RESTON, VA – November 30, 2009– Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones and plans today announces the winner and runners-up for its “Wirefly Video Challenge” contest. Launched in conjunction with Wirefly’s Anniversary Celebration and sponsored by wireless manufacturer LG, the contest tasked people to create a short video about Wirefly.com. Ultimately, three Wirefly shoppers armed with nothing but a cell phone, software and some ingenuity garnered the top spots by demonstrating how shopping at Wirefly can be convenient, affordable, and…hilarious?
John Hill, from Orlando, FL, is a mortgage broker by day, an animator, rapper, and cell phone expert by night! In his winning video, an animated cell phone shopper with attitude tells the viewer that he needs a new phone, “like a dog needs a bone,” and proceeds to detail his bone-getting experience when shopping on Wirefly.com.
Stephen Boyd took us into his dorm room at Ball State University in Muncie, IN to offer us his personal ode to Wirefly. Stephen is a man of many talents, from cross-country bicycling to releasing his own albums; in this video, he adds dancing and cell phone shopping to his list of accomplishments.
Carolyn Helene Morse is a writer and actor from Los Angeles and it shows! Her experiences in Hollywood range from puking on Parker Posey to being disqualified from “Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader.” Her prize-winning video highlighted the Wirefly Brand Promise of a better selection, greater savings, straight-forward pricing, and fast, free FedEx shipping when shopping for cell phones. Her creative set designs and use of props and actors got her a 3rd place finish in this contest.
All three winners received cash prizes and new LG phones, valued at over $3,000.
