Ladies & Gents, we have to delay the announcement of the ANCESTOR User-Generated Video Contest finalists. ARealGirl and I took the view-count totals right at the contest deadline. We know who the top-5 were. However, there does appear to be some views that need verifying. Some of the view counts deviate greatly from the overall patterns.

We apologize to the contestants for the delay, but we want to make sure that the views were valid, were made by real people. If someone was gaming the system by using bot-nets or other view-count inflators, than that is unfair to the people who worked very hard to pimp their video to friends, family, or who found cool places to post it where people would watch.

We don't have a specific date when we will announce the finalists. Please be patient, this isn't a simple black-and-white issue (see what I did there? "Black-and-white?" In relation to an ANCESTOR thing? Boom!).

I'm glad that you're taking

I'm glad that you're taking the time to review the counts. I was sort of worried when you posted a comment on youtube, and it didn't give the impression that you either cared or noticed the huge variance in numbers.

Although I haven't manually voted, I will say that #13 with Sunny Jain and Keith Andreen looked hella professional. It was so professional-looking it hurt! It seems almost unfair to compare the rest to that version.

Anyways, I hope to see you when you bring your tour to my town.

Who is this "Chad" guy

and why does he always seem to just be hanging? Where does he hang? Is it Starbucks... because I saw a guy there just the other day who looked like a "Chad", and he looked like a guy who needs to get a job. Smile

Clarification: We are NOT saying anyon cheated

There are two videos in the top 5 that have some irregularities, but that doesn't mean they cheated. We need to verify the authenticity of the views. If both of them check out, all the guys did was find a very creative way to generate actual views. Hold off on cheating accusations until we can be sure.

hopefully this contest isn't

hopefully this contest isn't only dependent on top 5 view counts...there's some videos in the top 5 that aren't very prize worthy

"Hanging Chad"

During the 2000 election, one of the nighttime talk shows decided to have some fun with the whole "chad" thing. Several generic male models walked onto the stage and introduced themselves as various varieties of Chads (dimpled Chad, pregnant Chad). "Hanging Chad" was wearing a bathrobe. After he introduced himself, he attempted to remove it. The host stopped him.
