Swiffer Break Up Video Contest

For a $15,000 prize, I'll try most anything. This time it's the Swiffer/YouTube competition. You're supposed to create a minute long video showing how you broke up with your old cleaning supplies and turned to Swiffer instead. Here's what I came up with. A word of warning, this is my acting debut. Things are going to get ugly:





The deadline for the contest entries is tonight at midnight so if anyone wants to battle me for the prize, read the rules and send in your video here. I have to admit, I've never bought a Swiffer, but if they decide to give me thousands and thousands of dollars, I just might try one out!


-- 5 minute later update --

I think I totally did this contest wrong. I'm pretty sure they wanted me to dance. At least that's what everyone else is doing in their videos that I just found on YouTube. Shoot.

Oooh. Hahahaha. Hehehe. HoHoHo...

Got to say, I love my swiffer. I don't dust often, but only needing to pull out ONE item, instead of carrying a bottle and a rag all over the house, makes my life a lot easier! Works AWESOME on the floor, too, after I cut my sweetie's hair! (You know all those little hairs that the vacuums will NEVER pick up? Yeah. Those ones.) (Can I point out that I'm talking about their dusting wands...but the mops, etc. are pretty cool, too.)

where did you come from? So funny. I hope you win.

JustRandi said...

At least yours is different, right?
too funny!

Alissa said...

i'm just wondering how your husband feels about having his head edited out of your wedding pictures and replaced with a glorified broom? "you're such a tool!"

S'mee said...

I watch them all (yeah, no life this morning, but whatever) and I have to say I liked yours the best. You know me (in an 'e-who the heck is this chick?' sort of way) and I have never lied to you before. So good luck.

Summer said...

If the public could vote I'd vote for you.

You're freaking hilarious. That was awesome!

Heather O. said...

I LOVE the shot at the end--NIce! I'd vote for you.

Karen said...

You are so super creative. I think that looks better than a lot of commercials I've seen on TV. Good luck!

Katie said...

Totally hilarious. Better than any singing/dancing video. If you don't win then Swiffer doesn't deserve you.

You're insane, woman.

Good Insane, but insane, still. :)

Hollywood said...

Swiffer is going to pick their top 10 favorites and then put them up on YouTube next month for anyone/everyone to vote on. Some of the other entries are pretty cool (a few animated ones especially) so I'm not too optimistic about my chick-flick making the final cut, but it was fun to make.

(Hey, Draino - do you recognize the lingerie?)

The MomBabe said...

Cute!

Colleen said...

Okay, if you don't win the contest is totally rigged. That was ingenius.

Hollywood said...

Should I be nervous about exposing my broom-fetish to the entire world? 15K makes me do straaaaange things.

You guys are nice. I'm going to hold you to it if I get picked for the final voting.

the wiz said...

That was FABULOUS. You should totally win.

amanda said...

the wedding picture was too much. i am still laughing my head off.

pflower10 said...

I LOVED it! You are too funny! I wish I had something smashingly cleaver to say about this but I have to say I am having a foggy headed day today.

HOW could you not win???

Jill said...

I really wish I would have known about this contest sooner. I have a 7 year old son with a cleaning obsession, and who owns 3 different swiffers.
I also have a 12 year old son who is a genius at film making.
I think our family could have "cleaned up" in this contest.

April said...

Ummm... why are all of them dancing? I don't get it. Did it say "Swiffer Dance Contest"? I think yours is hands down the BEST.

Jamie J said...

Loved it!!

Nancy Sabina said...

Your acting debut was a total success (in a B-movie, Danielle Steel sort of way). I'll vote for you! And I'll brag to the world that I'm related to someone famous.

Is this when you share your millions with us because we read your blog?

Just Jenny said...

Haha! Thanks for the good laugh! Hope you win, you deserve something for that.

Mrs. M said...

Your movie is hilarious! I love it. Good think you're already in Hollywood - I think you're about to be discovered:)

Irishmama said...

You are nucking futs. You better win girl. Keep on making me laugh.

Jenny said...

Hollywood--you are bold. More power to you. I like that you and Swiffer got married in the temple, too!

Shiloh said...

Oh Hollywood! How I love your videos. I especially like this one since I'm in the final shot ;)

Jessica said...

You are the best, hands down!!

kaff said...

I will only charge 10% for the use of my face. Then again, I might give that back to you so you don't turn me into a cleaning item :) Very clever!

Julie said...

This video is incredible!
I hope you win

Maids Express said...

Nice job on the video. I think the Swiffer is great, and is an excellent way to do some green cleaning!

Amber said...

AWESOME!

Dane said...

That intro was creepily reminiscent of Mad Men. You're looking very Betty Draper these days.

Christine said...

I realized the Swiffer craze had reached epic proportions when I saw a pattern for a knit Swiffer cover. Oh my!

I like your video, and I think it was so great that your wedding gown still fits LOL!

You have great blog and I've really enjoyed reading it.

Perla said...

I loved your video. Sorry I couldn't vote because I only just now discovered your blog. I would vote for you over silly dancing with the Swiffer girls any day.
