be thanking Phandroid for even having the contest.  I would agree that the winning Busta caption sucked, but its Phandroid’s contest so its up to them to decide what THEY think was the best comment. Congrats to all the winner thus far…..

  31. Posted a reply, but here’s the video itself.

  32. Posted my Epic Rap Battle Response.

  33. Alright Done!

    I hope you guys enjoy ;)

    1. Your voice sounds like the pico TTS replacements on the market =p  GJ though.

      Btw, I thought your video app review was totally going to win =x

      1. Lol Thanks.
        I thought i would have it in the bag too until i saw the winner’s video. I said to myself. Ahh damn he is a pro!
        I think i might have gotten in the finals though :D

  34. Okay, I think its time to stop raining on the winner’s parade. Seriously, all of you immature babies are complaining that they thought someone else was funnier than you. Too bad. How would you feel if one second you’re on top of the world and then next thing you know everyone is hating on you, for no reason other than the fact that you won and they didn’t? Well, then again, apparently you don’t have many feelings, if any.

    I haven’t seen even ONE positive comment here. Grow up people.

    I think that the staff here at phandroid is doing a great job with the contest so far. Ideas for each contest are very novel, although some cater to certain people more than others. But that’s how it should be.  Give everyone a fair chance.

    P.S. Congrats to the winner of yesterday’s contest and all prior. And good luck to whoever wins tonight, as I’m sure there will be hell to pay tomorrow.

    1. well said. To be honest if my fancy 12 Android days of Christmas does win I know lots will think theirs was better. But none the less, the winner walks away with a Nexus. And I’m hoping and praying Phandroid editors are in a great Christmas mood when they vote. Good luck to all.

      Just in case you were curious which was mine…

      1. for the record, I thought yours was nicely put together. best of luck.

        1. Awesome buddy! I appreciate that. I can’t locate yours. Can you post link in reply?

          1. unfortunately I was unable to participate in this contest since I don’t have any of my recording equipment or instruments with me. and besides, I can’t sing for my life  ;)

  35. I just finished submitting my entry:

    There’s the link for all of you guys to enjoy. Hope you all like it!

    1. Do you have access to professional equipment?

      1. No man. Just my laptop, a Rode NT-1, M-Audio Fast Track Pro audio interface and software ;)

        Did you like the song?

    2. The production on this is really good, but it looks like you had a “D’oh!” moment with the running time.

      1. It is spot on at 4mins. The last 7 seconds are just an echo so the song actually does end at 4mins and thus I *HOPE* it is still eligible. I so badly want to win one of these prize packs. I am still in college so money is hard to come by and my HTC Desire is almost about dead :( 

        Glad you liked it though (I am assuming you did… hahahah!)

  36. Here’s my entry! Wrote and recorded in 3.5 hours then spent the evening on the video. Good times all around!!!!

  37. I have no talent and less skill at video making. But I enjoy the contest and hope for the pity vote. It took me more time to figure out how to “video respond” on youtube than for the entire production of my video. We who are technologically challenged are at a real disadvantage. 

  38. i think all the videos are awesome. This is going to be hard for phandroid staff to decide! lol. The competition is going to be stiff.

  39. Just uploaded mine! The best way to spread Android Cheer is… :)

  40. Wow…I just spent way too much time on a contest I’m not even going to win.

  41. Wow, last minute but I got it uploaded before the deadline. Hope you guys enjoy, I have the worst video editing capabilities ever….hope the music makes up for it!

  42. Here is my entry. I hope I win!

  43. @cuneo13

    Sorry for the delay… there was either an Internet problem in my area, or it was something else. Happy Holidroid and Happy Holidays everyone!

  44. I’m really surprised at how many people put together quality entries only to have them get DQ’d due to the video’s running time. It’s a shame, cause there were some really good ones in here! I won’t complain, though, since it helps my chances. :)

  45. hey, nobody watches my vid… maybe cuz i suck that much. haha..

  46. Here’s my entry to the Phandroid contest:
    I uploaded it yesterday.

    Play as the Android and Phandroid character on the phandroid website and collect the winning items from the contest.
    Game and music are designed for this video.

    Also congratulations to the winner of yesterday! ;)

  47. Ugh! Never, ever, every try to make a music video when you have a cold/sore throat :( Nevertheless, if choose my video and I win… well, it was all worth the 2.25 minutes of embarrassment.

  48. Good luck to everybody! This was an exceptionally challenging, yet fun contest.

    Here’s my entry in HD:

    And 480p Standard Definition:

  49. How does phandroid get a hold of the winner? YouTube inbox?

  50. I just watched all the entries…so jealous of talented people lol.

    I tried putting something together 100% on my phone.  Got some beats made, wrote a rap, but was thwarted by the fact that it can’t play music and record video at the same time :(
