    hi all. i need your votes!

    there is a new movie coming out about a pharmaceutical sales rep. along with it, they had a contest to make a fake commercial for a drug. so, myself and my crew made a little mock commercial for "vivexx"... it is awesome, but it needs your help to win the contest!

    go here:

    http://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com/bonus/contest.shtml

    vote for:

    vivexx- the new breakthrough treatment for hdd

    it's not totally clear how the voting works, but make sure to click on the hdd one first, to ensure that you vote for it.. then check out the other (lesser) videos.

    you can only vote once, seemingly based on ip address, but feel free to vote from home, the office, the library, the school computer lab, etc etc...

    and tell all your friends!

    thanks for your votes!

    it isn't perfect that's for sure. click on the title of the movie. then when it brings up the filename or whatever, click on the title again at the bottom where it lists the peoples' names.... that seems to work, though not quickly.

    the site is probably getting a decent sized hit with everyone publicizing it at once

    keep voting for the treatment for HDD!!!

    Yea, clicking the title of the movie to play it doesn't work in Safari.

    I got it to work in Safari and I voted for it. :cool:

    Interestingly, it loops for me. Most movies won't do that.

    let's keep those votes coming!! we're in solid second, but have some work to do to catch up to first. help us out!

    it worked for me in safari too, though it was flaky at times. basically the best bet is to vote first, then click on the titles of the films. then when you're brought to that film's link, click the title again at the bottom, and then be patient.

    not sure how much bandwidth the site was expecting to use for this...

    thanks!

    I voted for ya, and it looks like this is a link to the commercial for those who can't get it to play.

    (Ctrl-Click or Right-Click to save)

    thanks for the direct link!

    we're within 6% of 1st place now, so keep up the votes! and for those of you who are really friendly, check back to the site a while after voting. it may very well let you vote again, especially if you're using a wireless router or something else that may have a dynamic ip!

    thanks!

    awesome! thanks and keep the votes coming!

    it's definitely possible to vote more than once from the same place, especially after a couple hours. so, feel free to vote as often as you think of it! :)

    I voted for you! (from the UK) ----- but couldn't see any of the commercials, no menus or anything; just got the voting box (Panther and Safari). Tried the alternative link from monekeydo jb and just got the Quicktime logo.
    But you seem to be way ahead. So, er --- well done. I would have liked to see the pics though.

    we could go on for a while about the ethics of it all, i think. there's really no way to get a pure vote in these online things. ultimately it will come down to marketing, who has the most friends, rather than whose is preferred.

    therefore, vote again!

    we've slipped barely out of first place. help bring us back!!

    thanks. :)

    You got my vote. I couldn't be bothered watching any of the other ones. So I'm just assuming yours is the best. ;)
