So it seems I'm in this contest on Facebook, promoting a company called .ME which is all about personal website domains ("You're not a company, you're a person" is their slogan).

They got a bunch of comedians together and recorded them.  Unfortunately, what they told me I needed to prepare turned out to be vastly different than what they needed, so I had to scramble at the last minute to get stuff together that worked.  However, the clips have come out better than I would have expected, given all of that, and I've made it to Round 3.

If you're on Facebook and you wouldn't mind, please vote for me.  

Here's the link:  https://www.facebook.com/domainME?sk=app_320061268091680

I am #10.  Big dude in a peach shirt.

You can vote once a day.

The system has been having all kinds of problems and is still a little messed up.  You have to scroll down to my bracket, click on me, then scroll back up to vote.  It will ask you for your info and can autofill.  I understand if you don't want to do that.  On the other hand, you can win a Canon Rebel T31, so it might be worth it.

We're in the final push, and I would love some support, if you can manage it.  Thanks, gang!

Are there any video or audio clips of your routine? I'd like to know what I'm voting for before I cede my firstborn to facebook. Make me laugh, funny boy.

Are you trying to do it from an iPhone or an iPad?  The video doesn't seem to appear on those (although sometimes I've had it work on the iPad...as I say, this whole thing has been a mess).

If you're looking at it on a PC (or Mac, I assume), a video should pop up where you vote.

Yeah, I could see it on my iPad, but it wouldn't play. Just went back to the page and it says I voted already (yesterday) so I think it is probably working even though it doesn't acknowledge it when you hit the button.

Oh and I voted.  I liked how Vacation Jason's started but there was no punchline so your silly dog impression wins because it made me grin.  Will hit it up tomorrow as well.  Good luck!  Oh and Man Made Movie, good stuff!

Ditto. I ordinarily don't allow any apps at all. It's possible to uninstall them, but not very straightforward.

Voted for you, didn't like that vacation Jason anyway.  Is it a different clip each time you vote; some of those were pretty bad.  You and the woman left were the only two that were funny.

Thanks.  I think it's supposed to be a different clip each time, but both mine and Vacation Jason (agreed...terrible) seem to be repeats.  Not sure why, except that it's par for the course for these guys.

I have to say I was surprised at the lack of quality of most of the participants.

Sometime today we head into the Final Round!

Please go and vote for me and hopefully I'll make it (Look for #10 - Big guy in peach shirt).

Remember you can vote once a day.

Thank you to everyone who has voted.  Heck, thanks even to folks who took the time to look at it but didn't want to go through the awkward hoops they've set up for this thing. 

Wish me luck.

There is a tomorrow, and it's today, since I made it into the FINAL ROUND!

So please keep voting in this annoying system for just a little longer.  I promise not to have people call your house and ask you to take a poll.  Just vote.

I think it's a set of steak knives.

Honestly, there may be a little moolah involved, but the point is just to do it at this point and say I did.  Also, it wouldn't hurt any chances of being used for a radio or future TV ad (although the one .ME is going to run is pretty good, I have to say).

EDIT:NVM,i see the the like is separate like a usual facebook like...i thought that was how many votes you had gained(its 15 to 16 now icon_wink)

From what I understand, it goes until tomorrow at midnight.  Now, as seems to be typical with the people running this, they've listed the end as 12am Sunday, but have said that you should have two more chances to vote, so it seems they really mean 12am Monday.

EDIT:  It appears that the contest for winning the camera is over.  The voting for comedy continues, however.

Agh, so I was wondering why I couldn't figure out how to vote again. Apparently I've never actually voted, just did the link thing. Stupid IE doesn't work with the site right, switching to Chrome allowed me to actually vote.... disgust

Edit. Now I'm wondering if I actually voted based on Azhag's post. If it says 'Voted!' underneath the picture, it's all good, yes?

Thanks, gang!  I really appreciate all the help from here.  I wish I knew what winning this thing means, if anything, but it's still a good, fuzzy feeling.

And now that you know my IRL identity, feel free to friend me on FB if you want.  Just make sure to add a note about GT, so I have an idea where you're coming from.
