The Contest is over and winners have been chosen... oh yeah, I said winners plural... check out page 10 of this thread for the announcement.

So UU member MIM (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/member.php?19278-Mim) was just approved to sell Ukes in her Ice Cream store. EleUkes will be a big part of this and we're excited (send me ice cream somehow...:drool:) So we're going to do a super quick contest. Click here to check out her thread about her store and all that. (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?27034-IT-s-OFFICIAL!!!-My-life-just-got-even-more-awesome!!!&highlight=eleuke) Its rad.

Anywho, on to the contest. Write and perform a song about Ukuleles and Ice Cream (or perform a song whilst eating ice cream). This is a super fast contest, so we're not looking for massively polished songs or videos here. Have fun.

Prize: a free EleUke
Rules: um, have fun... must be a song including something about Ice Cream and Ukuleles... Post a link to the video in this thread... YouTube title must include the words "EleUke Contest"... have it in on time...
Due Date: This contest will end March 5 (I said it was a quick one)

I think that's it.

Videos so far:
Phatzo (http://www.youtube.com/user/phatuke#p/a/u/0/pjtf9cNJlCM) (rad lyrics, "I take you to the office or the bathroom to pee...")
Ron (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szPCnyKLEH0) (Rad. Very rad. There's no way that's the first song you've written. I think this is a song about how "ice cream" doesn't rhyme with "ukulele")
TheUkulazy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1tjAQkXq5Y) (great point, it is hard to strum and eat ice cream... Though I'm still waiting for someone to try it on camera)
bensontaylor (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE0yoqj-J-c) (I have a question: Do you grow a beard before you go get ice cream or do you wear a fake one? Watch the video for why I'm asking)
raecarter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s08HZprjcJ0) (Fantastic! My favorite line, ""Neapolitan ice cream. Is three times better... than normal ice cream...")
SparkyUkulele (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWEHQhSwgps) (One of the best vocal melodies so far!)
biscuit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94bGNlNwf0w) (Put your Mango body next to mine, Cause, honey, I wont ever get enough. LOVE IT.)
kilaana (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpilkBR0gxc) (Best jingle like submission so far, "Gotta have my Ukes and Scoops" Great Job!)
Pyrateknight (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlAhuD5-Gmk) (Great submission. Man this is going to be hard to decide a winner.)
gotrice415510 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PoB5nPyDvk) (Perfect music for Ukes and Ice Cream. Rad little love story.)
glass (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfhmv4PBTPg) (Same song as earlier but with the uke tuned and the beard trimmed)
kalmario (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElMZhCW0Jjk) ("It had 4 strings, I am not to blame, That electric Ukulele was calling my name)
SparkyUkulele (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLwp3o4DOJI) (Another great entry by Sparky)
boscotiny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VL3qNhbt1I) (Crazy Great Lyrics..."The way that its going, my uke wont last a month
And the wood is so creamy kittens cry")
CoLmes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46EA8FSZuOQ) (He's not naked, he's got a hat)
acousticballyhoo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6YkR-bUrus) (The accent, the translation, the words, the message, there's a lot in this video that works)
bonesigh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EoWr37WvzI) (The cat plays the uke at the end! Amazing. Just a few more hours and still no one eating ice cream while playing.)
UKISOCIETY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ePjLBXJxBs) (Great little diddy some of it made up on the spot. Awesome.)
glass (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnm-nBXyC8E) (2nd entry by glass. Eating ice cream right in the middle of the song. Great Job Glass.)
portlandjosh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-atdAuxZkvU) (3 Ukes, a pair of spoons, and a whistle. Pure family entertainment.)
Papa Dave (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umZV052tlvg) (Thanks Papa Dave. Really Fun.)
molomaru (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JnSIfeL-6E) (A Little Late but worthy of the final post. Epic tale with Dragons, Ukulele-axes and IceCream)

I think that would be impressive. One dude playing multiple EleUkes and eating ice cream... we're pretty loose on our rules around here, so have at it.

Sounds like fun ^^ I think ill give it a shot
Rad, I can't wait.

Don't worry bro, we're going to do some pretty cool contests this year (once we have inventory)... but by all means, save your pennies too, you can never have too many Ukes.

Mim
02-24-2010, 09:23 AM
ahhh... shucks I was hope'n for the new Koa edition, guess I'll have to start saving my pennies :(

Still... although not a Koa... this is a great prize! They run on ebay from $170+... and to be able to choose your size is awesome!
Just encouraging you guys! I love seeing the entries!

Eleukeusa this is a challenging contest with a very generous prize. Thank you for that. Now if someone could just have a contest that I could win where the prize is talent before this one's entry is closed that would be great.

Mim this business enterprise of yours sounds so exciting. I've alway admired any type of entrepreneurial activity. I love hearing the concept of Ice Cream shop selling Ukuleles. That is just the "cat's meow" as far as I'm concerned. Selling two wonderful things .... do you need a special license for that?

Phatzo how did you do that so fast? It's good, it's funny, it's almost demoralizing.

Have a Great Day,
Jim

02-24-2010, 08:45 PM
Okaaaay.
First video I've ever uploaded. First song I've ever written. So it's a bit ropey but I think MIM's shop is the best idea ever and EleUke are being unbelievably generous.
Here you go:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szPCnyKLEH0

02-25-2010, 05:58 AM

I don't believe you... that was too good to be a first:p

I think MIM's shop is the best idea ever
Me too, that's why we did this contest. I just thought a Uke Ice Cream store was way cool.

EleUke are being unbelievably generous.

Eleukeusa this is a challenging contest with a very generous prize. Thank you for that.
Well thanks guys. That's why they call me Generous Bob... actually no one calls me that. My name isn't Bob... if someone did call me that, I'd probably look at them funny.

shucks I was hope'n for the new Koa edition

no chance of a rosewood one? ...doesnt hurt to ask
Never fear UUer's of the world, more EleUke contests are coming. I would've let you choose the prize, but we've really struggled to get any here in the states (there is a big boat full of big boxes full of lots of EleUkes on its way) so I figured it would be lame to have this conversation:

me, "SoAndSo, Your song was rad. You win. Pick your prize."
SoAndSo, "I'll take that one."
me, "Oh, um, that one is out of stock..."
SoAndSo, "Oh. Well then, I'll take that other one."
me, "Yeah... about that... it'll be here in a month-ish"
SoAndSo, "Did I really win? Is this Steve? Man, that was a good one Steve, I really thought this was EleUkeUSA. You really got me..."
me, "I've gotta go to somewhere not here..."


Now if someone could just have a contest that I could win where the prize is talent before this one's entry is closed that would be great.

Wow I sure wish that I had a camera ...I would enter. I probably need to know how to play too.
You guys should enter anyway... I never said that the song had to be good. I said to have fun. So far the songs have been good, but that's not a contest requirement. Like if you played the best Frozen Uke Song in the world, but you looked like you weren't enjoying yourself... you wouldn't win... and you'd be sad. So, buck up little camper and post one. bensontayler, you should borrow a camera from someone or something...
So anyway, I thought we'd offer the models we have all the sizes in so that the winner could at least choose their size... That was a long rambling post, I really shouldn't get on here before 10am...

In case people are checking, I'm posting a list of entries on the first post.

Those EleUkes are too cool can't believe i haven't heard of them
Well, now you have. Great video TheUkulazy. Thanks for entering. bensontaylor and raecarter jump into the mix as well. Benson gets 30 points for location (seems to be next to a large heating duct at work). Rae gets 152 points for actually eating ice cream while playing and singing. Though I'm still waiting to see someone do it unassisted. Unfortunately the points don't matter for anything and have no relevance to this contest, but you can tell your lady-folk about them!

02-25-2010, 12:54 PM
...and sparkyukulele jumps in with a song about making out whilst eating ice cream. She may be in a school or a very nice jail cell... probably a school, its hard to tell the two apart. Video here and in the original post.

Also, I'm taking off for a trade show in Vegas tomorrow. The contest is still on and everything, but I'll be sans-computer for a few days. In the meantime, I've given my log in shtuff to a coworker. I can't promise that he'll be as witty or attractive as I am, but he'll keep the entry lists going on the first post. Anywho, talk to you guys in a week-ish. Keep the entries coming... these are so good there may be multiple winners... of something...

Somebody just asked what time the contest ends. I think it will end midnight Friday night. We will look at all the vids again over the weekend and announce the winner Monday or Tuesday if that's okay with everyone. Remember we're pretty laid back so if you get it in a little late we won't be too worried.

Just in case I can't get the video sorted out

Ice cream and Ukuleles:

It was hot outside, pushing 1 0 4
I was walking on down, to my ice cream store
I’ll have a double of cookies and cream
When over Mim’s shoulder I saw something mean
It had 4 strings, I am not to blame
That electric Ukulele was calling my name
I picked it up, I could not stop,
I should have ordered some, Goody Goody gum drop.

Ice cream and ukuleles,
Oh man I know it sounds crazy
This is my sort of shop
I like it, I like it a lot.

I picked it up, I played some Chords,
I must admit, might have been ‘I’m Yours’
‘well you done,done me and i bet that i felt this,
I tried to beat you but my ice cream melted,
Man i love that ukulele,
Daddy needs a new baby’

Chorus again x2


About an hour later, I was going home
My ice cream has melted, my money all blown,
What will my wife say, I can only guess
Another sucker with U.A.S.

Ice cream and ukuleles,
Oh man My wifes going to slay me
This is my sort of shop
I like it, I like it a lot.


Cheers Cliff

What are the rules on multiple entries, btw? I just wrote a song for the ukulele underground contest that accidentally complies with the rules of this contest as well (I hope this cumulative effect doesn't last..!)

If you're only allowed one entry, please take my first entry not the incidental second one.

Here's my entry for the contest.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VL3qNhbt1I
I have a lot of friends who love ice cream,
They always eat more than one cup
But I never serve it in a bowl
I grab my ukulele and fill it up

They stare and smile grab a spoon and start eating
“Fill it up again”, I hear them say.
But could you do us one favor?
Please move the strings out of the way.

I go through 5 gallons in a weekend
And that’s when only two friends come by
The way that it’s going, my uke won’t last a month
And the wood is so creamy kittens cry.

Jamoca Almond Fudge, they’ll eat until they can’t budge
Their favorite street is Rocky Road

I look at my strings and they’re sticky and rusty
Soaking in sweet cream all day long
But now that I play with Chocolate Swirl in the sound hole
I play a much sweeter song

Thank you ^_^

In a summer day, burning from the heat
I ‘ll calm down I have some ice cream.

In a trouble day, Misfortune had come
I ‘ll calm down, if I start strum


Hoo.. ukulele Hoo... ice cream
Everyone doubts why, just listen

In a summer day, burning from Sunny
I ‘ll calm down, when strumming ukulele
In a trouble day, missing dream
I ‘ll calm down, if I eat ice cream.


Hoo.. they're both the same
This is the relevance, ukulele and ice cream

PS. I known, my English is broken but I want to joy this contest for fun. lol ^_^
Ukulele without border HA-Ha

Here's my shot at it! Only the second song I've ever written. I had a lot of fun doing this.
Cool Uke Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EoWr37WvzI)

"Cool Uke Song"

One scoop, two scoop, three scoop, four,
If I could just have a little more.
One uke, two uke, three uke, four,
Just show me the way to the ice cream uke store.

I was feeling kind of droopy, I was feeling kind of poor.
When my daughter said Let's go to the ice cream store.
While we were there I just happened to see
Up on the wall a ukulele.
Now I've done lots of things in my life you see.
I've even trained my little tiny kitty.
But I never thought going on an ice cream spree
would affect my life so dramatically.

One scoop, two scoop, three scoop, four,
If I could just have a little more.
One uke, two uke, three uke, four,
Just show me the way to the ice cream uke store.

Yes every day I jump out of bed,
Say hi to my girls, pet the kitty on the head.
I've been given a new lease on life you see,
Happily playing the ukulele.

One scoop, two scoop, three scoop, four,
If I could just have a little more.
One uke, two uke, three uke, four,
Just show me the way to the ice cream uke store.

Now all I need is someone like me
If I knock on your door will you play with me?
I wonder if a little tiny kitty
could learn to play the ukulele.

Alright, here is my entry... Fair warning, we went for simplicity in order to get the whole family thing going. What we lack in lyrical and musical genius, I think we make up in heart. Enjoy!

Lyrics:
Come sing this song with me
This song is sung in "C"
This song will make you scream
This song about ice cream
Ice cream!

I love these contests. The prizes are great and the spirit of competition really inspires you. You guys and gals are really good too. I'm fairly new to all this but I'm having a lot of fun with it. Even when I delete and re-record the same song 15-20 times. Good luck everyone!

Thanks for having this contest. It was so much fun making my first video ever. I've had fun watching all the other entries too, my favorite is kilaana's (great jingle). I'm trying to get more people in our area interested in the uke and have been playing for the kids once a month in my little girls first grade class. Thanks again!

portlandjosh

First I just want to say that this was very difficult to choose a winner. Seriously, we really liked all of these. Thanks to everyone who posted and everyone who watched. Keep watching for more contests in the future.
...and the winners are...
After much deliberation with our team of expert choosers, we've come up with the following winners. I have to say that this was quite hard to choose because pretty much everyone rocked on this contest. We all picked different videos and a big cage fight broke out in the center of our cubicles. I'd like to say that I came out victorious, but the sun got in my eyes and I got distracted. After that, we sat back down and built a custom algorithm to decide the winner for us. The algorithm (which has recently become self-aware and will most likely enslave us all soon) came up with the following winners. I'm amazed that you guys can write original songs so dang fast...

...anywho, on to the prizes and stuff.

The grand prize winner is molomaru (link to video) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JnSIfeL-6E) with her stirring rendition of an epic tale of dastardly deeds and uke gods. She also wins for the best use of the words "epic" and "dastardly." We where all impressed with the emotion, facial expression, lyrics, story line and the creation of a previously unknown Norse God that fights with his Uke. She will be rewarded with an EleUke in either red or blue and a shirt... and the assurance that we think she should strike out on her own as a traveling minstrel.

In a close second, we have SparkyUkulele (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLwp3o4DOJI) because a song about making out and eating ice cream is rad. Also, this is a phenomenal vocal melody that I'm trying to rip to my iPod so I can listen to it all day. Sparky wins an EleUke hoodie and shirt.

The following honorable mentions all win an EleUke shirt. These are in no particular order... except of course the top to bottom, left to right kind of order...
gotrice415510 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PoB5nPyDvk) gets the "Watch Out Jack Johnson" Award for obvious reasons. This guy is good.
acousticballyhoo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6YkR-bUrus) gets the "Super Chill" Award. Way cool laid back song.
Ron (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szPCnyKLEH0) gets the "Innuendo Confusion" Award
portlandjosh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-atdAuxZkvU) gets the "Cutest Ensemble" Award and a shirt for each member of the band (wouldn't want to promote sibling rivalry)
Phatzo (http://www.youtube.com/user/phatuke#p/a/u/0/pjtf9cNJlCM) gets the "Best One-Liner" Award ... I've listened to "the bathroom to pee" section of this song at least 10 times.

So winners, PM me with your addresses, shirt sizes, color choices, phone number and stuff like that.

Dear everyone who entered,
Thanks for entering. We really enjoyed watching everyone's entries. I wish we could give prizes to all of you, but there's a group of mean accountant ninjas downstairs who really scare me. Don't worry, its not you, its me. Let's still be friends.
Love,
EleUkeUSA
