The Scrappy Happiness Video Contest is wrapped! Congratulations to the winner, Eddie Orso from Toronto, Ontario!
Eddie submitted his music video for “North Star” and won with 1,119 votes as of July 15 at midnight AST, which means Joel Plaskett will travel to Toronto to play a concert for Eddie and 25 of his friends and family. You can watch Eddie’s awesome music video above. Eddie’s testimonial on why he had to win is also pretty great.
“I’m truly blown away by the time, energy and talent put into all the videos in the contest,” says Plaskett. “Trying to pick a few videos for honourable mention was like trying to pick my top 5 Zeppelin songs. Close to impossible because there are so many great ones. Having said that, here are 5 that really jumped out right away. I think I’m partial to animation and drawings.”
The director/creators of these five videos will receive a complete autographed JP discography on CD or vinyl:
“Somewhere Else” by Sam Hall and Jocelyn Spence:
“Tough Love” directed by Andrew Bundas:
“Lightning Bolt” drawn by Nicolas Friesen:
“Tough Love” starring the rocking kids:
“Lightning Bolt” drawn by Catie Doucette:
Everyone else who entered the contest will be receiving an autographed CD of Scrappy Happiness in the mail soon as a token of appreciation.
