Weepies Issue A $10,000 Video Challenge

May 28, 2008

With the release of their newest CD, Hideaway, The Weepies are offering you (or people like you) an opportunity to create a video for the album's title song. They're working through Imeem and there's $10,000 in it for the winner (along with being able to say that they are professional video producers). The Weepies are really working their way into America's pop culture consciousness with a couple of songs finding their way into TV ads and popping up on the new Sex in the City soundtrack. Hideaway debuted at #31 on the Billboard Top 200 chart (as my mother would say: "Big time Charlie Bubbles!"). The contest runs now through July 3rd.

It was Jim's birthday, and he was considered to be an "old man" by his friends standards. So, to liven him up a bit, Jim's friends decided to give him something special for his birthday. They bought him a hooker.
