12 Days of Tactical Christmas – Day #13

Wait a second. Did we say, “Day 13?” Yep, we sure did. You saw all of those great prizes, from a wide variety of supporters. When we approached them, we asked if they’d be willing to support a “13th day” and once we explained to them what we had in mind they all readily agreed. This 13th day is a grand prize if you will consisting of one of each of the prizes awarded in the various daily giveaways. If there was a bonus giveaway on any particular day, the winner will get one of those too.

Because of the enormity of the offering, we had to come up with something that would make you work for it, so here it is:

You have to create a video of the 12 Days of Tactical Christmas song – The WHOLE thing, sung to the tune of “12 Days of Christmas”. If there was more than one video posted on a particular day you can choose which product you want to include in your song. It’s up to you how you do it (some segments we used were shot on an iPhone), but upload it somewhere online (preferably YouTube) and post the link to the video in the comments section of THIS post. You have from now until 1200Z (GMT) 9 January, 2012 to create and post your video. After that, we are going to watch them and select a single winner. Accuracy counts as far as products and quantities but we are interested in originality. Must be 18 to enter. Void where prohibited. It must be your work. You must understand that it will be seen by other readers and that we are going to post it on SSD announcing the winner.

Make sure you use a valid email address so we can contact you in case you win.

Ready? Set? Go?

    I can’t carry a tune in a bucket….The videos should be quite entertaining! If nothing else I enjoy the site. Thanks for all your hard work and wishes for continued success.

    I’m sorry for inflicting this on you, I really am, but I’ll try just about anything (once) for some awesome swag.

    I also realize the sadness in equating Make a Video with Create a PowerPoint, but if you’re watching the video, that’s really the least of your problems.

    Legal Notice: Eye or Ear bleed is not my fault. Bulk do nothing wrong. Bulk just recite words to a lyrical tune. Why can’t Bulk just be Bulk?
    Seriously though, if your ears start bleeding, turn off the audio. And maybe see a Doctor.

    I’m assuming that animating something would count as making a video? I think I’ve got just the thing lying around here…

    Darnn technology. But, If I was a movie producer, I would take clips out of my favorite war movies for the last 12 years and piece together a Video with credits and special thanks to SSD for making a great Christmas gift.
