  1. THANK YOU for changing this rule!!! You made my day!!! Along with that of many other Canadians!!!

    [ from tanster: you’re welcome! :) ]

  2. Would be amazing to enter into this contest, sadly I am going with 3 other people so I’ll just have to wait until tickets go on sale.

    Good Luck to everyone that enters!

  3. To clarify one point, we’ve changed:
    ‘No copyrighted audio, photos, video, etc. from The Office allowed.’

    ‘No video or audio recording from “The Office” show, or any other show or artist, allowed.’


  4. I uploaded my video to Youtube, and when you see the thumbnail it says it’s 1:01, but in reality it’s only 1:00. When you click on the video it shows that it is only 1:00. I just wanted to post this in case this happened to others as well. My video came out to be 59 seconds, and then Youtube added two seconds onto it (only in the thumbnail of course). Just wanted to make sure you wouldn’t be put off by the thumbnail. It’s on time, you’ll see it when you click on the video. I just don’t want people’s videos not to be viewed because of a Youtube error. Thank you! :)

    [from tanster: thank for the tip! to clarify, in the midst of an entry playing, the youtube counter should say the total time is 1:00.]

  5. This contest is now closed.

    Now comes the very difficult task of the judging team to pick a winner…

    Thanks to everybody who submitted an entry. They’re all uh-MAZE-ing!
