FOX and MySpace invite fans to continue to “Unleash Your Yellow” and celebrate 20 years of television’s favorite family with THE SIMPSONS Video Contest. Based on the iconic couch gag from THE SIMPSONS opening credits, fans are encouraged to create live-action videos of their own original couch gags and upload them to THE SIMPSONS MySpace page at myspace.com/thesimpsons.
Beginning today, fans 18 years and over will have the opportunity to submit and share their “Best. Couch Gag. Ever.” live-action videos. On June 22, 2009, two winners – one grand prize winner chosen by a judging panel including THE SIMPSONS producers and one fan favorite chosen based on MySpace fan ratings – will be announced and may be featured online. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM ET on Monday, May 18, 2009. Official rules and more information can be found at myspace.com/thesimpsons.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip to Los Angeles to attend THE SIMPSONS 21st season premiere party, a Sony Home Entertainment System and a custom SIMPSONS drawing. The fan favorite winner will receive a SIMPSONS prize package.
