You had to be there…

by Team Sony 12/01/2010

How many times have you heard this phrase, “You had to be there..”? It’s usually the ending to a story about something really funny that was experienced by everyone but you. No fun, right?

We can’t all be natural story tellers but with the aid of a little video, you can get pretty close. So the cute video about your cat or the time your kid accomplished something crazy out on the football field or the video you caught of your ex doing something really dumb that you’ve been itching to share with the world, can actually win you a cool Sony prize. Enter it in the “You had to be there” contest on Facebook. We want all you wannabe storytellers out there to be armed with the Sony MP4 camera everyone is buzzing about, the Sony Bloggie Touch, so you can share your fun moments with more than words.

Visit the Sony Electronic Facebook page and click on the Bloggie Touch tab. Follow the directions there to sharing your “You had to be there” moment via video along with a description of that moment.

There’s a nifty little application there that allows you to record directly into the app or upload a video from your computer and then edit. Follow the directions once you get to the page to learn how it works and then post away. Enter as many times as you like and make sure to tell your friends to check out your entry and give it a thumbs up. Five first prize winners will get a Sony Bloggie Touch camera and one grand prize winner will get the Bloggie Touch and a VIP package for 2 to attend an incredible music festival held in March 2011.

If you’re too shy to upload your own video, take part by voting on the videos you like the most. You’re sure to get at least a chuckle from many of the videos you see there!

Make sure to check out the contest rules here.

      Hey Anonymous! Glad you’ll be entering! Not to many entries right now, so your chances are great. BTW – have you figured out what the grand prize is?

          It’s a really really good prize. I can give you a hint… type Austin, Music Festival and March into a search. You’ll get the answer :)
