This is complete and total bullshit!!!! Three common people, not out of Hollywood, just regular people with artistic passions worked their asses off all month to produce a high quality music video promoting volcano cigarettes. We wrote and recorded original music between pizza kitchen shifts. We brainstormed scripts over telephone calls between classes. I'm not a paid actress, I'm a full time student who works three jobs to support herself. Our cameraman is a pizza shop owner with a love for film making and our lead actor and script writer is a local police officer and school teacher! I watched the majority of the other videos, but to be honest most of them were too terrible to watch in full. Who else can say they put a similar amount of time and creative effort into their video?? Granted the stop motion is time consuming but your music is not original, just some lame cover of an overplayed pop song. We ran around town getting escorted out of hotels, bars and docks to create something we believed in. This video has been seen by my friends overseas. I played it for my colleagues, peers and coworkers. I know of at least three people who purchased this stupid device which I am now Ashamed to ever have promoted. And promote I did, tirelessly because I knew we had done the best job possible for the competition. And with all this work, we didn't win. After winning the popular vote, after bringing dozens of new members to the site, after doing exactly what you wanted from us we didn't win. The reason? Some bullshit excuse from a bunch of butthurt forum junkies who can't comprehend how normal people were able to create something so completely out of their league. to the people who decided this vote, you should be ashamed of yourselves for the votes you cast were not honest. The excuse that people only logged on to watch our video and no others: my friends and I watched the films together on one computer. Later they went to vote on their own. I also had people who watched the videos and had trouble figuring out how to vote so I helped later. It's the most illegitimate reason to keep someone from winning ever! Personally if someone was bringing that much new business to my website, I wouldn't much care if they didn't waste their time watching geeks with guitars who can't sing on key. Let me reiterate again that this competition is COMPLETE BULLSHIT! We each invested so much into this, Icannot believe that a company would be so flippant towards people who genuinely did a lot to promote their product. Where you should have been gratefuland supportive, you chose to elevate the egos of pussys. You have hurt a father, a local businessman and a student. I regret all the time I devoted to this and every person I brought to your site. You disgust me Volcano.

That is your opinion, and you are well enough to have it, but the scores were clearly posted. voted for on not a popularity vote at all, but scored in many areas and scored fairly and honestly.

Now to come here and insult or attack people is not allowed... read the forum rules.

This is a contest, there are winners and losers, this was voted on by the company, many of them do not come to the forum or the chat rooms because they are too busy doing their jobs. They know who the forum regulars are as much as they know who you are. This was voted on and scored points are posted.

I am sorry you feel they way you do, but these are the scores. Everyone worked hard on there songs and videos.

I for one want all the complaining to stop. And stop attacking others videos just because they did better than yours. If you think someone was off key thats your opinion, but there is no need for you to come here and attack them. Not that you need to know but most of the people I voted for for the top 3... didnt even win or get an HM.... am I here complaining? no I am here congratulating those that did win and trying to point out everyone did good in their own right.

This is a contest, but it is supposed to be fun, somewhere along the way it seems some people are lost the idea that this was meant to be fun and only saw money, If I had my way everyone would have won. Everyone did good.

Being in Hollywood or being "common people" has nothing to do with the contest, the trouble you went through had nothing to do with the contest. The popular vote is great, but that was based on you bringing all your friends and colleagues in and voting on your video. Do you really think your friends would vote for another video? The purpose of this contest is for fun and giving prizes out on the most entertaining video....not the video that has "gone through the most trouble" or "can get the most people to the forum". The rules were explained perfectly...you were in the top 5 for popular votes, but unfortunately 40 unbiased employees thought other videos were overall more entertaining. This is not the way to handle losing. I congratulate you and thank you for all your hard work. You did get some votes.
Everyone did well! I love going back and watching LILKCELEB's videos, as it makes me smile. I love a lot of videos that didn't get any votes. These are peoples opinions, and we make it as fair as possible. There are many entrant's that put a lot of time and effort into this that have never made a video before or never sang before. Everyone has serious guts, as i could never do it myself. I hope that everyone supports these contest. Because the complaining is getting very old. Everyone is a winner, but we can't PAY everyone....

WELL SAID AB & JOE !!! I was only a voter in this contest and I enjoyed logging in every couple days to look for new entries. I hope the few complaints don't discourage Volcano from running these kind of contest. There will always be a couple sore losers, boohoo. It was alot of fun to see fellow vapers give it their all, they have much more talent and courage than I do, and bravo to all of you who entered.
