Birthdays are about celebrations. And what better way to celebrate than dancing?
Since November 2011, a song has been hitting the world by storm, making people dance, have fun, and in turn, has made the artist/dj of the song a world-wide phenomenon. Have guessed this by now? If not - the song, which landed #1 on charts in Austria, Belgium, Brasil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Italy, Isarael, Romania, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, and Venezuela. Do you know what song we're talking about yet? Well, we'll make it easier - "Ai Se Eu Te Pego!" by Michel Teló.
Many of you may be like "whaaaat?!" but, looking at TibiaNews statistics, and seeing the players in-game now, many people should know this song (it's still not big in the US, landing #6 on the US Latino Charts, but even still!) So, as anything with TibiaNews and our contests (anyone remember the King Tibianus & Queen Eloise contest?) we were thinking why not Tibianize this song?
What if people were able to shoot a video of them and their friends doing the dance to this song, (real life), or even coordinating a bunch of "Tibia" characters to dance to it? The more people - the better! The song is already a world-wide phenomenon, even getting remixed by hit artist Pitbull. So, here's your task, and we'll get down to business:
You as the contestant, the player, to join our contest, has to make a music video for the hit song "Ai Se Eu Te Pego." Players may use the original song by Michel Teló ("Ai Se Eu Te Pego") or the remix by Pitbull ("Ai Se Eu Te Pego - Buddha, Gregor Salto, Kassiano Mix DRM"). Players would have three weeks to submit their content, starting Tuesday, April 10th, and ending Tuesday, May 1st. You could download the Pitbull remix for free using Soundcloud, here.
Now you must be wondering, what are the prizes?! And that's a great question! The prizes will go as follows:
1st place: fansite item, heavy medal, tome of choice
2nd place: royal medal, yellow rose, rune embleme of choice
3rd place: hero's medal, frozen starlight, rune embleme of choice
4th place: rune embleme of choice
Please read before submitting your entry: Videos will be judged by TibiaNews Staff and will be judged based on creativity, and of course, originality. Players will be allowed to use "real life" videos of themselves (players must prove it is them by holding a card/paper with their character name on it, and 'TibiaNews Birthday Contest' dubbed on the card/paper as well). Players are also allowed to use "graphics" from Tibia, but will be disqualified if any illegal/unfair graphics were used (eg. "Open Tibia"). Players may edit the video(s) to best fit their needs for the video and the song. Players may use gaming graphics from elsewhere (eg. "World of Warcraft," "Second Life") so long as the Tibia atmosphere of the area is still met. Players must submit their videos to the appropriate thread, and upload their videos on either "YouTube" OR "Vimeo". Players that are not able to upload their videos on either of these sites must speak to a staff member for an exception to be made. When posting, add hashtag #tibianewsbirthday to your video for easy access for our judges. Also post the link in the approprate thread on our Contest Boards. Keep in mind this contest is about celebrating eight years of TibiaNews; dancing is how we want to break in our eight years of life. Keep dance moves appropriate for all ages and audiences. Submissions must be made by Tuesday, May 1st, 2012 11:59 EDT. Anything posted thereafter will not be counted for entry. Most importantly - have fun!
