DVD Contest Invites Online Video Entries24 Aug, 2006 By: Brendan Howard
Lionsgate isn't relying on the franchise's name to sell itself for the direct-to-video National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2: College @ Sea.
The Sept. 5 release (in unrated or ‘R'-rated versions at $26.98 each) is also getting a unique Internet push. Following on the recent success of such user-driven Internet video sites as YouTube.com, the new KnuckleHeadVideo.com invites people to upload videos and let other users vote the winner in a contest ending Sept. 30 for a free vacation for two to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The site is inviting videos of people “doing things that are goofy, silly, mischievous, and occasionally miraculous,” but definitely invites off-color stuff, allowing only those 18 or older to participate or view the site.
