Fan Favorites

March 29, 2010

Here are two more clips from the video contest entries.  These were very much fan favorites…especially the Dr. Pepper one!  Josh, Matt, and Ben Haycraft, representin’ the Scott County Eldridge Library, made videos for last year’s contest, too.

This year the trio of brothers made a bit of video contest history as they were the first group to ever enter more than one video in the contest.  Hats off to that!  Oh wait, did they enter two last year?  Either way…they were the first!

Hooray for LOL Studios!
