An epic contest, great entries, and a movement on Youtube and the internets.
Congratulations to all who entered, you know you're a winner no matter what. I hope those with prizes will celebrate this with another epic video, or perhaps a collab???

Props to deach for being the inspiration to a great contest! You rock. And I bet you'd roll as well :shaka:

Latest news:

apparently Warner Music called Hanson if they could censor their cover vids as well. The spiderbots have finally been dialled in, and are looking for new prey :cheers:

Whoop whoop! Thanks Deach! You picked almost the same winners I would have chosen, too! Congrats, other winners. This contest sounded fun, but turned out 10 times better than I expected .

Congrats to all winners! Great work all of you. Thanks Deach for a great contest (and thank God it's over - if I had to listen to that song one more time, I might have given up music all together...).

Congratulations to the winners. All excellent choices. I am especially glad 4DJB25 gets a new uke in his hands. While that little yellow uke is certainly endearing, I look forward to hearing you play something with a little more resonance.

Thanks Deach for your Deachyness.

I would like to thank Deach for thinking up such a brilliant idea for a contest and especially for his support for ukulele players. To offer such amazing prizes was wonderfully generous.

I was staggered by the quality of the entries and by the way that everyone gave of their best. I feel that it was a privilege to have taken part and I am so honoured to have won one of the prizes.

Thank you Deach, thank you to the secret panel of judges and thanks to everyone who supported the contest by viewing, rating and commenting on the entries.

Woo-hoo!!!! :smileybounce:

Well I gotta say, Deach is ten kinds of awesome for having this contest in the first place, and an extra dose of awesome for not only adding a second Grand Prize, but for tossing in some unexpected (and mighty fine) awards for me and the other runners-up. I'm honored to be in such good company.
:cheers:

Whoa! I just got back from an awesome weekend and found out, thus making said weekend beastly levels of awesome. I'm honestly, genuinely, and pleasantly surprised.

Thank you to Deach (who was ever so patient and kind in encouraging those who take up the uke for the first time), the Underground (I wouldn't have figured the damn thing out without you all), Ken Middleton whose alternate takes on "Mmmbop" were thrilling if not any less impressive, and anyone else who watched the video.

The question remains: What to do with the Yellow Uke?

I got a new uke to pick out... damn!

Thank you!
